Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Robbie's Pack family entertainment
Why did you start your business?
Robbie's Pack family entertainment started over 20 years ago when folks asked me, Robbie Pack, owner and talent of Robbie's Pack, if I could work at their event or birthday party. They asked after they saw me as a part of at Stamford Hospital's clown care unit or the Barnum Festival Great Street Parade and/or Road Show. It grew from there as I added professional level face painting, balloons, silly clown magic, mica temporary tattoos, pregnant belly painting, bubbles and many more ways to bring joy. I absolutely love making your event extra-special whether it's for children, families, ladies groups, special needs populations, or seniors.
What is your best selling product/service?
Full face painting usually wins my tally of the most popular services offered each year, but balloons or silly magic are usually close seconds. However, when Robbie is asked about special interests like preschool hands-on music, balloon games, interacting with seniors or a hospital visit, a special theme or even teaching basic balloon twisting or the types of clowns, I have the experience to be able to supply those as well.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
I serve all local businesses when they want to draw a crowd, celebrate an anniversary, or promote a special campaign. I am at Staples often picking up printed materials, Hobby Town for unique props, plus Party City for tablecloths and theme ideas, Fed Ex and Fairfield U Bookstore for special stickers, as well as many others like Giant Steps or Saugatuck Sweets for party favor information as parents often ask me for input.
