I am disgusted with Party City's return policy. 30 days really???? No other store gives a 30 day return policy when you have unopened items and the receipt!!! Signs on the back of the registers state that returns can be made for full refund with receipt..... nothing about the CADDY way they put a 30 day statement on their receipt. I would have settled for a store credit. I purchased birthday items for my grandson's First birthday party. Of course I put them away for safe keeping until his birthday. Of course I forgot that I purchased the items until after his party. I went to return the items today and was told to reference the 30 day return statement on the receipt. Listen my grandson Will Only Be One Once!!! How ridiculous. I will not be shopping at this Leominster, Ma store or any other Party City store again. Thank you.

I am very upset and probably will never order online through this company any longer...I paid additional shipping fees to receive my products next day air sod have time to make sure everything fit and I got the product 6 days later...and guess what? Nothing fit and it was too late to fix it at that point! I will be returning my order and I better get my 105.00$ refund back immediately!

Attempted to exchange a damaged item. Was told no because it was 1)opened, how else would I find out it was damaged if I didn't open it 2)no return on leggings where does it say that on the policy???

I purchased over $200 worth online and needed to return an unopened item. I went into the store with my emailed itemized receipt only to find out they won't accept that. They wanted to shipping paper!? They had no idea how I was supposed to return this item and I even said I would take store credit! Won't be shopping here again and will spread the word TEEEIBLE SERVICE! My emailed receipt with sku numbers should have been enough.

i will never order anything again from party city. I couldnt even speak to a live person when i tried to call. My order was just over thirty days old, however, it was a christmas gift and i didnt know i was going to have to return it .. I would have done so if i could have. Now i am stuck with something I do not want and cannot use. You need to be a little more flexible with your return policy. Never again. I assure you of that.

I bought a table cloth at party city at the Whitestone location, it was too big for my table. They said it is not returnable because I opened it. However I have only opened the bottom of the bag, everything else is in the original shape. Need to be more flexible on their return policy. Now I have a table cloth cost me 7.99 which I have no use of it.

I went to return a Christmas sweater today, December 14th, more than 10 days before Christmas. But because I did not have my receipt, I was told by staff that they could not look it up by the attached tag and my credit card. The guy literally asked what date did I purchase it and he would try to look it up by the date. Seriously!!!!! Upgrade your system!!!!

I've tried to exchange things that my husband bought from party city. They wouldn't let me without the receipt. I understand not doing a refund but exchange???? Come on. And I don't know if it's a race thing but the costumer that was in front of me was a Spanish lady and the got to exchange her stuff without a receipt with no problems.
