Fireworks supermarket in Tennessee. You're one stop shop for all amateur pyrotechnicians. They literally have shopping carts and baskets to fill to the brim as you walk down the aisles. My family often stops on our road trip to procure products for 4th of July celebrations in our firework intolerant state. There always seem to be an abundance of staff who are more than happy to offer recommendations and show footage of each product (I have been told each store has a staff party where one of every firework in the store is lit and observed). I may not be back for my families party this summer but a brought a few to my friend in the city for new years.
