Halloween capital of the world
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) March 31, 2008
BuyCostumes.com, the world's largest Internet-based retailer of costumes and party supplies, begins operating out of its new 360,000 sq. ft. facility today.
The facility, which was developed by Willow Tree Development, LLC. and built by Berghammer Corporation is a LEED certified "green" building and was designed specifically for BuySeasons, Inc., operator of BuyCostumes.com, the world's largest Internet-based Party and Halloween Company. The new facility is located at 5915 S. Moorland Road in New Berlin Wisconsin.
"Who knew more Americans get their Halloween costumes from New Berlin, Wisconsin, than any other city in America?! We are very pleased to have such a great technology company in our community," commented New Berlin Mayor Jack Chiovatero. BuyCostumes.com expects to ship more than 1,000,000 costumes this Halloween, making New Berlin the "Halloween capital of the world," according to Jalem Getz, the company's CEO.
Given their rapid growth and focus on Halloween, the company expects to employ 1,000 people this fall. BuyCostumes.com is an excellent place for families, college students and even local charities looking for supplemental income during the current difficult economic times. While many of our employees are full time, there has been a growing trend over the past few years for people looking for a 3-6 month financial boost. Many of BuySeasons seasonal employees have full time jobs with other companies but come back year after year, due partially to the flexible work schedules and fun environment. "It's a win-win for BuyCostumes.com and the community of New Berlin. We need great employees and the community of New Berlin and surrounding areas need good jobs," commented Daniel Haight, the company's Chief Operating Officer.
