For over 30 years, Big Charlie’s Fireworks has operated firework stands and retail locations all over Southwest Missouri and Louisiana. Big Charlie’s sells everything from kid-friendly firework packs and sparklers to Saturn missiles, rockets, artillery shells, roman candles, and novelty firework items. Big Charlie’s Fireworks offers several retail locations that are open year-round to supply our loyal customers with fireworks for weddings, family reunions, gender reveal parties, as well as just some everyday fun.

After all this experience selling fireworks in Missouri and Louisiana, the Big Charlie’s team has a few tips for customers to keep in mind as they do their Independence Day firework shopping.

You Don’t Have to Spend Big Money For a Good Show

On top of our discounted prices, we have another tip to save you some cash this Fourth of July: if you’re budget is tight, go with a ground display. The best picks for a ground display? Fountains (the fireworks that spray sparks straight from the top of their cone), flat cakes (big boxes that blast multiple shots into the sky), and for smaller-ticket items, bottle rockets, smoke bombs, parachutes, and sparklers are a hit for family members of all ages.

Check For Discounts

If you’re in the military, or were in the military, first off, thank you. You are the reason we can keep celebrating this holiday year after year! At all Big Charlie’s Firework locations, we offer a 10% discount to active military personnel and veterans, healthcare workers, and first responders. Just be sure to let us know during your visit!

Consider Stocking Up at The End of The Season

After the holiday weekend, many firework vendors are looking to clear out this season’s stock. Typically, this means big discounts for shoppers. A thrifty firework-lover might want to start planning next year’s display as soon as this year’s ends. Just be sure to store your discounted fireworks somewhere dry – a moist basement can ruin your stash of fireworks.
