I need lots of balloons for a birthday party.Where can I get them blown up for cheap? I am talking about simple latex ones and I want them to be under a dollar per balloon. I don't have a party city location nearby. I asked at a dollar tree and they said they did not take orders.
Any suggestions will be appreciated. I am in west cary.
Thanks!

It's been a LONG time since I was part of the toddler birthday set, but don't grocery stores still do this? I always got mine done at the closest grocery store which happened to be a Kroger.

At Party City you can buy a disposable kit for 50 latex balloons: includes helium tank, balloons and ribbons - for $34.99. I found a coupon online and saved another %15. You have to do the work yourself but I found it to be very easy. Good luck!

We bought balloons at Rite Aid last year and they blew them up for us. Unfortunately they'd been sitting on the shelf so long it was hard to keep them from popping as they were blown up....but that RiteAid went out of business and maybe another store would have better luck.

This is what we do. and we find the helium tank usually lasts us awhile so we make other events 'holidays'! if you really are going to use 50 or want more, than you want to have more than one tank.

My local Target has a 30 balloon version of the same kit for $19.99. Perhaps the OP has a Target closer. That's what we always do too.
