Party Central In Sidney Renting Tuxedos Just In Time For Prom

In just a few short weeks, prom will be coming for high schools around the region. Nice dresses can be hard to find but tuxedos can be near impossible in the MonDak.

The solution in Sidney and the surrounding area is Party Central and Main Street Popcorn Factory. Dana Moos has been providing Sidney with tuxedos since 2001 when she was in the basement of the Yellowstone Merc building. In 2006, Dana and her late husband, Eldon Moos, bought Party Central and moved it to its current location on East Main. Now, daughter Cassandra Moos helps her mother with the business as the assistant manager. Through Jim's Formal Wear, Party Central can offer shirts, ties, bowties, vests, jackets, pants, socks, shoes, a full suit, or partial for all occasions for rent or sale.

Party Central offers great rental options for proms and weddings. Dana or Cassandra will assist them in selecting the suit they need. They help guide customers according to their budget. They will also get to match their tie and vest choices with actual fabric swatches, so if the girl's dress is available, please bring it down so they can best match the color. "We like to match the guys to their girls. We want them to complement their dates but still have their own identity," Cassandra said. Another part of the process of renting or ordering a tux is getting measured while at the store. They are professionally trained to take the right measurements needed so that their suits will fit their body type and build. Students need to come in 5-6 weeks before their event to make sure they get their suits or tuxedos ordered to arrive on time and to receive any potential discounts. Dana added, "We love it when dads bring their sons to get fitted for a tuxedo. It's the most precious thing when dads see their son as a young man for the first time. You can't replace that." Part of the rental or purchase package includes a fitting in the evening the week of the event. Cassandra admitted, "We love what we do." "We even have destination packages for those boys who need their suits for two weekends in a row," Dana mentioned.

Party Central is located at 105 East Main. They are open year-round Tuesday-Thursday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Fridays 10 a.m.- 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m.- 3 p.m. Call 406-433-4386 to contact them or follow them on Facebook.
