Every year hundreds of thousands of Americans celebrate Independence Day with a big bang of fireworks. You can find stands on just about every street corner during the holiday, but where you choose to buy your sparklers and fountains makes a difference to one local family.
Morgan’s neighborhood firework stand is sponsored by Acme Discount Fireworks, but run by Morgan residents Jaime and Gina Grandpre.
Shopping local helps unite our community. “Knowing that you are supporting your neighbors and friends, gives us all a sense of pride in where we live,” commented Gina.
In support of shopping local, the family decided to change locations this year. Instead of being housed in the parking lot of Ridley’s, the firework stand will be located in the lot next to Front Street Gifts and Crossfit Unknown. This lot is owned by a Utah resident, resulting in a much better deal on the lease of the property, according to the Grandpre family.
