Balloons gone forever?

If you’re like most people, you don’t think about helium at all until you want to get some balloons inflated for a party. Here at Pizazz! Florals and Balloons it’s something we think about on a daily basis.

Currently, there is a helium shortage throughout North America. It is making it more difficult and more expensive for retail shops to get tanks of helium for balloons.

Helium is used to cool MRI machines and other medical equipment so they definitely take priority over balloon and party business. Luckily, we have a contract with our helium supplier so our price stays fair and we generally are able to buy tanks of helium. But as the next 5 years go on helium will be extracted from the earth until it’s gone.

For a business like ours, that can be a concern, but for the next few years, the party will continue!
