Fireworks sales booming during New Year’s holiday

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Fireworks salesmen at Loco Joes Fireworks in Hattiesburg say 2020 sales have been booming compared to previous years.

Steven Aycock said he believes the boost in sales is due to everyone being stuck at home this year due to COVID-19.

“Everybody’s just tired of being at home or they just need something to do at home,” Aycock said. “You come in and get your fireworks and everybody shoots them at home. It’s all outside and it’s just a lot of fun.”

Some top sellers this year are Bamboozles, Fireflies and Light Brigade.
