If you were looking to purchase balloons for a particular occasion, or get balloons inflated, then you may have thought about going to your local Giant grocery store. However some grocery stores do not inflate balloons. So it’s good to check whether or not your store offers the service.
To figure out whether or not Giant blows up balloons, I contacted their customer service department directly and asked.
Does Giant Blow Up Balloons? Yes, Giant food stores blow up balloons for their customers. Customers can get balloons inflated at Giant for anywhere between $1 and $10. Customers can even bring their own balloons from home to get inflated at Giant.
How Much Does Giant Charge To Blow Up Balloons?
If you purchase a balloon at the end of the store, then Giant does not charge any additional fees to get it inflated. In other words, if you pay for the balloon, then it is free to get blown up.
Giant sells both Mylar and latex balloons. The prices vary, but generally they stay between $.99 and $15.
Will Giant Fill Up Balloons That Aren’t Purchased In The Store?
As mentioned above, Giant will also blow up any balloons that you bring in from home. This means that you do not necessarily have to purchase balloons in store.
So, if you have a ton of balloons sitting at home, you can get them blown up at any local Giant food store.
There is an additional cost however. If you don’t purchase the balloon in-store, then you do have to pay for the inflation service. Typically balloon inflation is included with the purchase of the balloon. However, because you brought the balloons in from home, then Giant will charge you to inflate the balloons.
Where Is The Balloon Section At Giant?
The balloon section at Giant is located within the floral department. The same employees who sell flowers are also the ones who blow up your balloons.
So, if you can navigate to the floor department, then you should have no problem finding where they blow up balloons.
Does Giant Sell Pre-Inflated Balloons?
If you don’t feel like waiting around for balloons to get inflated, Giant does sell pre-inflated balloons. So you can walk in and quickly make a purchase of a balloon without having to wait.
It should be noted that the selection for pre-inflated balloons is quite limited as there may only be around 10 pre-inflated balloons at a time to pick from.
