Fancy Dress Mad pops up in Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre for Halloween

Date published: 16 October 2019

The pop-up shop in the Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre has been taken over by Fancy Dress Mad until Saturday 2 November.

Having opened in Heywood in 2017, Fancy Dress Mad offers an extensive range of fancy-dress costumes, outfits and accessories for any occasion.

Now the costumier is temporarily bringing its goods to Rochdale town centre in time for Halloween by occupying the Rochdale Business Improvement District’s pop-up shop.

Julie Stephenson, from Fancy Dress Mad, said: “We jumped at the chance to be able to bring Halloween to the Wheatsheaf Centre with our pop-up shop.

"It is obviously our favourite time of the year and we are thrilled to be able to offer shoppers one of the widest ranges of Halloween products. Whether it is a Halloween party, trick or treating in the neighbourhood or a fancy-dress night, we have everything for every event.”

Paul Ambrose, Rochdale Business Improvement District Manager, said: “Halloween is a really fun time and I’m delighted that the Fancy Dress Mad have decided to use the BID pop up shop.

“The Halloween pop up shops forms part of the Town Centre Halloween Festival which will see the town centre being taken over by an assortment of ghoulish celebrations – offering the chance for little and big kids everywhere to get in on the spooky October.”

Fancy Dress Mad in the Wheatsheaf Centre is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
