Fireworks stands across Central Virginia are shutting down and getting rid of their stock now that the Fourth of July is over.

CBS19 caught up with the owner of a stand in the Fashion Square Mall parking lot who was making some final sales before closing up for good.

Discount prices are meant to help rid fireworks stands of stock that wont keep until next year. One woman was even buying up sparklers for a wedding in August.

But what happens to the fireworks that aren't sold?

"A lot of the leftover fireworks, if they are not re-usable, we make sure that we throw them away." says Fireworks salesman Ray Davis.

"If they are reusable we have a basic container, or place that we store them where they make sure they stay safe and they stay clean and good for the next year."

Davis says he just sells fireworks a few weeks out of the year, his full time job is as a computer specialist with the Government.
