Rubie's has opened its first dedicated stores in the US.

Based at Rubie’s headquarters in Long Island, the 17,000-square-foot flagship Westbury store boasts a haunted house area called The Dark Zone and other ghoulish interactive exhibits.

A second store has also been opened in Melville.

“It’s unlike any retail store you’ve ever seen,” Marc Beige, principal of Rubie’s Costume Co told Libn.

“It’s an experience.”

The stores stock what Rubie's has deemed the largest selection of costumes, masks and accessories available in a physical retail store.
