PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Halloween is coming a little earlier this year at Lowe’s in the Philadelphia area and around the nation. For the first time, the home improvement company is hosting what it is calling Hal-LOWE-en Trick-or-Treat Tryouts at stores across the country.

Lowe’s says it’s a way to allow people to show off their costumes, collect some candy and take photos, especially since the coronavirus pandemic curtailed Halloween gatherings in 2020.
