That's because, effective 1 July 2015, it will be legal for Georgians to purchase fireworks in Georgia.
Jake’s Fireworks, a Pittsburg, Kansas-based company in business for over 75 years, will be ready to supply Georgia with bottle rockets, sparklers and other goods the first day it’s legal.
The company will be opening five stores throughout the state this year. The grand opening will begin on 26 June at two Macon locations -- 3377 Mercer University Drive, Macon, GA 31204; and 1406 Gray Hwy, Macon, GA 31211.
Until sales are legal, the stores will have open house sessions where customers can walk the aisles and ask any questions they may have.
As part of the open house sessions, Jake’s Fireworks will also be hosting multiple safety events leading up to the grand opening. Be sure to come out and learn how to safely mount and light fireworks, what products are safe for children and other safety tips.
Mick Marietta, CSO of Jake’s Fireworks, said they are excited to finally be able to cater to Georgia customers directly.
“Jake’s Fireworks is proud to announce the opening of air conditioned superstores into the Atlanta, Athens & Macon markets for the upcoming 4th of July season,” Marietta said. “Georgia is a market that in the past has forced many customers to go beyond the borders to get fireworks will that now be legal in the Peach State. As the exclusive provider of World Class Fireworks, the leading brand in consumer fireworks, we are excited for Georgians to experience the Excalibur, One Bad Mother and many of our cutting edge products for their Independence Day celebrations.”
Besides the two Macon locations, Jake’s Fireworks will have stores in Bogart, Kennesaw, and Buford. For additional information, including store addresses and hours of operation, be sure to visit www.jakesfireworks.com/georgia.
