    More than two-thirds of shoppers in California are cutting back permanently.

    With Halloween this weekend and the holidays quickly approaching, shoppers are coming out of the woodwork to fulfill their need to buy. To take advantage of this, many business entrepreneurs are opening temporary retail facilities called pop-up stores.

    The openings of these temporary stores can help the local economy in many ways, starting with their employment of local citizens.

    Toys ‘R’ Us is opening nine seasonal Express stores in the Philadelphia aregion for the holiday season. Harry & David’s, the upscale fruit grower and seller, is opening 16 pop-up “orchards,” around the country, one of which is in Philadelphia. And Borders has two pop-up locations in the Tristate area.

    Toys ‘R’ Us Express locations:

    · Gallery at Market East in Philadelphia, Pa.
    · Roosevelt Mall in Philadelphia, Pa.
    · Franklin Mills in Philadelphia, Pa.
    · The Shops at 69th Street in Upper Darby, Pa.
