The Early Bird Catches the Burn
For the second year in a row, the fireworks industry is predicting that consumer fireworks will be in short supply. Last year, because of an unprecedented volume of sales, the fireworks industry sold out across all 50 states before the 4th of July. As to the 2021 fireworks season, the unfortunate shortage forecast is due to the unparalleled regulation of production by the Chinese government as well as anomalous freighting logjams in both the Chinese and American ports.
“The Early Bird Catches the Burn”, is not a gimmick but an honest attempt to warn our customers that waiting too long to make your purchase this year may result in disappointment. This is also true for retailers like myself. Consequently, in anticipation of this shortfall, we brought in extra deliveries last Fall to begin to build up our inventory. Furthermore, we received our first delivery of 2021 on March 5th, the earliest spring delivery in our 20 year history and we will be receiving deliveries every week as long as wholesalers maintain an incoming supply. For all of us, the best antidote to this shortfall is to buy early.
We sincerely wish all of you a great renewal in 2021. We will give you our best effort to be a part of bringing normalcy to all of our lives.
North of the Border Fireworks, or NOTB Fireworks as we and our customers refer to us as, is proud to be a big part of your summer or celebrations year round. Our Fireworks retail and wholesale store is easily reachable from Pocono destinations such as Honesdale PA, Hamlin PA, Milford PA, Scranton PA, and even Monticello PA.
If you vacation in the Poconos from the city, be sure to stop by on your way through and say "hi." If you are a Pennsylvania resident, we welcome you, as always, but an amazing and recent PA state-law change makes buying fireworks a breeze for everyone!
If you've been a long time customer at NOTB Fireworks, change is in the wind. We have just begun our own wholesale program, the Case-Lot Specials Program, that allows you to buy our fireworks and pyrotechnics at an even steeper discount. We have twelve items currently that you can purchase by the case, but that number is continuing to expand.
We can't wait to see you in our fireworks store this year, let's make 2021 a year of colorful and explosive fun!
