In business at the same location since 1947, Captain Jim's has the best product at the best prices.
Because of this, Captain Jim's sells more fireworks per square foot than any stand in the Country!

Captain Jim's was started as Meyers Fireworks in 1947 by Mary Meyers.  In the late 60's, Mary's son Jim took over the fireworks operation while Mary concentrated on her drive-in food business on the same property.  In 1978, the current building that you see pictured above, was built.  It was called Snappy fireworks and stayed pretty much the same until the great flood of 1993.  After that, the building was painted and cleaned up, and Jim re-named Snappy, to Captain Jim's Fireworks.

In January of 2005, Captain Jim passed away and his son, also named Jim, took over the business.  That year, the building went through a complete remodel and opened to the public year round.  

Captain Jim's fireworks has remained in business for so long because we do things a bit differently.  We concentrate on the customer experience, ensuring your visit to our store is one that you will remember.  Our prices are the lowest in the area, we carry the absolute best product in the market, and our staff knows the product and will help you build the show you are looking for.  Whether its just a few items to help celebrate a birthday, gender reveal or graduation, or you want to show off to all your friends and neighbors and have the loudest and most colorful show on the block, Captain Jim's is here to help!
