Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) July 11, 2013
Jake's Fireworks superstores will remain open for business in Michigan and Indiana until Labor Day. While some states prefer to halt the selling of fireworks after July 5th, other communities continue the sale and use of commercial Fireworks throughout the summer season.
“Our superstores and megastore will remain open until Labor Day as permitted," Jake Marietta, mentions. “Michigan and Indiana are states that embrace the American tradition of lighting fireworks and we are happy to service their communities.”
Fireworks season typically differs from state-to-state but within the pyrotechnics industry, the fireworks season can range from March through September with a small spike during New Year's Eve and other national holidays. The sales and use of fireworks in the US can also change depending on drought and fire conditions.
Jake’s Fireworks opened new indoor locations in Michigan and Indiana earlier this year to service additional business generated by the change in state laws.
Jake’s Superstore Locations:
-Auburn Hills, Michigan – New location
-Kentwood, Michigan – Megastore
-Indianapolis, Indiana – New location

“Last year Michigan lifted a ban on fireworks allowing people to purchase products in their own community”, Marietta says. “We are happy that all bans have been lifted and our customers can safely resume the use of quality fireworks where permitted.”
Last year both the Michigan State House and the State Senate passed a bill that legalized the sale of consumer fireworks in Michigan. Under house Bill 4293/Senate Bill 0193, consumer grade fireworks would be legalized where similar fireworks were illegal in Michigan for years. However, legal sales in neighboring states such as Indiana and Ohio promoted Michigan residents to shop in other states.

Michigan Fireworks Safety Act
Under the bill, consumer fireworks can be sold at retail locations under a specific set of conditions, including the business being equipped with a fire suppression system. That provision goes into effect one year after the bill becomes law. As for using fireworks, anyone setting them off could not use them on public property, including school property, church property or on another person's property without their permission.
Consumer fireworks could not be sold to anyone under 18-years-old. And consumer fireworks could not be used by anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Smoking while using consumer fireworks would also be prohibited under National Fire Prevention Association guidelines. The bill also sets guidelines for penalties for anyone violating the law. They include fines and jail time, depending on the severity of the violation.
