Three years after opening, Party Zone Supply Store at Moonridge Plaza near 29th and Tyler is closing.

“In a nutshell, we underestimated the space,” says Imran Manzoor, whose parents own the center.

The store is almost 2,800 square feet.

“It requires a lot more space,” Manzoor says.

For instance, there’s not room to keep Halloween costumes out year round, but customers often want costumes other times of the year.

Also, Manzoor says there are so many themes for parties, it’s hard to stock them all.

“There’s such a broad spectrum.”

Manzoor says his family likely will lease the space to another business instead of opening another business of its own.

Party Zone will close sometime around the end of the year, but there’s not a set closing date yet.
