VICTORIA, Texas– The 4th of July is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. Despite COVID-19 concerns, Alamo Fireworks has seen a spike in sales.
“We’ve noticed across-the-board that our sales have increased. I think we are up something like 78% from last Fourth of July so we have seen a huge uptake in sales across the board,” said Chelsea Bode, the Alamo Fireworks Communications Director.
This comes as a huge surprise to Bode that the doors are open for this year’s 4th of July celebrations due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
“We were 50-50. There was a big part of us that thought it may drive sales but there was a part of us that was a little nervous. We did a lot of planning and preparation for what we would do if we couldn’t have a Fourth of July season,” said Bode.
Currently, in Victoria County, there’s no fire ban. Although Patriot’s Park Fireworks show has been canceled, you and your family can still have a safe firework show at home. Bode, would like to thank the community for the continuing support during these difficult times.
“Yeah we’re super grateful for our customers and especially people who have been shopping at Alamo fireworks for so long we feel like we kinda have a loyal family and was so grateful that they still are coming out and supporting us,” said Bode
Alamo Fireworks is open now until July 4th at 11:59 P.M. In certain locations Alamo is offering curbside service to get more information click here.
