(NEW BERLIN) -State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) and state Representative Mark Gundrum (R-New Berlin) congratulated New Berlin-based BuySeasons, the largest online retailer of costumes and party supplies that is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Heading in to its busiest season of the year, Halloween, BuySeasons can boast that it employs about 195 full-time associates, 60 part-time associates and 95 year-round seasonal associates. The Halloween period will result in additional jobs. Recently, BuySeasons hired its 2028th associate, and has created more jobs this year than ever before.
“BuySeasons is a fascinating story of an excellent Wisconsin company enjoying success during a downturn in the economy. The entire state can be proud of BuySeasons,” said Senator Lazich.
"BuySeasons is a wonderful success story that can serve as an inspirational model for Wisconsin’s business community during these challenging times," said Representative Gundrum.
BuySeasons Vice President David Karst believes the formula for success is simple. “We are proud of the work our staff does every day to ensure all of our customers receive fast and courteous service,” said Karst.
In an effort to help seasonal workers find year-round employment, BuySeasons has collaborated with other area business to form the Wisconsin Seasonal Workforce Coalition that provides services including resume writing and job interview assistance.
BuySeasons operates a state-of-the-art facility located at 5915 South Moorland Road, New Berlin, Wisconsin.
