Seasonal Traditions can confirm from weco fireworks themselves, Some weco range will be sold in B&Q for 2014.

The email i received this morning, nearly made me choke on my pepsi max.

It is with the utmost of regret that I have to inform you that for 2014 LIDL in the UK has decided against our product. Some of our lines will however be distributed through B&Q stores.

In 2015 we will be back either by serving one of the big chain stores/supermarkets/discounters or through the internet. Further targets to tackle will be the wholesale trade and large retailers for which we are preparing selective product ranges.

With a bit of luck, they will have checked Lidls pricing for the last couple of years.

Hopefully it's very similar :D

Could be a whole new range!

Yes hopefully. Be nice to see a vast range if possible. Weco do have some interesting items that would fit nicely within my list.

Yeah, I can see it being something good.

Jorge is definitely a good shout now, looking at their range, they have a lot of Cat 2 which will appeal more to supermarkets.

Let's just hope it isn't TNT, I've nothing against them as they have some great items, but supermarkets will always buy the products with the most profit margin.

Not taking quality into consideration.

This could be great, but like the Range and brightstar, b&q have to keep the prices reasonable. Otherwise, people won't buy them, particularly people who don't know anything about fireworks.

I do hope the 25 Carat makes a return :)

Would you guys prefer a watered down version, or same bursts but fewer shots?

Think most of us remember the weco incidents last year though. But if B&Q make the effort then that be worth a journey for weco. Considering I have so many of them near by.

I gave 2 around me but both of them are the the worst roads I try to avoid.

we could have got lucky this time with weco down here in taunton, our b&q is just off the motorway at j25 so easily accessible, just hope they have some good weco stuff that is reasonably priced
