Fireworks are high-impulse items, and product presentation makes a HUGE difference in the success of your fireworks category! Remember to consider:

  • LOCATION - Are fireworks products positioned in an eye-catching location?
  • VIEW - Can customers easily view your fireworks selection?
  • ORGANIZATION - Is your fireworks selection neatly organized in one central location?
  • PROMOTION - Is your fireworks selection identified with point-of-sale marketing materials?
  • SAFETY -Consider how you will be storing your fireworks, where they will be stored, and the amount of product you intend to merchandise. Here are a few safety requirements to keep in mind when “Stowing Your Cargo”:

Here are a few additional safety requirements to keep in mind as you "Stow your Cargo":

Over the past number of years, an additional attribute - safety, has also emerged at the forefront of fireworks retailing. It is vital to consider how you will be storing your fireworks, where they will be stored, and the physical amount of product that you intend to merchandise within your retail outlet.

Here are a few safety requirements to consider when planning how to merchandise your fireworks category:

Note: Fireworks contained within Cardboard-enclosed Family Packs may be merchandised in areas allowing direct consumer access. Appropriate locations include: Bunk-end displays, profit panel displays, impulse and cash register displays, and seasonal-products sections.

Recommended
  • Consult with your local municipality or fire prevention office to verify municipal storage requirements prior to merchandising fireworks.
  • Ensure that fireworks are displayed in a manner which prevents public access to loose products. Only family packs may be merchandised without restricting public access. As of 2015, all family packs on display must be constructed completely of cardboard packaging material (cellophane kits no longer approved for on-floor display).
  • Loose fireworks items must be stored in a way that prevents fire from spreading rapidly from one lot to the next. Appropriate locations include:
    • behind-the-counter shelving
    • glass showcase displays
    • closed display cabinets
    • any other retail area that is not directly accessible to customers
  • Post a "NO SMOKING" sign near the display area.
  • Ensure that your retail outlet satisfies Workplace Health and Safety regulations pertaining to unobstructed emergency exits.
  • Install a suitable ABC fire extinguisher in your retail outlet.
  • Verify that the purchasers of fireworks are 18 years of age of older.
Not Recommended
  • Merchandising illegal or unapproved fireworks articles.
  • Storing in excess of 1000 kg of consumer fireworks at your retail outlet.
  • Storing fireworks in retail lots greater than 25 kg.
  • Storing fireworks with other dangerous goods including paint, propane cylinders, or cooking oil.
  • Displaying fireworks in areas of direct sunlight or direct heat.
  • Permitting minors to purchase or handle retail fireworks.
