ST. EUSTATIUS–The Party Box opened its doors in the Suares residence at Heyligerweg in St. Eustatius on Sunday. Owner of the new party-supplies business is local teenager, entrepreneur and student Francesca Dembrook.
Her store offers a variety of party supplies, such as decorations, balloons, helium, piñata fillings and educational supplies.
Dembrook said she has always had an interest in being an entrepreneur. She said she has had the idea for her store since she was 16 years old and now it has become a reality.
One specialty item The Party Box offers is party bags. Dembrook said the party bags can be pre-made according to the customer’s wishes and are also sold separately so that clients can assemble them themselves, if they wish.
As to the logistics of receiving her supplies, Dembrook said this was “a process” to choose the right cargo shipper to ensure supplies would be reaching her as quickly as possible.
