Rockford's PartyLand is Closing

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It’s been a Stateline staple for more than 50 years, but now PartyLand Inc. is going out of business.

Lucy Christensen owns and runs the business with her husband Bruce. PartyLand was opened by Christensen's mom and she says it's been a lot of fun working with the Stateline over the last few decades. The couple has decided to retire, but says competition from national chains has slowed business. Christensen says she'll especially miss helping out around Halloween and Christmas times.

He saidm "Well, we've enjoyed helping everybody plan their fun parties and we've met a lot of wonderful people and we sure thank them for all their support."

The party supply store hasn't set an official closing date, but most of its merchandise is being marked down this week.
