(WTVM) - Managers at the Fireworks Outlet in Seale, AL say they are seeing a major increase in the number of customers.
You may know Wanda Lamb as the "Bang Bang Lady," and she says more people are going to her shop because of a five percent tax in Georgia.
If you plan to shoot off fireworks throughout the weekend, she has some safety tips you need to know.
"Never use metal or a glass container," Lamb said. "Always make sure that you never put your hand over top of what you're shooting because that can be dangerous. Mostly use common sense."
If you plan to shoot off fireworks, you can only do so until midnight on July 4. During the rest of the year, the cutoff time is 9 p.m.
