I am the Marketing Director for my five-year old’s business The BalloonZ Shop, which opened its first storefront at the end of 2018 in North Raleigh. My daughter, Summer Skye, would watch me run my party planning business and eventually expressed interest in opening her own balloon business. The BalloonZ Shop was born and provides party supplies of all kinds, but especially balloons. Our goal is to provide the finest and most exceptional party supplies so that you can have a fun time at parties.
What does this community mean to you/How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
Community is everything to me. I believe that together we stand and grow, but apart we fail and fall. I have great appreciation for my community and all of the local businesses and friends who show so much support for The BalloonZ Shop.
