Accessories retailer Party City Holdings Inc. cut the ribbon on its brand-new corporate headquarters in Woodcliff Lake Thursday.
As part of the celebration of Party City’s move into a 208,911-square-foot space at 100 Tice Blvd., company executives were joined by local officials and enjoyed a performance by the Pascack Hills High School marching band and cheerleaders.
In a statement, Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo said, “Woodcliff Lake takes great pride in its community. Providing a great quality of life for residents and consistently recognized as a top N.J. town. Today, we welcome our newest resident, Party City.”
Founded 36 years ago in East Hanover, Party City is the largest retailer of party goods in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It operates more than 900 company-owned and franchise outlets under the Party City, Halloween City, Toy City, Factory Card and Party Outlet brands.
Last fall, it became the first company to win an award under the Emerge Program, a $14.5 billion job creation package launched using funding from the New Jersey Economic Recovery Act of 2020. In accordance with the seven-year, $9.996 million tax credit approved by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA), Party City consolidated existing offices in Rockaway and Elmsford, N.Y., into one global headquarters in Woodcliff Lake.
When the NJEDA approved the subsidy award, officials said Party City would invest some $32 million as part of the relocation, create 357 new full-time jobs and retain 338 full time positions.
Party City joins BMW North America, PDI, McLauren Engineering and other leading companies headquartered in Woodcliff Lake.
