    The Fourth of July holiday feel on a Wednesday this year.

    For some that may have been a bummer but for one local business it meant a boost in sales.

    Pyrozone and Big Bang Fireworks says the holiday falling in the middle of the week was good for business.

    Michael Pearlman, the owner, says sales were higher this year than in years past.

    He says the weather played a role and he's glad the rain held out for the holiday.

    Pearlman says." When the fourth falls in the middle of the week like this, people don't have the opportunity to travel like they normally would if it were on the weekend cause everyone's got to go back to work after the Fourth, so usually the sales are a little higher on the fourth because everybody stays in town."

    While their storefront isn't open year round, Pearlman says you can contact them via their Facebook page to supply your fireworks needs all year round.
