Carmel, California (PRWEB) September 01, 2012
September is "International Balloon Month" according to the IBA (International Balloon Association). What kind of a celebration will September bring, if balloons need helium to get off the ground?
Helium is in the news. There is currently a global shortage of this safe, non-flammable, non-toxic gas, making it difficult, if not impossible to obtain. Latex and Foil Balloons will be grounded without this precious gas.
The award-winning international balloon and accessory manufacturer/wholesaler, Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc. (Carmel, CA.), reports that several retailers that sell their Yankee Doodle Dandy® E-Z Balloon Kit® advise they still have a few portable, recyclable tanks of helium with colorful E-Z Safety Seal® latex balloons on hand for consumers who are planning parties and special events. This is good news for consumers.
Suzy Goodman-Pollack, Executive Vice President of the company, explains, "Many chains and small retail stores nationwide are now finding it challenging to get delivery of large tanks of helium to inflate their latex and foil balloons. Fortunately, individuals and families can purchase our popular and e-z to use E-Z Balloon Kit® that has helium in it (20 Balloons / 50 Balloons) from a variety of stores that have our product in stock. See our website http://www.ezballoonkit.com to find a retailer close to where you live or work. Don't wait until it's too late to buy what you need for your special event."
"Our accounts have been notified that future delivery of the E-Z Balloon Kit® will be on a first-come, first-served basis", advises Reagan Pollack, National Sales Manager. He continues, "We hope that supply of helium becomes more readily available over the next several months."
Check with some of these retailers to reserve your helium/balloon kit: AAFES, NEXCOM, Gordon Food Service, Mangelsen's, S&S Worldwide, Winn-Dixie Supermarkets, L.A. Balloons, Gayla Industries, Flora-Dec Sales, and SF Party.
