Once again, as we do each year around this time, we compare our prices against the top supermarkets across the UK. Whilst some offers look good at first glance, when you compare them against Epic Fireworks prices, you could be missing out – big time.

Take for example a small family fireworks pack from Tesco, comprising of a Solaris selection box, a pack of 5 shot roman candle tubes, 5 packs of sparklers, 2 Catherine wheels, 5 rockets, a 16 shot barrage and 3 safety lighters. On Tesco’s website you will be asked to part with a not inconsiderable £50.00 of your hard earned cash to buy this.

When you compare the pack recommended by us with the same 2 Catherine Wheels and the Solaris selection box, a hundred shot missile cake, not 5 rockets but 10 and in place of the 16 shot barrage, with our offer, you get a 32 shot barrage. Furthermore, as with Tesco, we offer 5 packs of sparklers giving you 20 in total and 4 safety lighters (portfires) and all for a vastly reduced price of just £34.22.

As many of the major players in the supermarket world offer similar packs at around the same price, around £50-£60 here at epic we can give you much better value saving you well over 40%.

In addition to a wide selection of small garden and relatively quiet fireworks and we also stock a HUGE range of the bigger 1.3G fireworks which supermarkets are not able to sell.

Here, we specialise in fireworks – we don’t sell anything that is not firework related and in addition to this, being a long standing fireworks company, we are in the position to supply all types of fireworks all year round. Furthermore, as we buy in huge quantities we often beat the high street firework prices by up to 50% in most cases. Moreover, we will be here the day after bonfire night as many “pop-up” shops selling fireworks will be long gone by the 6th.

Carrying one of the UK’s biggest ranges of fireworks also means we have something to suit everyone, from small selection boxes at just £7.56, almost silent 16 shot barrages to huge finale cakes rated at the highest legal limit of 120Db and with a video of each firework you can get an idea of the effects to expect before you buy.

Quality fireworks at wholesale prices supplied all year round may explain why after 30 years in the industry we getting bigger each year with almost 10,000 returning customers annually and wedding celebrants all year round, we must be doing something right.

Tesco supermarket, we widely accept as being one of the top 4 in the UK but when it comes to pricing and fireworks, we have got it covered.

Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks. Star Fire Roman Candle Pack.

Tesco Vs Epic Fireworks - Star Fire Roman Candles by Standard Fireworks

The Roman Candle is the basis for a great many of today’s fireworks and is central to many a garden display on Bonfire Night around the UK. However, the cost of the humble roman candle can vary greatly as can the effects.

Once again we would like to compare pricing with Tesco Supermarkets for the beautiful Star Fire roman candle. The effects are varied: green comets, pink glitter bursts, golden crackle clouds and spiralling purple tails to name just a few all firing 5 shots per item.

Tesco price: £150.00 including VAT for 6 packs of 4. They are not available for sale separately.

Epic price: £89.64 including VAT for 6 packs of 4. We also sell them individually at our Head Office sales outlet at £14.94 per pack of 4.

So why would you not choose EpicFireworks when we offer great value for money, excellent customer service and good old-fashioned Yorkshire hospitality with a cup of tea or coffee on request.
