Detroit, MI (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
If you like highflying and loud-sounding fireworks like Roman candles and bottle rockets, representatives with Jakes Wholesale Fireworks say they have the supply to light up the sky while adding jobs for local citizens, thanks to the passage of bill 4293.
“Companies interested in wholesale fireworks can buy our fireworks to start their retail business this Fourth of July season in Michigan,” said Jared Hicks, Indiana distribution manager for Jakes Wholesale Fireworks.
Gov. Rick Snyder, in December, signed into law, the legalization of previously outlawed fireworks, replacing Michigan’s original law written in 1931.
Under the new law, vendors are now allowed to sell single-shot artillery shells, reloadable artillery shells, bottle rockets, Roman candles, multi-shot repeaters, firecrackers, and more.
“Jakes has the closest fireworks warehouse to Michigan,” said Hicks, whose distribution center is located less than 10 miles from the state of Michigan. “Jakes is especially unique because we sell shipping containers of fireworks from China, all the way to retail fireworks direct to consumer.”
The passage of the bill could prove to have perfect timing.
According to a recent study, conducted by NDP Group, an industry leader in consumer trends, research, and analysis, cities and counties within the United States who allow the sale of firecrackers have not only added jobs, but have also seen a 32 percent increase in annual tax revenue over the past 36 months and is expected to continue an upward spiral through 2020.
“Jakes Fireworks buys direct from China and is able to give great pricing,” Hicks stressed. “We also have our own private label fireworks that are very popular like Excalibur.”
Kimberly Thomas, 34, of Wayne County, who has been unemployed for 17 months, said she’s excited about the possibility of finding work even if it’s a temporary job due to the high demand of newly legalized fireworks.
“I personally love to shoot Roman candles and I know that a large part of the community does to, so it will only bring in more money to an area that really needs it and hopefully a job for me,” Thomas said. “I can’t wait.”
