GO COMPARE – ASDA Vs EPIC FIREWORKS

GO COMPARE – ASDA Vs EPIC FIREWORKS

Annually, we, like most of our customers, receive the usual marketing messages and literature from the local supermarkets and compare our pricing with theirs as we know money is tight and we all just love a bargain.

Here are some of the items on offer at ASDA this year and our comparable products:

ASDA

QUIET STORM BARRAGE

18 SHOTS – LOW NOISE – 35 SECONDS – £20.00

EPIC FIREWORKS

DR THRUST BARRAGE

25 SHOTS – MEDIUM NOISE – 30 SECONDS – £9.98

If you should wish to stay with the quieter barrages, check out these.  They are all the same price and duration and low noise with lots of effects and shots:

MOVING TARGET BARRAGE

105 SHOTS – LOW NOISE – 20 SECONDS – £17.76

ASDA

SPACE BLITZ BARRAGE

93 SHOTS – MEDIUM NOISE – 80 SECONDS – £50.00

EPIC FIREWORKS

HEAVY DUTY BARRAGE

ASDA

FIRESTORM

EPIC FIREWORKS

OPTIMUM BARRAGE

16 SHOTS – MEDIUM NOISE – 20 SECONDS – £7.44

25 SHOTS – MEDIUM NOISE – 40 SECONDS – £9.96

SENSATIONAL PARTY

The Asda version includes 42 fireworks including some sparklers, a selection of fountains, rockets and shot tubes along with a small barrage for £50.00.  Although this is good value for money, you can get much more if you shop carefully.

SENSATIONAL PARTY PACK BY ASDA FIREWORKS

For example, Epic Fireworks have a wide range of collection only packs with the garden firework in mind.  I would recommend you check out the following:

TRAITORS PARTY

This includes a great selection box that contains 15 high-quality products (none of the slight fizz and pop here!) One huge Halo Fountain, 3 packs of high impact 1.3G rockets and a couple of barrages which will delight everyone.

With the change, you can buy sparklers!!

If you need any help regarding fireworks, we have advice on everything from pet care to food for Bonfire Night as well as what to do if it is raining (what? In England!!).  Pop along or give us a ring and we will be happy to help.

Epic Goes All Price Comparison – Asda

Asda

Its Bonfire Night fast approaching so all thoughts turn to grabbing the best fireworks available bearing your budget in mind.

So here at Epic, being the public-spirited group of lovelies that we are have gone all price comparison to make sense of the fireworks out there.

This week, we compare with Asda’s range. Now they are not a bad quality item or anything like that but for your money, they are still not great value. I would like to compare first of all the ‘Mystic Deal’ family selection pack with an Epic equivalent:

Asda’s Mystic Deal:

• 2 packs of 5 sparklers
• 18 piece selection box
• 2 small barrages

Cost inc. VAT £50.00

Epic’s Penny for the Guy Selection

• 14 piece quality Standard Cliffhanger selection box
• 3 packs of 5 1.3G specially selected rockets (15 in total)
• 1 Award-winning 1.3G barrage
• 1 Chinese lantern

Cost inc. VAT £44.95

So with your £5.00 change, you could also get 10 sparklers, 1 magic stars barrage and a big shot barrage and still have change for a coke! (obviously to photograph it against!)

Then, to one of their large consumer display barrages, ‘The Eye of the Storm’ which has 101 shots of varied effects and lasts around 43 seconds. The cost, a not inconsiderable £100.00 inc VAT.

For the same £100.00 you could have the spectacular ‘The Phantom 500’ multi-effect barrage which lasts a staggering 2 minutes 25 seconds and costing £39.95, and still, have enough for one of the UK’s best finale cakes, the fantastic Screaming Spiders at £44.95 for 55 seconds of sky filling mayhem.

So, your choice is simple, go for inferior, over-priced fireworks from your local supermarket who have no real specialist knowledge of fireworks but can tell you all there is to know about bread or you could consider a trip over to see us at Epic Fireworks and get double the goodies, with double the effects and which last for more than double the time – simples!!!
