Party City Might Be Leaving Us, But the Memes Will Not Be Forgotten

It seemed impossible, but one of our joys in this world, the store where we killed time when we were bored, has filed for bankruptcy. Party City, where your parents got balloons and where you maybe looked for Halloween costumes, has finally met its defeat. For those unaware, Party City used to be the premiere spot for all your party planning needs. Wanted a banner for someone’s birthday that looked sort of weird but still got your point across? Go to Party City. Wanted the same Halloween costume everyone else had? Party City had you covered.

It was, for the most part, the place you went for any and all party necessities. But over the years, people got more creative with their parties and would turn to Etsy or use their own skills to make things. And then, when the Spirit Halloweens took over the spooky season, Party City felt like a distant beacon of parties past. But they still existed and operated year-round.
