So far based on what I know, Party City and other party stores will start to go out of business due to a shortage of helium. The main suppliers of helium are located in three states within the world, Qatar, Wyoming, and Texas. The big problem is as more helium is being made, the more difficult it has become to buy more shipments of this element to support party stores with balloons. The question I would want to know is can some party stores still afford helium? and how many other party stores would be affected by this shortage, and how many other party stores will begin to suffer the same shortage? most importantly will it affect the United States only or will it become a global issue?. many other people will want to know, now that there is a shortage in helium will Party City begin to lower their balloon pricing?. Most Party City stores in America are suffering from the helium shortage, but I believe my main focus would be around the New Jersey/ New York areas. Mostly because these areas are to be the next areas where the shortage may affect the United States. Henceforth the shortage had started in 2018 and is possible to escalate towards the future. Many of these closings were reported to be in Illinois, Connecticut, and Washington, but many of these closings are not claimed to be a bad thing to the managers to Party City. It is that the store is currently working on a new deal to establish a new contract towards getting a new source of Helium.
