With Halloween being just days away, many area businesses are seeing an increase of customers searching to find the perfect last minute costume.
At Performance Studios in Nashville, thousands of people have already passed through the doors looking for costumes.
From scary to fun, costumes were flying off the racks on Friday.
Owner Gary Broadrick says the store is filled from the time it opens until they close.
"I can't help but attribute that to this whole American idea of supporting local business," he told Nashville's News 2.
Despite the crowd, Performance Studios still had nearly everything customers were searching for.
"We did run out of one [costume], and it's the first one we've run out of and it was Toddlers and Tiaras [star Honey Boo-Boo] for an adult woman," Broadrick said.
By Friday afternoon he said another shipment had arrived for aspiring Honey Boo-Boos.
"Police things, SWAT costumes. SWAT costume for males and females [we] always sell lots but we always run out at the very end."
Broadrick says fun costumes always outnumber scary ones and that women prefer to look cute instead of scary.
"Even zombie girls, they want something that makes them look appealing when they go out," he said.
Political costumes seem to sell well at the Nashville costume store.
Masks of President Barrack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney were on racks next to each other.
Broadrick said, just like real life, the number of masks sold remained "neck in neck."
The National Retail Federation estimates people will spend almost $80 on Halloween costumes and decorations, which is up $7.51 from last year.
