Are Halloween candy sales at risk of being muted this year? As trick-or-treating gets delayed up and down the Eastern Seaboard the estimated $2.4B boom in candy sales in front of the holiday could come in light this year. Analysts say it won't be candy manufacturers that take the hit with stores already loaded up, but drugstore chains such as Walgreen (WAG), CVS Caremark (CVS), and Rite Aid (RAD) could see a disappointing holiday haul.
