The Balloon Stop opened in early 2010. Opening a retail shop that specializes in balloons was a bit of a strange concept. The idea struck while curiously watching happy customers load helium balloons into their cars. Half the time the balloons slipped out of their fingers and flew into the distant sky, never to be seen again. We knew we had to do something about this, opening a balloon shop that delivers helium balloons to customers’ homes was the answer and so the journey of The Balloon Stop began.
Nine years ago, balloons were not as popular as they are now, most people ordered helium balloons for birthday parties, baby showers, etc. Corporate companies generally only made use of the standard balloon arch or balloon pillars to create attention. Fast forward to 2021 and you are spoilt for choice, with so many options and designs available at your fingertips. Now there is talk of balloon garlands, organic balloon arches, foil letters / numbers, confetti balloons, bubble balloons, balloon sculptures, personalized balloons, only to name but a few.
