Paul AKA "The Party Krasher"
Coming from 17 years in the Dollar and Party industry, Paul was the “Vision guy” for Party Crashers. Paul came up with the visual concept and design for PC as well as the direction the store needed to go in with buying trends of today. He is a firm believer that if you offer continually changing products that are trendy and what people are looking for at the right price point, along with Top nothch customer service then success will come naturally. After years in the competitive dollar store market of Victoria changes needed to be made, something truly unique needed to be supplied. Party Crashers tries to always stay steps ahead of trends and is always on the lookout for the next big thing and the newest fads and crazes. Paul feels that Party Crashers is the optimum store for Greater Victoria and the Island because it suits the island style of life perfectly. “DJ PTK” loves that he gets to share his daily job with his father and amazing staff. Away from the shop “Par Tee” can be found DJing weddings or events around the Island as "DJ PTK", at the gym, in the roller/ice hockey arena or on the softball diamond. Paul is driven to succeed by his amazing wife Ashley and their daughter "Princess Londyn", an entrepreneur herself Ashley, owns and operates the highly successful Mint Hair Design salon in Duncan. Remember everyone, “Life is a Party……….CRASH IT!!!”
Dave AKA "Papa Dukes"
Dave is the token “warhorse” every successful business needs. The driving influence to succeed and the daily reminder that every big success story started from a simple thought. Dave comes from a long career with the Government working primarily in Agriculture and Horticulture. His first love is football…… ”English football” that is, or as we call it soccer. He follows his hometown team Barnsley religiously and out of boredom he monitors lower quality teams such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea just for fun. Dave's passion at Party Crashers is customer service and he loves to work mano-a-mano on projects with customers. Dave is very vocal in the “Shop Local” message and is a firm believer that when small local business work together everyone grows together. Away from the store Dave is a serial killer…… whoops wrong profile, meant to say he enjoys watching a variety of films spanning the last 80 years as well as supporting local coffee shops for a spot of tea and a flick through the newspaper. When Dave unwinds he heads off the grid to Thailand to enjoy sunny sky’s, soccer and a place where he’s considered a giant lol.
Lester AKA "Angry Old Man"
Les is the original Party Crashers supporter. Been angry and bitter at the world since he turned 70 and that was 15 years ago. If you are ever feeling down in the dumps drop by Party Crashers and speak to Les… you will feel better about your life immediately. In all honesty if you ever see this great guy around West Shore say hi, he’s awesome. He had to be included! He’s currently scouting Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia for a possible Party Crashers location for our next Party & Dollar Superstore!!! One reason for Les' possible depression is that Manchester United is currently struggling and rather than call upon him for advice they chose Mr. Bean!
Brea AKA "Breazy"
The stores merchandising "GURU" at Millstream. Brea is a bundle of energy........how much you ask? Give the Energizer Bunny a 6 pack or redbull and let it go!!! hahahahaha
Larissa AKA "The Goddess of Balloons"

Taylor AKA "Tay-Tay"
The resident Princess.................that 100% doesn't take guff from the boys. Taylor is mature beyond her years, Reliable and a key to our sucess!!! Always willing to help out at events, there to lend a hand to cover a colleague and as cool as they come under pressure. Taylor is a pleasure to have on our team.

She has the gift of turning anyones day into a good one. The owner of Mint Hair Salon, Ashley has carved out a career based on outstanding customer service and spreading her infectious smile. A balloon bouquet put together by Ashley is EPIC!!!
Caitlyn AKA "Tough Love"
Caitlyn is our "jack of all trades" , a wizard with balloons and a pricing gun she can handle it all. Besties with Taylor these 2 gems are our Friday night "Dream Team". Away from PC Caitlyn can be found slide tackling strikers or blasting 40 yard crosses across the box to her teammates on the pitch.
Madison AKA "Harley Quinn"
Madison is our resident Sweetie in a borderline psychotic way :) A crazy cat person which doesn't normally hit its potential in weirdness until age 50 and living at home as a spinstress hahahaha Madi is the life of the party around PC and battles Taylor for the "PC Princess Tiara". Born without a filter , we consider actually renting out Madison to make peoples parties that much better. She is actually the only staff member in history to see the mascot costume and emphatically say "When do I get to put that on and dance on Millstream Road!!!!!"
