Party America in Great Falls, located near Albertsons at 25 14th Avenue NW, announced on Sunday that they are closing, as the owners have decided to retire.

The expected last day of operation is May 26.

Party America offers supplies for all types of celebrations including birthday parties, weddings, baby and bridal showers, and more. The store also has balloons, costumes, cards, and other event materials.

The future of the location has already been determined, as Benefis Health System plans to open a medical facility in the space.

Benefis opened a walk-in clinic nearby several years ago, and plans to move and expand into the new location.

Kathy Hill, the chief operating officer for Benefis Medical Group, said In a press release:   

Benefis first established its Walk-In Express location on the northwest side of Great Falls in January 2016 and has since experienced increased demand for services in that area.

We are quickly outgrowing our current Benefis Walk-In Express space and have been looking for a new building to expand our service offering in Northwest Great Falls.  In addition to expanding Walk-In Express, we plan to add primary care services, including Family Practice and Pediatrics, as well as basic x-ray capabilities, to increase convenience for those living on the northwest side of Great Falls.

Renovations on the Party America building will start this summer.  We expect that construction to be complete in 2019. Until then, Benefis Walk-In Express will remain fully functional at its current location at 1520 3rd Street NW.
