 SUSSEX COUNTY, De-

Halloween is right around the corner and that means stores are busy keeping their shelves filled with decorations, costumes, and candy. Each year the most popular of each are always changing.

Weis Market always anticipates high demand of treats and candy.

"It's those kids getting ready for their Halloween candy. That's going to be a super huge mover for us this week," said Rehoboth Beach Weis store manager Patrick McDonald.

When it comes to which candy is most popular, it doesn't depend on the brand. McDonald says bigger is better.

"The 3 or 4 pound bags. Those have been our number one movers," McDonald said.

When it comes to kids costumes, the most popular is whatever's on the big screen. Walmart told WRDE that nationally the top selling costumes are characters from The Descendants, Toy Story, and Spider-Man. In Delaware the top selling kids costumes are superheros and characters from The Descendants.

People of all ages like dressing up! The top selling adult costume in Delaware this year was Peppa Pig.
