And here are three other things you should know:
1. The COVID take on haunted houses. Looking for something unique this coming Halloween night? What about a haunted drive through car wash? In Birmingham, AL, the Patel's car wash has strobe lights, signs, and creepy clowns and characters walking around and in between cars waiting to go through the tunnel. There is Pennywise, the clown from Stephen King's book and movie It, Jason from Friday the 13th, and, of course Michael Myers, from the movie Halloween. Not to mention someone in a bunny head wielding a chainsaw. NPR
2. New restaurants for Fall. Sadly the COVID pandemic has halted so much in the food industry, but with some cautious optimism, check out some of these new restaurants set to open in Atlanta this fall. Eater
3. Shopify + TikTok. TikTok announced this week that it will be partnering with Shopify to bring shoppable video content to its users. Phase 1: Shopify’s one million+ U.S. merchants can now create shoppable ads through a TikTok for Business integration with their stores. Phase 2: TikTok and Shopify said they’ll continue to develop in-app purchasing tools and experiences, potentially for #notspon organic content. More to come... Retail Brew
