Major supermarket bans popular bonfire night item

HOUSEHOLDS looking to buy fireworks ahead of Bonfire Night may need to travel a little further than their local supermarket.

Sainsbury’s has once again banned the sale of fireworks from all of its stores.

Sainsbury’s has banned the sale of fireworks this year

The supermarket stopped selling fireworks a number of years ago – and won’t be offering them to customers again this year.

The move was sparked by concerns raised by charities that fireworks cause unnecessary distress to pets, wildlife and elderly people.

But Sainsbury’s isn’t the only retailer to put a ban on bangers.

We explain where you can – and can’t – buy fireworks this year.


Since 2019, Sainsbury’s has not sold any fireworks.

The ban came after more than 750,000 people signed a petition earlier that year to ban shops from selling fireworks.

It is claimed that big bangs and whizzes frighten pets – animal charity the RSPCA says that 45% of dogs show signs of fear when they hear the loud displays.


Lidl is selling all the big bangers you need on bonfire night.

The supermarket started offering fireworks in stores from today.

Prices range from £1.99 for sparklers to £49.99 for a pack of two fireworks.

Not all shops will be selling them though – it’s best to check ahead to see if your local store is offering them.

You can find where your nearest Lidl store is using the supermarket’s website.


Asda has confirmed to The Sun that it will be selling fireworks in its stores for bonfire night.

They have been in stores since October 15.

It’s selling boxes of sparklers for as little as 50p as well as boxes of large fireworks for £5.

It’s a good idea to check ahead with your local store to see if they have boxes available – you can find where your nearest one is using Asda’s store locator tool.


You can get your fireworks from Aldi this year.

The discount supermarket is selling normal fireworks, as well as a number of low noise options this year too.

All fireworks are labelled with a “volume rating”, so customers can pick and choose to buy quieter ones if they live with older people or have pets.

Aldi hasn’t listed which fireworks are available to buy in stores yet – but you can view the full range on its website.

Morrisons has been selling fireworks since October 31 in preparation for Bonfire Night.

Prices range from 50p for packs of sparkers to a whopping £65 for a box of multiple fireworks.

However, it’s best to check to see if you can pick up your package from your local store or whether you’ll have to go further.

You can get more information and check where your local store is using Morrison’s store locator tool on its website.


You won’t be able to buy your fireworks from M&S.

The retailer doesn’t sell fireworks across any of its stores.


Tesco hasn’t yet confirmed whether they will be selling fireworks this year.

You can check where your nearest Tesco store is – and if they’re selling fireworks – using the supermarket’s store locator tool.

We will update this article when we know more.

Meanwhile, we explain how you could be fined £5,000 or face prison for letting fireworks off at the wrong time.
