Since 1824, when the first balloons were invented, people have found every excuse to party.
So in 1980, we figured we'd better open stores and ensure that every man, woman and child had a
place to go for balloons and all their celebration needs. And that's what we did. Our first
company goal was simple. To become the best darn party store in the Western United States.
We were a small, regional company with solid new store growth, with locations primarily in
California and Colorado. However, it soon became apparent that our party FUN was needed throughout
In August 2003, we had an opportunity to purchase the Minneapolis based Paper Warehouse,
and add 100 stores to our Party family. This expanded our party influence throughout Minnesota,
Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tucson, Arizona and we gained Franchise locations in other states
But there was still so much partying to be done, that we couldn't stop there, so in October
2004, we purchased the Wisconsin based Party Concepts. This added over 130 more locations to our
company. The acquisition also provided us with stores in factory outlet malls throughout the
United States. These stores operate under the names Paper Factory and Paper Outlet stores.
This acquisition allowed us to continue to spread FUN beyond our typical store locations, which
are generally located in high-traffic power centers. You know, the ones with Target, Michael's,
Toys R Us, Home Depot, well you get the idea.
We had our biggest party October of 2006! We joined the Party City family! Party City opened its first one-stop party supply store in 1986 in East Hanover, New Jersey. Today, Party City is the world's largest party supply retailer, with over 500 stores. Together, we are over 700 stores located all over the United States and Puerto Rico! We are committed to being the best at helping our customers celebrate every occasion. We offer an unrivalled selection of merchandise, competitive pricing and helpful, knowledgeable staff.
