The Party City store in Williamsburg will be closing, but party hosts and planners still have some time to buy their supplies.

The store, 5225 Settlers Market Boulevard, will close in February 2020, the company confirmed through statement released by a public relations contact on behalf of Party City.

On Friday, the windows of the store featured yellow, red and black signs advertising an entire-store sale of 10 to 30 percent off and “NOTHING HELD BACK!”

“Party City routinely evaluates our portfolio of stores in response to ongoing consumer, market and economic changes that naturally arise in the business,” the company said in the statement. “After careful consideration, the Williamsburg, VA store location will close in February 2020.”

In May, Party City announced it would close 45 of its stores throughout the year. In August, Party City announced that number had risen to 55 stores.

The company declined to include information in its statement about whether the Williamsburg store’s closure was related to the 55 closures company-wide.

Party City will continue to sell its products in-store at the Newport News location, at 12134 Jefferson Ave.
