Last Minute Shoppers Looking For Fireworks

Last Minute Shoppers Looking For Fireworks

Posted: Updated:
BALDWIN COUNTY, ALABAMA -

It doesn't matter how young or old you are, 4th of July celebrations get a lot of people excited.

"I'm shopping for fireworks, it's my favorite thing to do. I don't get to do it much, only on New Year's Eve and Fourth of July," said 11 year old Shean Scarborough.

"We're just out here looking around for fireworks we plan on having a good time tonight," said a customer.

These last minute shoppers waited until the big day to stop by places like Shelton Fireworks. For some people it was the first day they've been able to get away from work.

"I work 7 days a week with assisted living," said a customer.

It's tough to estimate how many customers have already been in the store this week, but the manager says it's been steady.

"We have more cars in our parking lot than we've ever had in the history of being in business here," said Shelton Fireworks manager Ethan Snedigar.
