VIDEO: Fireworks sales in East Ridge spark business boom

Posted: Updated:

EAST RIDGE, TN. (WRCB) -- This time of year, the fireworks business is booming.

There are several stores setting up in East Ridge for the first time.

One opened at midnight Tuesday, and plans to stay open around the clock through the Fourth of July holiday.

The City Council voted last fall to adopt a set of standards to regulate sales, after Tennessee legislature allowed fireworks to be sold.

Channel 3 wanted to know what's popular this year, so we sent WRCB Photojournalist Jared Guest inside one store to see what people are filling their carts with.

And just a reminder, it is illegal to shoot fireworks within East Ridge City limits.
