Party City closing 45 locations amid helium shortage

Local News

UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — It could get more difficult to throw a party with helium balloons.

Party City has announced plans to close 45 locations amid a global helium shortage.

The party supplies store did not say which stores would be affected, only that the closings would happen throughout the year.

There are currently 870 Party City stories in the U.S. and Canada, including the one on Erie Boulevard in the Marshalls Plaza and one at the Northern Lights Shopping Center.

The CEO of Party City says the closings will help them focus on more profitable locations.
