We all know how much major fail at supplying decent pyro. So lets ask, What would be the ideal brand for supermarkets, diy stores ect to sell for the season - and why?

Bright Star, they have a bit of everything, smaller items and selection boxes for young families right up to the war hawks and large cakes and the 1.3g stuff

TBH, I haver to agree Brightstar may not have a huge best range and have a good select few, But they are decent for supermarkets, and Yes weco would just top all TNT, Standard, Brightstar range on these shops, lidl proved that with been sold out.

What would be beneficial and interesting, would be to have a retailer selling in the future, it would change the game a lot.

Nut

they have the worst rockets even tnt have got better rockets then they do
It is the best 'SUPERMARKET' brand, that is a brand that has everything. Bright star have small boxes and rockets for young children and bigger stuff for larger garden displays.
And their rockets aren't that bad, War Hawks are bright star.
Bright star are not the best brand but they would provide fireworks to cover a wide audience, which is all you want from a supermarket.
And i also agree with weco being the best brand sold in supermarkets in recent years, but there was never a really wide range of fireworks. What was there was fantastic but for me they needed to show more of their products

Id love for one of the supermarkets to stock jorge items, espiecially as the majority of their range is cat 2 8m, these would be perfect for lots of families who dont own the massive gardens you are meant to have for cat 3.

Weco is the obvious choice though, wish aldi would come out with weco or some other new decent brand to pocket in on lidls withdrawal!

Jorge would be a good brand for the supermarkets, saw some great vids of some of their barrages earlier

I was amazed at the quality of some of the under £16 items, particularly as they were only cat2

It would change the game if one did stock Jorge fireworks.
It is highly unlikely that they will, I think it would take one of the german supermarkets, lidl or aldi, to bring Jorge into the eyes of the wider UK before the other stores would see the benefits.

I'm talking about the bright star rockets that aren't caged the caged ones are some of the best though and yes I agree I think their standard rockets need improving but they have good boxes and cakes

Then make sure you clearly say un-caged rockets, because you just said rockets, which gives the impression that you meant all their rockets.
they have the worst rockets even tnt have got better rockets then they do
I agree, their standard rockets aren't all that good, but i still think they are ok for families with young children
