Start A Party Supply Store

If you love fun activities and helping other people enjoy their parties, starting a party store in your neighborhood can be a rewarding and profitable business.

Party stores sell balloons, decorations, costumes, novelties, confectionaries, theme party wear, and other party supplies.
