Time seems to pass us by so fast these days and it was only recently when discussing future plans for our fireworks for sale range that we realised this will be our fifth year we are selling products from our shop for the Bonfire Night season. With the summer holidays now upon us, it won’t be long before the children return to school ready for the autumn term. For those organising a fundraising Bonfire Night event, the first meeting for the PTA’s will be to discuss November’s planning and arrangements.
Although it may seem a while off yet, busy companies will have been planning “The Season” for a while now. This is no different for Solihull Fireworks and we actually started working on our fireworks for sale orders way back in February. With the industry so unpredictable, ordering the correct level of stock for later on in the year can be tough decision to make and very important in getting it right. Order too much and your left with money tied up in stock for what could be the next six to twelve months, order too little and your popular items sell out and could potentially see your customers looking elsewhere for their favourite items!
Over the coming weeks, the preparation and hard work that went on back in the winter months will see the first of our fireworks for sale stocks arriving off the high seas from China. Busy days at the stores will follow and the new products gracing our shelves and cabinets at our firework shop shortly after, ready for our customers to view, purchase and enjoy.
With us being a professional firework displays company with many years establishment, we are now open throughout the year as well as the run up to Bonfire Night. Consequently we have to carry an all year round licence. Retailers looking to be open for a short term only over the main season will have to apply for a licence which can be obtained from their local licensing authority or fire department. Fireworks for sale can only be sold over the following periods:
•On the first day of the Chinese New Year and three days preceding it.
•On the day of Diwali and the three days immediately preceding it.
•During the period beginning on the 15th October and ending the 10th November.
•During the period on the 26th December and ending on 31st December.
Applications for larger stores wishing to keep more than 2000kg of explosives should be made to HSE.
Please remember it is illegal to sell to anyone under the age of eighteen and you must not smoke in any room where there are fireworks, neither should you permit customers to do so either.
To find out more information on just some of our high quality products, please take a look at our fireworks online range found on our website. In the meantime, we look forward to hopefully seeing some of you very soon!
