WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Keystone Novelties is looking for responsible, high energy individuals or Non-Profit Groups with good Retail, Organization and Management skills to operate a fireworks sale for the 4th of July season. You will be responsible for all aspects of operating and managing the location.

The opening dates vary from 6 days to 12 days depending on the location where as the 12 day season would start June 24th. You must be available through July 6th.

Since 1989, Keystone Fireworks has been a leading seller of consumer fireworks in the Mid-Atlantic region. In 2015, we will offer our own brand of top quality fireworks at nearly 500 tent outlets. Our tent sales have proven to be a great source of income for both individuals and non-profit groups and there are no upfront costs. Besides a few personal items, Keystone supplies everything you need to run a first class tent sale. We are happy to include you with the thousands of other individuals who have had a positive experience with Keystone. For more information and to see photos of a typical Keystone Fireworks tent, please visit our website.

All applicants MUST have a clean record as a background check will be performed prior to any consultation. We will provide the Location, Stand, Merchandise, Marketing Tools and Training as well as securing all necessary Licenses and Permits. All Keystone Fireworks products are provided so there is up front cost. If you or someone you know would be interested please contact Tammy Gillespie at Keystone Novelties for more information.

Available Locations: We have locations available in the following states - RI, CT, NY, PA, WV, MD, VA, NC and GA

Basic Procedure: You must arrive at your tent by 7:30 a.m. on opening day since the fireworks will be delivered by a freight company that morning. Area managers, who visit each tent daily, will provide additional product as needed and will take trash and money during each visit. You will close the tent on the evening of July 5th then pack up the merchandise and supplies and clean the tent and surrounding area thoroughly. At 8 a.m. on the morning of July 6, you will deliver the unsold merchandise and supplies to your manager at a designated storage facility. You must arrange to have a truck or van available to you on July 6th, as it is your responsibility to pack and return the leftover merchandise. Upon return of your unsold merchandise and supplies on July 6th, you will receive the first part of your pay. You must attend a supply pick-up session since you will receive (in addition to valuable information) your supplies, local permits for your tent, table skirting, etc.

Helpers: Your biggest responsibility is to plan ahead so that you have enough help when you need it. You must have at least one competent adult helper all day on the following days: the opening day (June 24-30 depending on your location) to help unload the merchandise, decorate the tent and set up the display and again on July 3rd and 4th to help with sales. Having plenty of extra help on the first day will allow you to get your tent open sooner and begin selling. Without at least one good helper on the 3rd and 4th, you will be overwhelmed, as the great majority of sales occur on these days. We recommend that you also have help to pack up the leftover merchandise on July 5th at closing and to help you turn in your merchandise on July 6th.

Care of Merchandise and Supplies: You are responsible for the safe keeping of the merchandise and supplies at all times. The product remains in the tent all week, so you must arrange to have someone on site at all times. Your options are as follows:

       · Arrange for a night watchman to stay at the tent during closed hours. Arranging for a night watchman that you trust will be the single most important thing you can do to make the week easy for you.

      · Stay in the tent yourself. You can do this, provided that the money and valuables have been removed from the site! Keep in mind that this is a long week, and it is much easier if you can simply turn the tent over to your night watchman and then go home for a good night’s sleep

      · Renting a truck or trailer and packing the merchandise away at night is not an option. If you can’t make arrangements to have someone on site, you can’t operate a tent.

This may not be for everyone, but if you have the skills and capabilities there is a lot of money to be made in a very short period of time.

Our program is a great fit for Students / Teachers / Church Groups / Sports Teams / Band Boosters etc. We do business with Non-Profit Entities and with individual Entrepreneurs.
