Fantastic Fireworks

Guy Fawkes night is almost here. Our ears will soon be ringing with bangs and whooshes, screeches, screams, oohs and aahs, as the sky is torn apart by an explosive scene to rival an apocalyptic vision! Humans have displayed a fascination with fire for millions of years, with the earliest fireworks believed to have been created in China around 2,000 years ago.

For retailers the sale of fireworks boosts profits and offers a wealth of promotional opportunities. However the practicalities of adhering to government regulations relating to the sale and storage of fireworks can be a headache. To view the online guidelines please click here.

Choosing where to store fireworks should be a primary security consideration. Current news stories illustrate a frightening number of incidents relating to firework theft:

£1,116 worth of ‘Black Cap' fireworks were stolen during a burglary at One Stop Shop in Malvern Worcestershire on 8th October.

£5,000 worth of fireworks have been stolen from a Merseyside Newsagents on 2nd November from a store room located next door to the Newsagents.

Police are investigating the theft of £5,000 worth of fireworks following the raid on a warehouse owned by an independent retailer from the Hillington Industrial Estate in Glasgow, where CCTV footage captured a group of men forcing open the shutters of the unit.

Sadly, it’s a familiar tale year on year. Last October ten men armed with machetes stole three wooden pallets of fireworks from a Manchester Warehouse. Point Four urge retailers to take security seriously when advertising firework availability, to prevent your pyrotechnic profits going up in smoke.

When selling fireworks retailers are required to display signage stating that it is illegal to sell adult fireworks or sparklers to anyone under 18 and for anyone under 18 to possess adult fireworks in a public place.

Point Four provide customisable age prompts for all age restricted products, aiding the implementation of due diligence. To request the set up of age prompts for your firework product groups please contact Point Four today on 0844 811 8700.
