OH SNAP! COVID-19 looks to be back with a vengeance this fall.  From rising case-counts to retail restrictions and impending lock-downs, we’re not out of the woods just yet.

In times like these, it’s human nature to call in the chips, pull in the cards, and play things conservatively.

…but remember Canada Day?  Record fireworks sales, empty fireworks displays, and customers desperate AND eager to spend more to raise their sprits.  Some BLAST-OFF customers reported sales increases in excess of 500% year-over-year.

Expect a repeat this New Years Eve… fireworks sales are guaranteed to CRACKLE and BOOM!  

A few reasons behind the surge in fireworks demand this holiday season:

  1. This year has just plain sucked.  People are keen to start 2021 on a high-note, and fireworks are the perfect way to create this cheer.
  2. Nothing else will be happening this holiday season.  Everything from Christmas parties to school concerts, holiday parades, and New Years bashes have been cancelled.
  3. That huge New Years Eve fireworks display in town… it’s been cancelled too.  This means that people will be forced to take a “do-it-yourself” approach with backyard fireworks.
  4. Fireworks are COVID-19 friendly… they are perfect for the backyard, as they allow for audiences to physically distance.
  5. The long-range weather forecast looks fantastic – and who wants to be stuck inside on New Years Eve when you can have FIREWORKS and a family bonfire?!

Our recommendation: Order EARLY and order HEAVY – this Holiday Season will be one for the record books.

Guarantee that your retail outlet will have the “biggest” and “best” selection of fireworks this New Years Eve by placing your order NOW!  Early orders will receive priority shipping, plus… you can take advantage of our convenient New Years payment terms: order now, and pay AFTER January 1st.

Given anticipated demand, we also suggest ordering additional “back-room” stock this Holiday Season.  Most fireworks sales will occur in the last few days of December – from the 28th through the 31st –  making quick replenishment nearly impossible. 

If we’re wrong with our 2020 holiday forecast, remember that you are welcome to take advantage of our “100% Guaranteed Sale” terms – simply return any unsold merchandise for a FULL refund of your purchase price!

As usual, our team will keep in touch to help you prepare for a record-breaking holiday season!  Should you have any questions prior to our next conversation, or if you’re ready to place your fireworks order, feel free to contact Mission Control at 1-866-827-4765.


YES… we are open to help Launch Your Profits™ this holiday season!

As Manitoba continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our employees, our community, and our customers is our primary concern.

On Thursday, November 12th, the Province of Manitoba moved to its “Critical Level (Red)” on the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System.  While BLAST-OFF Fireworks will continue to operate to serve the needs of our customers, there are a number of measures we’re taking to ensure we manage this situation safely and effectively:

  1. Our facilities in Selkirk remain operational, but we have asked our staff to limit interactions with the public for the foreseeable future.  To this end, we have once again suspended all non-essential visits to our office and distribution campus.
  2. We have asked our employees limit all non-essential meetings, travel, and personal socialization.  In the event that team members exhibit signs of illness, we have asked these individuals to self-isolate and remain at home for a minimum of 14 days.
  3. We have temporarily suspended deliveries via the BLAST-OFF Fireworks corporate truck network.  At present, and until further notice, all deliveries will be handled by our corporate logistics partners, including Loomis Express, Purolator Courier, Day & Ross, Gardewine Transport, Manitoulin Transport, and others.
  4. Until further notice, we have temporarily suspended client returns, ensuring that our staff and customers are protected from unintended COVID-19 transmission.  Returns presently in-transit to our facility will still be accepted – as returns are received, they will enter a period of quarantine prior to processing at our Distribution Centre.

We assure you that we are 100% committed to providing you with the products and services that you have come to expect from BLAST-OFF Fireworks.  Over the next while, our communications could be delayed, some products may be in short supply, and shipping may take longer than anticipated… but we continue to be here for you. 

These methods of communication will remain open at all times:

  • Order Desk / Customer Service Toll-Free Telephone:  1-866-827-4765
  • Order Desk / Customer Service E-mail: sales@blastofffireworks.ca

While these may be challenging and frightening times, we’re fully committed to work with you and your team to get through this together!

Looking to send 2020 out with a BANG!?

Try a BLAST-OFF Fireworks “Show in a Box” for your holiday festivities!  Each display comes complete with set-up and ignition instructions, and has been fully customized by our team – utilizing only the best fireworks products:

Here’s an idea…  why not sponsor a New Year’s fireworks extravaganza by providing the show “at cost” to your community?

Sponsoring a community fireworks display costs your retail location absolutely nothing (you can provide the show “at cost” to the local community group of your choice), and it:

  • Provides INVALUABLE word-of-mouth marketing and publicity in your community.
  • Levers your marketing efforts. How many other ways can you receive FREE marketing in your community?
  • Positions your store as the “fireworks specialist” in your community!

Remember that the purchase of any “Show in a Box” qualifies to receive your regular wholesale discount, regardless of whether it is donated to a community group or used in your personal back-yard!


Given current events in Canada, and continuing product delays within our global supply chain, we are encouraging our customers to place their orders early this holiday season.

Planing ahead will GUARANTEE the best selection of products for your store, and provide time for seamless delivery to your location!

Why not pre-book your order now, and our team will pre-pack it for shipment at your convenience?!
