What a scam!!! I wished I had researched this company prior to my order. Placed an order for cake tops for my Grandson, placed my order 3/12/12 with priority shipping, they charged my credit card the next day, got their money and I got nothing! I have called and left messages numerous times, never reach a live person, only a recording stating that their "office hours are mon-fri 8:00am-4:00pm CST and if you have received this message during these hours then they are busy assisting other customers", busy ripping off customers would be more accurate!

I placed an order with this company on Jan 23,2010 and a second order on Jan 24, 2010. I recieved a confirmation email for the first one, a cacellation email for the second(with no explanation why it was cancelled) and they charged my credit card for both orders on Jan 24. Made numerous calls(only got a recording) sent 4 emails with no response, and finally sent an email telling them to cancel my whole order on Feb 3. On Feb 6 I received an email stating my order had been shipped,was en route but sent no tracking information. Called Visa, they took the charge off my creditcard, and was told to wait and see what they tried to do next. On Feb 22 I recieved a battered, used shipping envelope with 2 cheesy hawaiian plastic tablecloths and a bag of gaudy balloons, neither of which wereanything close to what I ordered. And the kicker is it came from a place called MyTown Party supplies--who are these people and why does PayPal even allow them to charge people's account?? They are scammers for sure. NEVER pay with anything but a credit card for online things----at least you have a dispute system to back you up for bogus charges.

FRAUD ALERT!!! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SO CALLED COMPANY!!! They will take your order, bill your credit card, but you will NOT receive the items you ordered! I have called and called and I just get a recording. I have emailed and no one returns the emails. I called my credit card company and Hometown did bill me right away. I have put in a complaint with the cc company.
If you place your order, don't expect to receive it!!

DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE!!!!! At best, they have HORRIBLE customer service; at worst, theyare scammers who take your money and run. Just got off phone with credit card company and got the charges credited back to my account after two weeks of no merchandise, 4 phone calls not returned and 4 emails ignored. Re- ordered merchandise from PartyCity.com and it has already been shipped(less than 24 hours later) There are excellent websites out there(i.e. PartyCity)but Hometowncelebrations is a joke. Everyone should call State Attorney General of Louisiana to complain.

I have disputed the charge with this company. I have not received the products I ordered and am not willing to pay for a product, with priority shipping, that I did not receive. Hometown Celebrations' failure to respond to my email or phone inquiries as to the status of my order is unprofessional and just plain rude. I will never order from your company again and will be sure to let others know how poor their service is.
The products I ordered are for a fundraising event for a non-profit organization and every penny spent counts! As a result of your company's poor service and the non-delivery of my order, I will be forced to purchase these cupcake decorations at a much higher cost which ultimately affects how much money is raised for this already needy organization. Just for the record, I am a volunteer for this organization and not getting any compensation for the time or effort I contribute. The organization was planning to reimburse me for the cost of the cupcake picks but I feel terrible to let them know that the cost I quoted them is actually going to be doubled simply because the company I ordered from has failed to deliver the product I paid for.
Like many others who has posted their review on this site, I usually do research before buying from an online company but it was late on a Saturday night so I didn't, that is a huge regret of mine.
I made it clear via phone and email that I needed the products I ordered by today, November 19th for a fundraising event. Today is the day of the event, and I've haven't received my order or any communication as to the status of my order. The only communication I received was in a form of an email that stated that my ordered was "shipped via UPS Priority". However, there wasn't a tracking number, which should have been a red flag, in body of the email. I waited a couple days for my order to arrive to no avail.
DO NOT buy anything with this company. The money you save isn't worth the frustration.

All reviews above are correct. Hometown Celebrations is definitely a hoax! I've called them numerous times and sent emails as well, but I got no reply. The products I ordered never arrived and I ended up having to delay our party. These guys deserve jail!

I wish l had read reviews on this site before ordering. I have called many times and emailed and they don't respond. I am out of pocket $96.00 and feel cheated. They took the money straight away and l am going to try and get my money back.

As other reviews have stated...this company is worthless and a scam. I ordered an item with priority shipping on July 20, 2010 and have not received anything. Not even a response to my phone messages. Now it is August 1st and I have disappointed a child expecting a birthday present.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!! I wish I had read these reviews prior to ordering from this company. I had been doing a lot of online ordering prior to my wedding without a problem. I ordered a cake topper from them for my rehearsal dinner. My credit card was charged that day. When I didn't get it in a reasonable time frame, I emailed their customer service. No response. Once the wedding madness had died down, I called them and left a message. No response. I put in a formal dispute with my credit card company and sent a registered letter to Hometown Celebrations. I just got credited but still no explanation for why I didn't receive the item or a response to any of my attempts to contact them.

Review by Sheakh10 years ago
This site is a SCAM!!!! Please do not make any purchases with them. I purchased several items online and did not receive my items until 4 weeks later, returned the items to them and never received a refund. I am working with my bank to determine if they can assist me; but I seriously think I won't get my money back.

Review by Veruka Kountouriotou10 years ago
Horrible experience!!! I wish I had read this website. I ordered my stuff almost four weeks ago and have not received any items. I left numerous messages by phone and e-mailed. They do not respond back. I finally received a response after filing complaint with PayPal. The response was we mailed it out and cannot guarantee when it will get there. I have had to go out and buy stuff from another store!!!
Review by Rotterdamsalsa Ober10 years ago
To whom it may concern:
Unfortunately the order placed on Jan 8th, 2010 and the money withdrawn from the bank on Jan. 9th, 2010 never made the promise date.
Your people promised priority shipping to be before the party date of Jan. 17, 2010 but the package that was received was not shipped until the 19th of January.
Extra Shipping was charged to customer but NOT RECEIVED ON TIME.
PRIORITY USUALLY SHIPS IN 3 BUSINESS DAYS --- NOT 8 TO 9 DAYS LATER.
Package was received on thurs. Jan 21... What an unfortunate situation, We had to run out Sunday 1/17 the Date of the party and purchase other BEE balloons from a local supermarket.
SUCH A HUGE INCONVENIENCE. SUCH A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT...
Phone calls were made & ignored by your company to try and locate this order.... ON TOP OF IF ALL THE ORDER HAS BEEN SENT BACK AT MY EXPENSE....I'M HOPING YOUR COMPANY WILL BE HONEST AND RETURN A REFUND TO ME...
NEVER AGAIN...!!!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

Placed an order on Jan 6, 2010. My credit card was charged on Jan 7th. I have called and sent emails to no avail...... I can not believe someone could be so dishonest. What a shame.
I agree with the other comments - NEVER order from this company.
Review by Aniwesh10 years ago
Don't think this company actually exists. Placed my order, they debited my account and I never received the order. Called 8 times, left messages and sent 6 e-mails. They have never replied. DON'T USE THIS COMPANY!!!
Review by Gumdrop10 years ago
In all my years of virtual shopping I have never been so frustrated! I ordered Shrek party supplies for my sons 5th birthday on February 22nd. I kept checking the order status and it never seemed to update showing "shipped". I started calling the company and sending e-mails. Not return call or response. After 5 days of calling, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and stopped payment on my credit card. This website is such as scam! Now I had to order through another website (since Shrek is no longer in stores) and pay $50 extra for shipping from Ottawa to get in time for our Saturday party. Shame on you Hometown Celebrations. I wish I could post something on their website -- "If you really want to disappoint your children -- shop here!!". Hometown Celebrations - you stink.
Review by Bafford Tibruski10 years ago
I placed a USD550 order and they charged me twice for that. I've been trying to call, I wrote emails, but didnt get any response... I'm afraid I won't be receiving the itens I bought, although I have paid twice as much for each one of it.

Don't use this company! They are scammers. I made a fairly large purchase, and returned it without opening it, and they kept the product and never refunded my money. They wouldn't return my calls or my emails... horrible.
Review by ILoveMyPets11 years ago
hometown celebrations left us in the gloom - We ordered products from her on Feb 16th it states shipping in 2-3 days. We have yet to receive it and the phone #s for the company have filled up voice mails, I also sent to the customer service website and no one responds.
