Local Balloon Business will not let COVID beat it!
As well as life altering rules for the general population, 2020 brought about extremely tough times for commerce with an especially hard hit on the events industry. Since people were no longer allowed to socialise and meet in groups, have parties, celebrations etc., the opportunities to successfully operate a business in this area have vanished.
One such popular local company, For Every Occasion Balloon Artists Ltd, trading from premises in Rhyl for over 15 years, are a supplier of small and large scale extravagant balloon décor to Birthday parties, Christenings, Engagements, Weddings and many other celebrations. Servicing corporate customers including local holiday parks and hotels, TV companies and many large arena concerts, it is likely you will have seen their work on popular TV or social media. “On the 23rd March last year practically all business stopped overnight” Managing Director Mike Harris told us. “Since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, in order to comply with government guidelines our studio has been closed more than it has been open. With around 10% of our normal income remaining the cost of operating from such large premises was no longer in the best interests of our family business.”
Determined to survive in circumstances which show no immediate signs of improving Mike and his wife Sara, set to revitalising their business plan and came up with a means to turn around the future prospects of For Every Occasion Balloon Artists.
The development of a fully interactive online ordering system on their website allows for customers to order at-home décor, smaller but by no means less special or extravagant displays and then collect from the new business premises at their studio annexe in Abergele. Local delivery under government rules is also possible and ,in some cases, is free of charge.
“We are sad to be closing the bricks and mortar studio but this is the path we have to take to protect our business and our family” Mike explained. Sara Harris, Creative Director continued, “We value our customers so much, our regulars are like family to us as we have celebrated births to teens with some families. Our updated website is now second to none, but customers can still call us on our regular number to place orders too, if they are more comfortable with that.” she added.
For Every Occasion Balloon Artists are leaders in their field having world-wide recognition following success in global competitions. They have been proud to service the North Wales coast for over 15 years and are confident that this carefully planned new focus will ensure that they will continue to do so for many more years to come and offer a service you can trust fully.
