About us

Our story

For over 17 years now Party Town has been proud to serve the people, students and visitors of Sheffield.

At first glance the shop may have changed little apart from moving the counter a few years ago, but in other ways it has changed quite a lot. In the early days, Halloween was almost non existent with the busiest times being Christmas and New Year, these are still very busy times but it is Halloween when there will be queues out of the door.

When we first opened most people chose to hire costumes as they were quite expensive to buy however more recently due to better quality costumes available at more affordable prices there has been a major shift away from hiring with more customers particularly students opting to buy their own, possibly because they may not last the night! We still do have an extensive range of hire costumes from gangsters to gorillas, superheroes to Scooby Doo and many more outfits.

Balloons have always been an important part of our business and something that we never tire of. We can helium fill balloons for you to take away or deliver them for a small charge, just ask. Over the years we have delivered balloons to hundreds of occasions including birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, school and corporate events. We really do love balloons and believe that they improve any kind of function be it with just a small table decoration or a large floor standing glitzy foil arrangement or even spiral columns and arches they can not fail to put a smile on everyone’s face.

We have constantly improved the range and quality of goods we stock so whatever the occasion, whatever the theme, whatever your fantasy, we will do our very best to turn it into a reality. If there is something you have in mind that you can not see in the shop we can almost certainly get it for you, almost anything can be ordered in given just a few days notice. We deal with all the major suppliers for fancy dress and party goods and we are always happy to discuss your requirements and can offer bulk discounts for large events.

If you’re unsure about anything please ask because the one thing that has not changed over the years is the enthusiasm and dedication of our staff who always try to give an excellent standard of customer service to make sure you have a great time.
