Paper Plus revealed its new name, The Party Store by Paper Plus, at its new location, 1344 Wesel Blvd., Hagerstown, in the Noland building next to Red Barron Flooring on Jan. 1.

A locally owned business for more than 25 years, owner Connie Leach gave Paper Plus a fresh look with a new name and logo that emphasized the store's full array of party supplies and services.

"We wanted to simplify our name to state exactly what we do best — parties," Leach said. "We've expanded our services and products to include full party planning, rentals, balloon art and custom bows, as well as more unique party decorations, favors and supplies."

Adding to the new look, The Party Store by Paper Plus recently moved into the Noland building off Wesel Boulevard. With more than 6,400 square feet, the retail store is more open and spacious with huge windows and high ceilings.

The new location is closer to the Valley Mall and Wesel Boulevard shopping area.

"Our new location offers easier parking and is closer to where our customers already shop," Leach said.

A new feature the store offers is an on-site party room.

"We are very excited to better serve our customers with our new location and new services," she said.

In addition, Dreamweaver Photography will open its Hagerstown studio inside The Party Store by Paper Plus.
