Army Veterans Open Second Balloon Squad Location In Columbiana Mall

Since starting this adventure four years ago, one thing The Balloon Squad co-owner and COO Sheila Fluker learned is that you never know what people are going through on the inside, and sometimes all it takes is a smile to change their day.

Impeccable product knowledge and amazing customer service are not all you get with The Balloon Squad.

Arrangements are also weighed and bagged as standard procedure without additional charge. And to help you save time in your day, delivery options are available.

Sheila said the colors, smiles and the ability to help others have a great day makes this work extremely gratifying. The couple running the show are both combat army veterans. “This business truly saved my life, not only giving me an outlet, but the opportunity to share a smile one balloon at a time,” said Sheila, who has suffered from PTSD, anxiety and depression due to her Iraq tours. “Owning and running a business is extremely hard physically, mentally and financially. But when you have people that say how happy their balloon arrangement made them or their loved ones, it makes it all worth it!”
