Lifestyle retail company Spencer’s and seasonal pop-up shop Spirit Halloween are expanding the Egg Harbor Township corporate campus they share.
In a May 18 press release, the Spencer Spirit Holdings Inc.-owned brands announced plans to add 81,000 square feet of office space and amenities to the property, bringing the total footprint to 24 acres, or, the size of five baseball fields.
Designed to accommodate the company’s growing workforce, the new area will have features such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 1-mile outdoor walking path, outside meeting spaces, solar paneling and electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot.
The project is expected to be completed by spring 2024.
Of the company’s 30,000 employees nationwide, 700 work at the corporate office, according to Spencer’s.
Steven Silverstein, chief executive officer of Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween, said, “For 46 years, we’ve called Egg Harbor Township home and this expansion of our corporate campus will further strengthen our commitment to the community and our associates for years to come.”
“We look forward to welcoming new members to our Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween family where our guiding principle has always been to foster an environment of inclusivity, passion, and resilience, embracing differences, authenticity, and fun for all,” he said.
The company is also actively looking for candidates to fill a variety of positions across multiple corporate functions, with half of the current openings in the tech sector. Additionally, seasonal employment opportunities are available in corporate and guest services.
Founded in 1947 as a mail-order catalog in Pennsylvania, Spencer’s opened its first brick-and-mortar store in 1963 and has since grown to 680 retail locations, in addition to an online presence.
Celebrating 40 years in business, Spirit Halloween is the largest Halloween retailer in the country. With more than 1,500 seasonal locations in shopping plazas and strip malls across North America, Spirit Halloween is the go-to destination for costumes, decorations, props and accessories. The brand also operates an online store, year-round.l
