Anything and everything that one could possibly want for decorating, gift-giving, themed parties and so much more is all under one convenient roof.

Brent Tracy, Party City district manager, along with Citrus Heights Party City store manager, Lewis Inouye, and their full new staff were all busy opening boxes and stacking shelves when Citrus Heights Messenger stopped by on the 22nd. When Brent Tracy and Lewis Inouye were asked how they would sum up the Party City experience, Tracy proclaimed that “Party City is your one stop party shop.” Then Lewis reiterated the company’s slogan; “Nobody Has More Party for Less," and I believe that most shoppers would agree.
