American Halloween and party retail group Party City will be focusing on online sales over the coming months as it temporarily closes its physical store portfolio.
The announcement came yesterday as the retailer announced it will close its retail locations across the United States in the short term as part of a concerted effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19, in line with the evolving guidance from federal and local health officials.
“As always, the well-being of our team members, customers and their communities remain of utmost importance to us,” commented ceo Brad Weston. “As a result of recent COVID-19 developments, we decided to close our corporate owned retail locations throughout the United States. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates at PartyCity.com and through our social channels.”
He continued: “Our website PartyCity.com will be fully operational to help our customers celebrate the moments that matter most – whether that’s a child completing a home-school project, creating a family movie night, or celebrating important birthdays and anniversaries in creative new ways during this unprecedented time.”
