Fireworks sales booming this year

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

 Fireworks sales are booming at this T-N-T store in Cordele next to Harvey’s on 16th Avenue.
 It's one of the few in south Georgia with a permit to sell exploding fireworks now legal in the state.
 As we told you Tuesday at 11 p.m., they started selling at midnight Wednesday and were busy all day.
    

“People have been trying to cross state lines for this stuff so now it finally being allowable in Georgia people are being crazy. We’ve had so many people coming in buying stuff. I didn’t even realize how many things people could fit under their arms to carry,” said Digging Deeper Gavin Barnes TNT Fireworks Sales Staffer.      

 The staff said they have plenty of inventory for now, but they expect crowds to pick up and encourage customers not to wait till the last minute.
