Consumers to Spend $490M on Pet Costumes

That’s more than double what was spent in 2010.




Shoppers will spend $490 million on Halloween costumes for their pets, according to the National Retail Federation.

That’s more than double what consumers spent on pet costumes in 2010, when NRF first reported on such spending.

About 17 percent of those surveyed said they’ll dress up their pets this year. That represents significant growth since 2010, when the figure was 12 percent.

“Dressing up pets might seem absurd to some, but it’s grown in popularity over the years and is becoming big business,” NRF states in a blog post.
