With the July 4th 2017 deadline coming up next year for all retail consumer fireworks on sale to be CE BS-EN 15947, will there be lots of offers on the remaining BS7114 items still in the field that are doing the rounds, such as buy one get one free and/or drastic price reductions to get rid of that stock in readiness for the deadline next year? ;);) ;)

Maybe or they could hike the price, knowing these are going to be last time they get get them.

It would depend on where you shop for your fireworks as to what a retailer will do;I personally that think some of the big temporary seasonals that open up around the country like Myster Magic Padiham will knock a fair bit off the spoils / remains of the old BS 7114 compliant stuff they have left over with numerous bogof offers / free sparklers / rockets etc on some items and possibly have a sale up to the day the fireworks come off the shelves (or up to when the shops shut on 10th November) and that would be it till NYE selling period 26 - 31st December 2016, to get rid, who knows? ;) Some all year retailers could price-reduce, flog BS 7114 stuff they have on bogof offers or offer free BS 7114 fireworks etc with every purchase in a bid to-get-rid of the old non-compliant stock.

It's a nice thought, all these bargains to come.
But in reality, most BS stock has dried up already, you will find that most of your fireworks you purchase this year will be marked "CE".
No doubt there will be some odd bargains of items left out / mislayed etc.

Let's hope!

My local seasonal has big stocks of the old BS 7114 stuff which they will probably heavily discount again this late September when they open - I bought oodles of the stuff last year and will do so again, I got quite a few BS / Esco bits last year from Myster Magic Burnley Road Padiham Lancashire, still with BS 7114 on them. ;)

I think a lot of bargains have already come and gone, i saw lots of old BS stuff doing the rounds in various sales in the spring. I think whatever is left will be sold off either around now, ore just after BFN, rather than during silly season. And any last remaining bits will pop up next spring. However i do agree with @zephieish, i think most of any remains are now gone from most suppliers, so it'll be hard to find stuff for most people now

It depends. Some old stock is highly in demand, wo these items could go for above retail even. However come there is still large quantities of, it's these products that will be sold off cheap. And yes it does cost to dispose of fireworks, but i suspect that remaining stock will just be lit off
