WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- The National Retail Federation(NRF) released a report saying record-breaking numbers could be on the way for sales related to Halloween.

The NRF said consumers are expected to spend a record $10.14 Billion, which is up from a little over $8 Billion last year.

Last year the C-D-C advised against trick-or-treating, which could have played a factor in a reduced number of sales.

Michael Roosevelt, a central Wisconsin resident, said he and his wife have already started spending and decorating their home for Halloween.

"My wife and I have been putting up decorations in phases," Roosevelt said. "The most expensive one is the inflatable here. That was about $200."

The NRF's report also stated the average consumer is expected to spend a little over $100 collectively, which is $10 more than last year's average.
