BUYSEASONS’ parent company, Liberty Media Corporation successfully completed the acquisition of Celebrate Express today. Celebrate Express will now be combined with BUYSEASONS, Inc. “This is a great day for our employees, our vendors and our customers,” commented Jalem Getz, BUYSEASONS’ CEO. “We have spent the last two months working with and getting to know Celebrate Express’ employees, and I would like to officially welcome them into the BUYSEASONS family and thank them for their dedication and hard work while we went through the acquisition process. Now that the transaction is complete we will begin working as a unified team to reenergize our fantastic retail brands”.
BUYSEASONS’ retail brand BuyCostumes.com has led the online market for costumes and Halloween products since 1999. Birthday Express has had similar success in the children’s birthday party supplies market since its inception in 1994, which BUYSEASONS intends to leverage. “We look forward to getting back to the key value proposition established by Mike and Jan Jewell, the founders of Celebrate Express; helping busy parents celebrate the special moments in their children’s lives,” Mr. Getz added.
