From balloons and candles to themed party accessories — Boswell's had it all. In fact, if you ever needed a life-sized cardboard cutout of Marilyn Monroe or a pirate costume, the popular party supply store was the place to go.
But after 27 years in business, Boswell's Discount Party Supplies, at 5759 Pacheco Boulevard, closed its doors for business Monday, July 9.
The store announced that it had to give up it's Pacheco location due to a lease disagreement. Some staff members were invited to work at the Danville, Lafayette and Pleasanton stores, according to a Boswell's clerk.
From the business:

We tried to negotiate a new lease but were not able to come to agreement.
