Oakland businesses prepare for Halloween rush

Oakland North asked employees at local businesses what they're doing to prepare for Halloween celebrations this year.

This Halloween, Oakland North asked employees at a few local businesses—Powell’s Sweet Shoppe, the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, Piedmont Grocery and Piedmont Fabric—what they did to prepare for the holiday this year. Business owners said they began preparing for Halloween at least a month ago, and have seen their biggest rush of customers this week.
