Jerri, the manager at Brookside Party Warehouse, said her favorite part about Brookside is the community. "I live here, I work here, I know the community and everyone knows us."
Brookside Party Warehouse has two floors of party goods, with an entire attic full of costumes. Their costume selection is usually raided during Halloween, but Jerri said that it keeps surprisingly busy. “People have school events and other parties that they get costumes for,” she said.
Jerri’s selection includes everything from superheroes to princesses to accessories like masquerade masks. “We’re unique in that we offer a costume store year round,” Jerri said. “People will pick up costumes for American Hero Day at school, or we just had a group in here picking out stuff for a swim team theme party.”
Of course, if you've thrown any party, you've probably gotten some party planning help from Jerri herself, the queen of parties. If not, just ask!
Another great thing about working in Brookside is the walkability," Jerri said. "Everything you need is in walking distance, and the atmosphere is so homey.”
