Kerri and Amanda met while working together at the local hospital. They became friends instantly, and enjoyed working with each other to provide excellent care for every patient they encountered. They worked together so well that most of the time, they could go into a patient’s room and complete an exam, each doing things to help the other without even talking to each other. It’s like they knew what each other were thinking. When March of 2020 rolled around, Amanda and Kerri’s hearts grew heavy with the unknown that the world was facing. Day in and day out, they were taking home the heaviness that they had encountered by working with extremely sick patients at the hospital. That’s when they began brainstorming ways to continue to help people, but in times of happiness and fun rather than times of sickness and grief. Many times they said, “Let’s open a party store!” It started as a joke between Amanda and Kerri, but soon became reality.
Why a party store? Amanda worked at Party Impressions while she was in college and worked her way up to Assistant Manager and Kerri used to shop there all the time. Amanda’s previous experience along with Kerri’s background in business management paved the way for them to take the plunge to become business partners. Kerri and Amanda purchased the business from the previous owner in September 2020 and haven’t looked back since.
