The end of the summer means one thing for retail—it's time to lean into Halloween. Costco began slowly rolling out Halloween stuff in mid-July and now the stores are in full spooky spirit. Yes, that terrifying animatronic mummy that you can see from any point in the warehouse can be yours for a few hundred dollars.

Costco has plenty of amazing candy year-round, but the warehouse club takes it to the next level for Halloween, offering candy variety packs you can't find elsewhere. Prefer to give out something else for trick or treating? The bulk retailer has that covered, too. Costumes and decor make this a true one-stop-shop for all of your Halloween needs. You can usually expect some of the stuff to go on sale closer to October, but you also run the risk of it selling out and people get very serious about Halloween.

So, even if the sun is still blazing, it's worth pretending it's October in your air-conditioned warehouse, and grab these 15 Halloween items.

Kirkland Signature Funhouse Treats

This candy bag is filled with the best variety of non-chocolate candy. Although Costco won't commit to each bag including all of these, there's generally a great mix of AirHeads Mini Bars, Haribo Gold Bears, Jolly Rancher Stix, Sour Patch Kids, Sour Punch Twists, Skittles, Swedish Fish, Starburst, and Twizzlers in the 92-ounce bag. It'll run you $17.49 at the warehouse, and a few dollars more online.

Kirkland All Chocolate Variety

This candy variety is just like the Funhouse variety, albeit slightly smaller at 90 ounces, but the bag is filled with fun-sized versions of all of the best chocolates out there. It's hard not to open this one before Halloween to grab a treat like Kit Kat or Twix, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Milky Way, Snickers, M&Ms (plain and peanut), 100 Grand, Almond Joy, and York Peppermint Patty. This is one of the other places you'll see the major candy makers collaborate on one variety pack, so it's worth snagging a few bags. The bag costs $19.99 in warehouse and $22.99 online.

Kids Halloween Costumes

It always feels too early when the kids' Halloween costumes arrive at Costco. Maybe that's because it's hard to convince kids to take off the costume once they own it. Or, maybe because they'll change their mind 700 times before Halloween starts. Either way, if you're planning to get a Halloween costume from Costco, you better act fast. Priced at $29.99 in the warehouse, these costumes include classic picks like firefighters, superheroes, princesses, and witches—all of which will cost a few bucks more when you shop online.

Disney Halloween Village Set

Lights and Halloween music make this a delightful Halloween landscape for all ages.
