Start Your Own Party Store Business
Open a Party Supply Store or Rental Business

What could be more fun than opening a party store? As the owner of a party supply store you will have a career that is fun, creative and rewarding in so many ways. 

If you enjoy helping people have fun, the party store business is for you. When you open a party store (also known as a party supply store or party rental store), you will have the opportunity to make people happy every day as they celebrate special occasions. 

By opening a party store, you will join a multi-billion dollar industry. Even in tough economic times people want to make their special days memorable. In fact, a 2009 survey by Party & Paper Retailer found more than one-third of party store owners have plans to expand.

As a party store owner you will have the freedom to make your own decisions and express your own creative spirit through your store.

You might choose to open a party store offering a wide range of party items that appeal to many people. Or you could specialize in particular types of party supplies, or for particular types of people.

For example, you might choose to open a party store that specializes in selling costumes for Halloween, a business that offers bounce house rental and supplies for children's birthday parties, a store that offers party supplies for events from New Year's to Christmas, or a store that provides everything needed to plan a fabulous wedding.

When you start a party store business, you can choose to open either a party supply store or a party rental business:

Party supply stores buy items from the manufacturer or wholesaler to resell for a profit to local customers.

Party rental stores typically rent high quality party supplies and equipment which customers may need only once.

For example, you might sell inexpensive costumes but rent more elaborate costumes that cost hundreds of dollars. Or you might sell colorful paper products for parties, but rent beautiful dinnerware and other items for weddings.
If owning either a party supply store or a party rental store (or a store that offers both) sounds like the career of your dreams, the FabJob Guide to Become a Party Store Owner is for you! In this e-book you will discover how you can get started and succeed in the party supply or rental business.
