I went to a few different Phatboy locations tonight, and what I can tell you is that prices vary greatly.

I went to the one on Kingsway near King Edward, another one on Kingsway near Slocan, and the 41st and Knight locations.

By far, the Kingsway near Slocan location had the best deals.

Just buy fireworks on the 31st. They need to clear their stock or whatever they don't sell goes back to the companies. So they will try and sell to make some money.

If you get the chance, compare the one Vansterdam proposed and the one on Kingsway near Slocan (that Invisible Soul proposed).

Quick question is there tax on fireworks? I went to the phatboy location near David Thompson and I think they ripped me off by 10-20$
Banner outside says $3 for 2 dancing devils and a whole bunch of crap
I bought shitloads so I didn't calculate the prices until now lol

Ps the menace is pretty cool.. Same with the blackout

I didn't do a whole lot of shopping around but I really wanted some real god damn explosives, some cherry bombs, bottle rockets or firecrackers, the guy I bought mine from said they weren't allowed. what the hell? I ended up with some crackling thunder and and red dragon candle. Haven't tried them but i know they aren't gonna blow up this old tv like i planned.

Remember to price check on phatboy buying from a retailer!

After that, take like 5 dollars off from each cake!
