NEVER NEVER SPEND YOUR MONEY AT THIS STORE!!! I have had bad experiences here before with rude cashiers and completely over-priced decorations and obscene hidden charges on rentals but because the location is convenient I very stupidly went back there again today. I went to by a king's crown for my son's birthday of which they had two sizes. I chose the larger one because the small one didn't look big enough. Unfortunately it was too big. I went back to exchange it, still in the plastic only having been bought a few hours before and the most ugly and rude woman, KELLY, would not exchange it. The receipt, mind you, says nothing about their unwillingness to exchange and NOT ONE PERSON mentioned that to me when I bought it. My son has been asking for this and his birthday is tomorrow. SO THANKS FOR NOTHING BLAKE'S!! NO WONDER WHY YOUR PATHETIC LITTLE STORE IS ALWAYS EMPTY. I am a person who throws huge parties, spending hundreds of dollars but guess what???? PARTY CITY HERE I COME!! BLAKE'S WILL NEVER SEE ONE RED CENT FROM MY WALLET AGAIN!!!

I have shopped at Blakes for my annual picnic of about 70 people for 17 years now. It's always been an easy in and out trip, I got everything I needed there. This year was different. I walked in and the employees were all gossiping with each other and although I didnt need any help, not one of them acknowledged me. This year I noticed the stock was down and I couldnt get the colors I prefered. I went to the register to ask for an item I'd never bought before and explained that I didnt know how it would be packaged or what it would look like, and she simply pointed to two aisles and told me what aisle numbers they would be on. Too busy gossiping to walk back there and point it out to me. I had already walked up and down all the aisles looking for them so that didnt set very well with me. It was obviously more important that she gossip with fellow employees. I finally found them. Then I went back to the register again to ask for a specific color paper plates and THREE of them were standing there gossiping. Mind you, from the time I walked in the store to the second question I had, it had probably been 30 minutes of them gossiping. I stood there for a minute and looking at them, obviously having a question, and it didnt phase them at all. I had to interupt them to ask my question. At that point, I was tired of walking up and down all the aisles looking for my items, then when I was finished and at the register, the young girl I had previously asked for help asked me if I found everything alright and I told her it was a bit difficult, and guess what??? Not another word was asked or said by her. So what exactly was the point in asking that question? Because she was trained to ask? What was she trained to do when someone had trouble??? Keep silent???? Offer to help?? NO NO NO NO NO. There was NO customer service there. After 17 years of shopping there, I will not be going back. There are other competitive choices in the area and I will now be going to Party City. In the past, I've stayed with Blake's because I prefer to support small business owners as oppose to large chains. However, I am also a customer spending time and money in the store. i will also no longer be recommending Blake's as I had in the past. There are a lot of hard working good people out there looking for jobs. Blakes is paying people to stand around, gossip and ignore customers. I hope the owner reads this review and cleans up.By chance that Blakes owner reads this and is interested, my visit was on Friday, June 4th, 2010, late morning to noonish.

Blake Paper is the first place I go when looking for party supplies. They have a very good selection, especially of seasonal items, as well as items for bridal and baby showers. Good prices too!

This store has a very large selection of party related goods. You can start by having them print out the invitations for your event, then choose the pieces for your party favors, then look for decorations and accessories for the big day! They also have gifts, gift cards, stationery, and seasonal decorations.

A great one stop store! They have all kinds of writing supplies, from specialty papers to normal cards, and printing services available for custom orders. Tons of sample books are on hand to choose from when making a custom order. The staff knows their business well and is able to help you find what you want. Very good prices.
