The Party Shop Emporium is located in Gainesville, GA at 300 Pearl Nix Parkway. The Party Shop has been owned and operated by the same family since 1982 and has served the Gainesville -Hall County area over 34 years. It is one of the oldest family owned Party retail stores in the Southeastern United States.
Founded in 1982 by Paul and LaTrelle Clark. The business started out as a small 1200 sq. foot card and gift store. The departments increased along with the retail foot print. They began to sell wedding and bridal gifts, cake supplies along with balloons and party supplies and eventually began to rent costumes.
After renting costumes successfully within the community, they made the leap into a full blown costume and theatrical supply store and became the first Halloween retail store in all of North Georgia.
Now over three decades later the card and gift store has transformed into a Unique Celebration Emporium. Party Shop now has 15 years of Tuxedo Renting experience and stocks over 3,400 SKU items including Cake Decorating and Candy Making Supplies, Costumes, Wigs, Contact Lenses, Make-up and Accessories, Bridal Invitations and Wedding Supplies, Balloons, Party Supplies and Decorations, Gags and Tricks, Piñatas, Catering Supplies and Much more.
In 2014 the founders passed the torch to the second generation of owners Neil and Chelsea Clark. The new owners continue to serve the local community but now also serve the entire United States. In 2010 they began shipping orders all over the USA and in 2015 they began shipping merchandise to the entire global community.
Today Party Shop sends out thousands of packages each year in a very large variety of products and merchandise.
