Ashley Counts helps a fellow employee hang up costumes at Gotcha! in downtown Columbia on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Counts has been working at Gotcha! for three years. "The job is pretty insane, but also really fun," she said.
Costumes and decorations fill the alley between Ninth and Tenth Streets on Walnut in downtown Columbia as part of Gotcha!'s Halloween preparation. Gotcha! has began renting costumes for the approaching holiday, and now has extended store hours every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
