About Us

We are a family run business based in Kirkcaldy, Fife (near Edinburgh) with our new store situated in The Mercat Shopping Centre in Kirkcaldy High Street. Covering Fife & surrounding areas, such as Glenrothes & Dunfermline, we also have visitors from as far as Dundee & Edinburgh to have a look at our range & try our outfits on. With our online website, we cover the whole of the UK including all of the major cities such as Aberdeen, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, London. All our costumes are at great low prices without being cheap on quality, and if you're stuck for ideas, our staff will be happy to help you pick out a costume for your party.

Originally a fancy dress & joke shop, we are now starting to expand our range to become an all round party shop. Along with our traditional fancy dress costumes, we currenty provide printing services for Stag & Hen t-shirts as well as printing on many other types of clothing. Our printing facilities also enable us to custom print various other items such as mugs, iphone covers, mousemats, jigsaws & bags which are perfect for gifts. Look out for our new items coming soon such as fireworks, party games, magic tricks and many more.

Chickenshop's history

Chickenshop's humble beginnings started life in 1996 from a small shop on Kirkcaldy High Street and called itself 'The Joke Factory'. Quickly it became a popular place in town and word started to spread. Soon after starting, the shop took the step of getting an online presence on the World Wide Web and became such a big hit, that in 1999 it took a life of its own, changed name to The Chickenshop and branched out into the big world of on-line retailing, where we were one of the first fancy dress companies to create a fully e-commerce site and became one of Scotland's largest fancy dress companies.

Then in June 2008, when space was far too small, we moved further along the High Street to a bigger store so that we could fit our ever expanding range of costumes & accessories and also start our new venture of party balloon decoration for Weddings & Birthdays.

The following year, we added to our party services again when we invested in some printing equipment to enable us to provide personalised t-shirts for the ever popular Stag & Hen Parties. And just recently, along with being able to print any design on all clothing, we bought some new equipment to produce personalised mugs, jig-saws, keyrings, mousemats... well, pretty much anything you could want.

Then in April 2011, The Chickenshop reached another milestone when new owners took over, hoping to inject a new lease of life to such a long standing name in the fancy dress world.

So as of August 2011, our new website was born! We hope you'll like it. Not only do we hope to have a fun & friendly company, we also aim to be as competitive as we can in providing value for money to our customers to go hand in hand with our personal service. So if you're in town, or on the lookout for something for your party, why not come down to our shop where you can see a wide range of costumes and party supplies. You can take full use of our changing facilities and see what costume is right for you. Our staff are always happy to help and often come up with helpful advice in costumes and party suggestions! And for anyone looking for balloons, we have expertly trained designers that will show you things you never thought possible! We can even put gifts inside balloons!
