Just a reminder to any planeteer that visits Pyro Joe's this season mention the planet and I'll give you an additional discount for shopping with me.Also if you're not aware I pride myself on cherry picking all of my 500 gram cakes and most of my multi-shots and fountains so you have my guarantee you will get more show for less dough.

Yeah, I though about that the other night when I read the KC area was something like 6 inches of rain short of average. We've managed to get a little more down here, but still ridiculously dry.

Would u say about 90% of your business is from July 1-4th?

When I lived up there, I would always wait till they went half price the day of the 4th. :)

Be thankful you are in an air-conditioned building and not a tent/shack/garage. I sold for 20+ years and this is my second year of retirement from the fireworks business. Can't say that I miss it.

I've got a mortar I sell called Supernova that I guarantee will do the trick,no flashy paper or packaging just a non-cardboard tube and eight hellacious shots all wrapped in plain brown paper for $28.99.They were so popular last season I brought in 27 cases this season and I tell my customers to be safe I'd put the tube inside a concrete block.Closest C-class shell I've seen to a B-class mortar.

Yep,I did a Daily Deal promo with the daily paper here and had to give a $20 gift certificate for $10 which I then had to split with the paper 50/50 because it was on their website.They sold 50 total and i shit you not all but a handful stayed right at the $20 and a few even had the cashiers take a couple of things out of their order because they had gone over by 2 or 3 bucks.

I don't feel too bad for you on that. I don't think those things are a good deal for anybody except for the guy selling them to proprietors. I'll never participate in one of those from the businessman side. We buy them now and then for restaurants around here but we always spend an extra $30-40 per trip.
