FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – As coronavirus leads to some Independence Day events being canceled, you may wonder what that means for fireworks sales.
Heather Gonzalez owns and operates the fireworks tent in front of the Fayetteville Walmart. Today, she prepared to open her second tent in Oak Hill near Kroger.
Although events have been canceled, she says the effort to socially distance has driven more at-home shows, meaning fireworks sales is still a steady business.
“My Fayetteville location is killing it right now,” said Gonzalez. “There is a lot of people out there who have decided to do the social distancing and just do a small show at home. I think the rise in individual sales has made a difference.”
The two locations are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Oak Hill location will officially open tomorrow.
