Boilerplate

Party City Holdings Inc. designs, manufactures, contracts for manufacture and distributes party goods, including paper and plastic tableware, metallic balloons, accessories, novelties, gifts, stationery and Halloween costumes, and is North America’s No. 1 party retailer with more than 750 company-owned and franchise locations throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Headquartered in Rockaway, N.J., Party City became part of the Amscan Holdings, Inc., family in 2005. With their worldwide facilities in Asia, Europe and Australia, as well as distribution centers in the Americas, the merger has made it possible to design, manufacture and distribute products in the United States and overseas. The vision of providing more party for less has made Party City the largest specialty party retailer and premiere Halloween destination in North America.

 

History

Party City opened its first store in East Hanover, NJ in 1986 with the goal of creating a one-stop party supply shop that helps anyone hosting a party do so with ease. After two years of operation, Party City began sharing its successful business model with entrepreneurs and opened its first franchise store in Hazlet, NJ in 1989. Party City ventured outside the Northeast in 1992 and opened stores in Georgia and Tennessee. Quickly thereafter, Party City became a nationwide chain with store locations ranging from Hawaii to Puerto Rico.

Between 2005 and 2007, Party City experienced several company milestones that transformed the retailer into a true industry leader. In 2005, the company was acquired by Amscan Holdings, Inc., effectively combining the largest retailer of party goods with the leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of party supplies, as well as the world’s largest manufacturer of foil balloons. 

The incredible synergy between Amscan and Party City enabled the retailer to tailor its broad merchandise offerings and provide an incredible assortment of seasonal and everyday party supplies. With the acquisition of Party America in 2006 and Factory Card and Party Outlet in 2007, Party City became the largest party goods retailer in America.

Recently, Party City has made substantial investments to enhance the customer’s in-store experience and become the ultimate retail destination. Stores now showcase dynamic balloon counters displaying hundreds of balloons to match any licensed character or occasion. Additionally, store-within-a-store concepts for sports, candy and party favors are focal points in all new stores. Aptly named "Sports City," “Candy City" and “Favor City,” these specialty areas literally bring whirlypops, bubblegum, and favors to life.

Today, Party City operates more than 750 stores nationwide. The retailerʼs 12,000 square-foot party super centers offer the broadest assortment of merchandise at incredible values, and Party City is now well positioned to continue leading the party industry.
