Frequently asked questions...

Why should I buy my fireworks from Great Northern?

Because unlike the majority of firework shops, supermarkets and corner shops we actually fly out to China ourselves to visit the factories where our fireworks are made and have done so for the last 16 years. We import our own brand, Planet Fireworks, so you can be sure of top quality performance every time. We never manufacture fireworks "to a price" nor do we import fireworks to "job out on deals". We write our own descriptions based on what we have seen, not on what a wholesalers' dog eared catalogue says! We have 100% confidence in our fireworks and we always use them on our professional shows because they always perform.We are a firework company 365 days a year, unlike the local greengrocer, cash and carry, tobacconist, paper shop or even multi million pound supermarket who only sell fireworks for 3 weeks a year!

Are you an established UK based company?

YES! We are a family run business and we've sold fireworks to the British public for over 30 years. We are respected members of the British Firework Association (an organisation for UK firework importers) and the Explosives Industry Group (run by the CBI) These are the largest firework organisations in the UK. We initially retailed fireworks in Crossgates and Seacroft from our shops "Jack of all Trades" We then started The Great Northern Firework Company and have become one of the largest firework specialists in the North of England. All our staff are fully trained and work for our Professional Display Team. They will explain how to use your fireworks safely, the best way to fire them and anything else you would like to know, plus lots you don't need to! We offer the complete service, not just the fireworks, all year round. We are not your average high street firework shop - call in and see for yourself, we are always open, always fully stocked!

Can I buy fireworks, I don't have a license or anything?

YES! All our fireworks comply with the new European standard BS EN 15947 and are for sale to the general public. No special license required! Our showroom in Leeds is open to you, the public, all year round and we carry our full range in stock so you don't have to pre-order. Larger orders can take a while to pack so we would advise you ring our showroom on 0113 2498901 before hand.

Where is your shop located and can I just call in?

YES! No appointment needed! We are situated in a retail park just on the outskirts of Leeds City Centre towards Roundhay Road. Follow Roseville Road (A58) out of town and you will past MSF Peugot (left) then take the road left at Colin Appleyards Motorbikes. Now take your first right into Haines Park following the road as it bears left behind Wilco Motosave. Well lit and spacious, our 450 sq ft showroom has private parking directly outside for 20 cars and the whole area is CCTV monitored. Unlike a lot of so called "all year firework shops" we always have stock as our 2 HSE licensed ex-WW2 explosive magazines in North Yorks have a total storage capacity of over 300 ton! All year shop, all year stock!
