Don Surenkamp with Patriotic Fireworks says "They doubled the shipping… more than doubled the cost of shipping to us. They raised the price of product probably more than 33 plus percent" The markup on fireworks is already ridiculous anyway, but probably even more so this year.
Don't be surprised if across the country, firework tents are empty before the 4th even hits this year. That is, IF they're even available where you live.
"I’d say, on average, we probably have 20% of our inventory left over for the following season and nobody in this country had inventory left over. That’s also what’s creating a shortage too… part of it.”
