LAS VEGAS -- Ghosts and goblins will roam the night this Halloween, but based on sales predictions, the upcoming holiday is looking anything but scary for retailers. They're hoping Halloween creates momentum that carries them through the rest of the year.
Experts predict Americans will spend almost $6 billion on Halloween, with the average person spending about $66. That's $10 more than last year.
Consumers are getting confidence and retailers will reap the rewards.
"You can spend your money and stimulate the economy, but it creates extra jobs if you need a part time job or you want to work a couple extra hours," said Halloween shopper Dawn Weir.
Halloween City is hiring 10,000 temporary workers nationwide. Daniel Allison hopes to land one of those jobs.
"I have a lot on my plate right now. I'm going through a rough time financially and just trying to get through it," he said.
