Warsaw Party Shop Announces Closure Due To Retirement

WARSAW — Established in 1978, The Party Shop has been serving the community for over 40 years. They take pride in offering a great selection of Hallmark cards and gifts in the area. But now, the team has decided to retire and the store is closing.
“Over the years you have generously allowed us to serve your card and gift needs,” said a press release announcing the closure. “We have sincerely enjoyed working with each and every one of you and we are grateful for the many wonderful friendships that have evolved.”
Starting on today, Jan. 14, storewide retirement sale begins with prices from 10 to 75 percent off. All inventory and fixtures will be sold.
Although this decision has been difficult, The Party Shop family would like to express their sincere gratitude for allowing them to serve Kosciusko county for over 40 years.
The Party Shop is located at 3418 Lake City Highway, Warsaw. They are open from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

OMG, will so miss going to the Hallmark museum! It was always a stop for us as we travel to visit relatives in Indiana. Best wishes to David and the rest of The Party Shop team.

So sad to hear this wonderful store is closing. I called to see if they had a few ornaments that I am missing from my collections, and my conversation with Dorothy was lovely. We had a wonderful chat! They are sending me a few pieces that they had!I am hoping someone buys the museum and keeps it going! If you are looking for some special ornaments, give them a call. They are very helpful!

My girlfriend and I visited this past Saturday. Their sale prices are slightly underwelming. 10% off cards. 20% off giftware. 75% off 2018 Keepsake ornaments. 50% off original box price of ornaments 1985-2018.

They do accept phone orders. They do give crown reward points. They do not accept any coupons or reward certificates. There is no official closing date. I am guessing it is whenever the lease runs out.

My girlfiend visited this location ten years ago. She commented how store was not as well lit as her previous visit. The lighting in the "museum" area did not do justice to the comprehensive ornament collection displayed in wood with glass covered cases mounted on the walls in the area where the older ornaments, Merry Minatures, and accessories were for sale.

I would urge potential visitors to call ahead to see if the discounts are higher if you are going to shop for current merchandise. The sale began January 14.

This strip mall appears to be in trouble. The K-mart was not busy at all Saturday afternoon and is the anchor store for this mall.

We visited the Edinburgh Outlet Mall and Teresa's Hallmark in Greenwood, IN (a two story marvel) and found a few items we purchased.

Mark's Hallmark, based in Louisville, KY is now down to one Gold Crown Store in Jefferson County. They abruptly closed their Oxmoor Mall store over the weekend after an apparent disagreement with mall management.

They have announced they will make sure all ornament orders are filled at their Gardiner Lane Shopping Center location. There will be some merging of store staffs over the next few weeks.

There are two corporate Gold Crown operations, two Ann's Gold Crown stores, the aforementioned Mark's, and one non-Gold Crown store in The Mall St. Matthews serving the largest city in the commonwealth.

And so it goes..... whistle

Kennedy's Hallmark Store in Lake City, Minnesota has been sold, and the new owners will not carry Hallmark products. Their last day is June 12th.
