Worcester Shop To Close After 20 Years

Worcester Shop To Close After 20 Years

Twenty years ago three sisters set out to provide the town of Worcester with an independent store offering a friendly, inspirational, on trend and exciting pre party experience. We have thoroughly enjoyed helping every one of you to create costumes to fit your themed occasions as well as balloon and party decorations ranging from classic birthday designs for your homes and restaurants to grand statements at weddings and superb corporate displays for themed party nights and special promotions.

Over this time we have traded in Worcester, Redditch, Cheltenham and Gloucester as well as online. We have witnessed the introduction of off the shelf costumes to the high street and watched as its popularity overtook that of hire costumes – we have also seen the resurgence of the hire costume world for those that prefer quality with all the extra’s – wigs and accessories included for a lesser price alongside the appreciation of the environmentalists that favour recycling with no need for extra packaging.  We have seen the comedy and novelty gift market trends change due to new healthier living – when was the last time your saw comedy lighters and ashtrays? And we have seen the balloon industry launching range after range of exciting new decorating ideas like bio degradable confetti balloons and giant 3 foot balloons for special occasions.  Our favourite new theme is personalisation – we now have the technology to print banners and sashes while you wait and put any messages to suit your celebration onto feather filled balloons for beautiful gifts and displays.

So, it is with a very sad hearts that due to a consistent rise in business overheads and the inevitable change of consumer behaviour with the rise of online buying that we will be saying goodbye and closing the door to our much loved store and in Angel Place, Worcester on 10thMarch 2019. 

However, all is not lost… We are looking forward to expanding all aspects of the business both online and instore with on trend fancy dress, unique DIY balloon decorating packages, stunning personalised gifts and by offering even more personalised and unique balloon decorating displays for delivery to your door or chosen venue! Plus we aim to be back with a pop up shop at Halloween – many of our customers favourite time of the year!

If you enjoy a good wander around the shops though and don’t mind a quick journey only 3 junctions down the motorway, you will still be able to visit us at our spearhead store in Cheltenham where all the ranges you know and love will still be available.

We very much hope you will stay in touch and should you want to be included in all of our regular updates including what’s on blogs, inspirational ideas for trending party themes, competitions and promotions, we will be running them through our website, just pop online and sign up for our newsletters and you wont be left out of the loop!

We hope you will remember us as fondly as we will remember you! Thank you for your custom.

Keep on partying… its what memories are made of!
