With Halloween creeping closer and the holiday being a key period for retailers, many convenience stores are trying to boost sales with themed displays.

Budgens in East Finchley, London, have masks and sweet treats on offer as well as pumpkins on sale alongside carving kits, so you can create your own Halloween masterpiece. 

Pumpkins are also the main event at this bountiful display in this Hunts Spar in Heskin, outside Preston. The autumnal display features pumpkins of varying colours, shapes and sizes arranged in wooden crates and baskets to give a more country feel.

Co-op in Tynemouth is also getting in on the act with a seasonal display that focuses on the sweeter side of things.

A Nisa store in Evington, near Leicester, has added some flair with its mechanical skeletons perched on top of their milkshake and Frozen Yoghurt machines. The skeletons creepily play their banjos as their eyes light up a scary blood red.
