In April of 2012 we, the Haunted Halloween Store family, lost a very precious family member. Gary Matthews Sr. was not only a beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather. He was the Haunted Halloween Store's scariest animated prop! Gary would often suit up in his one of a kind werewolf costume and set himself up in one of the many scenes throughout the store.
His goal was very simple: "Scare the dickens out of them!"
"Them", of course referring to the wide variety of customers that would come visit the store. It did not matter how tough you thought you were--if you came across Gary in costume you were sure to scream like a girl! When we heard the blood-curdling screams of frightened customers we knew that Gary had struck again! And if you were behind the mask of dear old Gary you would hear laughter after every successful scare!
Gary is still with us and the store through spirit and I can guarantee you that for every scream that echoes through the Haunted Halloween Store he will be laughing from above!
