Party supplier and wholesaler update

While many suppliers and wholesalers have temporarily shut down production, others have been continuing to operate on an ‘as needed’ basis. As such, has collated the current operational status and contact details of a wide range of party and costume businesses.

While parties and celebrations are currently being scaled back dramatically and taking place at home, they are still happening – and of course fancy dress is being used to add a bit of colour to all sorts of mundane activities, from taking business conference calls to putting the bins out.

The following supplier list, which includes current contact details and information as well as the operational status of the business itself, will be updated on a rolling basis, providing a ongoing resource for retailers and other customers to see who is open for business.
