RANDOLPH TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Just like Toys R Us, sadly the famous Party City is subject to close.
While no specific date has been released, a company spokesperson said that the Route 10 location is set to close sometime in January.
The party store chain claims a shortage of helium negatively impacted their Halloween sales this year. According to a press release on their website, James M. Harrison, Chief Executive Officer said, “While our Halloween performance was soft in stores, our digital business, which includes Buy Online Pick-Up In Store and marketplace, showed strong growth.”
Despite the Randolph location closing its doors, the company says they’re taking a closer look at the unsuccessful Halloween season, and hope to make improvements to their additional locations in the future.
Party City’s website says so far, 34 stores have closed this year as of September 30, 2019. However the closures don’t end there.
By the end of the 2019 fiscal year, 55 Party City stores will be closed.
The company owns 900 stores, including their Halloween City stores.
