acm with one star is off - this is a community local community party store with a large selection, having shopped here lots over the years, and they are always pretty busy but friendly. I agree they should post standard hours, but they do change hours a lot to stay open later seasonally, which is great service.

First, let me echo the comments made by Brad B. below regarding the lack of any indication on the Diddam's website as to hours of operation. That is simply Web Marketing 101. Today, I called Diddam's in San Carlos three times (at approximately 2pm.) The first two times I let the phone ring about 25 times without anyone ever picking up the phone. I tried again about an hour later and on about the 30th ring, someone picked up. I asked if they carried a certain craft supply and she [the clerk] said "I don't think so," to which I replied "does that mean you do not carry it or that you do not know if you carry it?" Her response was "I don't think we carry it." She was then just going to hang up, but before she could, I asked her if she could please check to make sure they did (or did not) carry the item, and lo and behold, she came back on the line and said "yes, we have lots of them." So while I am thrilled that the store ended up having the item I needed, I was very disappointed with the lack of customer service. You would think in this economy, retail outlets would be training their clerks and sales people to do everything they can to bring in business, but the person I spoke was devoid of any motivation.

In addition to being a wonderful party store, Diddams has a large selection of educational and unusual toys that you don't find in your average toy store. Many of the toys they stock I've only seen in expensive catalogs. I should also mention that the prices are fairly reasonable - especially for an independent party store chain.

Everything you want under one roof. I stop by here at least twice whenever I am event planning or for parties for the kids. I get so many ideas just looking at what they have to offer.

Diddams Amazing Party is a great one-stop place for any party buying. We have ordered our wedding invitations here - everybody thought they were the best looking invites ever. We also bought party supplies for our kids parties here. Great store !!!!

First and foremost as I write this in September, they have good clearance deals after Halloween on costumes - think ahead and you can score - I got a padded Superman costume for my husband for $5!

But what it does well all year round is partyware (plates, cups, favors, etc.) for themed parties. But that's not all, it has an ample toy section so that you can pick up a birthday gift too. They have lots of Grossman's stickers for the sticker lover or scrapbooker, they fill balloons for your party and sell candy in bins. And their everyday prices seem reasonable.
