SOUTH PORTLAND — Like an apparition, Spirit Halloween will soon vanish.

The shop – one of two such Halloween-themed pop-ups in South Portland – inhabits the former site of Bob’s Stores, 301 Maine Mall Road.

Today and Wednesday, the store is selling its wares at half-price in the wake of Halloween. Then, later this month, the unsold merchandise will be packed up and the space vacated again.

In the meantime, Lisbon resident Tina Currie will continue her temporary job for the national franchise, which she describes as the “toughest job” she’s ever had.

“It’s always busy here,” she said. “It’s just ‘go, go, go.'”

Currie started in early September. Entry-level pay is $9 an hour, but Currie started at $10 an hour for her role as supervisor.

Eight employees were hired in August when the store opened. At the height of the season, 20 employees helped with the last-minute rush for costumes. Store consultant Deede Dunbar said Spirit Halloween stores typically earn 50 percent of their seasonal revenue during the final week before November. Aside from Spirit Halloween, Currie is self-employed hosting in-home parties – kind of like Tupperware parties – for sensual-aid company Pure Romance.
