   The Abracadabra Superstore is a Halloween emporium with over 12,000 costumes, hundreds of masks, magician’s supplies, marionettes, puppets, special effects, theatrical make up, props, a wig gallery, hats, fake food, and stuffed giant monsters. Everything imaginable can be found at this two floor superstore that is frequently used for the rental of movie props. The Abracadabra Superstore was featured on several shows such as CNN, Fox News, and the Today Show, for being one of the great stores for Halloween costumes and rentals. The store even has a list of celebrity customers that includes Robert DeNiro, Keith Richards, Michael Jackson, and Al Pacino. The store has a no returns policy, so take your time getting the right fit when purchasing a costume. Also, the condition and availability of the costume rentals are subject to change, so I would recommend renting the costume on-the-spot and not in advance.
   The Abracadabra Superstore is located between 5th and 6th Avenues and is open seven days a week from 11am-9pm.
