Firework Sales Start Tonight In North Dakota

Fireworks lovers in Grand Forks might want to stay up past bedtime. Because tonight at midnight is when they go on sale.

Fireworks lovers in Grand Forks might want to stay up past bedtime. Because tonight at midnight is when they go on sale, and Generous Jerry's in Grand Forks is gearing up.

Shoppers I talked to today that were buying fireworks were already excited for the fourth of July.

In most states people can buy fireworks year-round whereas North Dakota residents are only allowed to buy from June 27th through July 5th.

Workers at Generous Jerry's say since they opened up in April they have already seen a lot of business.

There seems to be an endless supply of boxes at the store full of new and interesting choices this year, and some old favorites.

“We got some sparklers for the kids and some of the little ground ones that snake along the ground, but mostly the artillery shells. It's different stuff but it's the same type of, you know like effect, the same effects.” shopper Mat Schad said.

Shoppers say they like the bigger fireworks and sometimes the packaging has an effect on which ones they buy.
