TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - MPA Fireworks owner Mike Adams said last year’s success could be hurting this year’s sales.

“It was just a phenomenal year but we’re paying for it this year in the fact that we don’t have as much to sell again,” Adams said.

He said this year’s inventory is at 50% of normal capacity. He believes this is because of supply and demand, and the transportation of goods being held up after a booming season last year.

“Whoever your favorite firework stand is or supplier is, go now,” Adams said. “Go get them because they are not going to be able to replenish anything that they sell off the shelves.”

Sales start today, June 24 and are open until the night of July 4.
