Costumes, Costumes and More Costumes
What’s a small retail shop got that you can’t find with e-commerce or the big box store? Well, let’s start with one-on-one service. And we’ll add smiles for good measure, because what’s personal service without a smile? Card & Party Giant’s got personal service, bright smiles, a staff who know how to help customers, and an in-store inventory that surprises and delights shoppers. You see, Card & Party Giant is a family-owned and operated party supply store founded more than 25 years ago. Since 1989 Card & Party Giant has been serving its community with everything for entertainment, and especially party supplies and COSTUMES. The wearing of costumes has grown exponentially. If, like me, you grew up in the 1950’s you wore a costume for Halloween or Purim, or maybe both. Today, in addition to Halloween and Purim costumes, people find a host of reasons to don a colorful costume wig, mask, hat, or head-to-toe costume. From year’s beginning to year’s end, there are parties, events, and activities that invite disguises and adornments. A bar-crawl last February in Wrigleyville awarded prizes for best costumes! Headbands and boppers are worn with ears for Easter or shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. Mardi gras party goers adorn their attire with beads, masks, and hats. If you go to a Kentucky Derby party, you’re going to need a hat. Chicago Comic-Con Wizard World, Comic-Con (in its various locations), and Gen-Con in Indianapolis all encourage participants to wear costumes. Early September Marvel Universe LIVE! Comes to the United Center where we are sure to see a host of Marvel-themed costume-clad lads and lasses enter the gates before show time. There are websites dedicated to helping us learn how to dress up for Oktoberfest, and everyone knows that when it comes to Halloween, we can go crazy, wild, sexy, sweet, scary or just paint our faces with a little makeup to give us a different look. Bottom line folks, is that if you’re looking for a costume, be sure to check out Card & Party Giant where you will find not just pretty terrific party supplies but also a large inventory of costumes and costume supplies available all year long!
