Asda Cumbernauld has appointed official ‘spooks-people’ to cope with the demand for Halloween advice from customers.

The Cumbernauld store will have its own spooks-person who will be clearly visible in spooky attire and on hand to help customers find what they’re after for their ghoulish gatherings.

Asda Event Manager, Chris Waters, said: “Halloween is extremely popular with our customers but choosing the right treats, costumes and party foods can be a real challenge.

“Our spooks-people will be on hand to show customers ‘witch’ way to turn for all their spooky shopping and how they can save with any Halloween deals and help them find all they need to feed their own little vampires.”

The spooks-people will replace Asda’s go-getters for the Halloween period and will be on hand to help customers with any Halloween items they’ve forgotten when they reach the till, ensure queues are kept to a minimum during the busy period and to offer advice on everything from stocking up for trick or treat or what you need for Halloween games.

To celebrate, store cafes are also offering children the chance to create their own monsters in a drawing design competition, with the winning monster being introduced as a new character for Halloween 2014.

To enter simply visit Asda Cumbernauld, 1 Tryst Rd, Cumbernauld G67 1JW and visit the café or speak to the Community Life Champion.
