INEZ – Restrictions may have been reinstated for some Texas businesses, but Judy Garrison said the seven fireworks stands she owns in the Crossroads are busier than ever.

“People are ready to get out,” said Cindy Anderson, who manages one of Garrison’s stands, J&J Fireworks, on U.S. 87 at the entrance to Son Valley Ranch.

Fireworks stands opened June 24 and will remain open until midnight July 4. On Monday, Garrison said people, cooped up because of the pandemic and eager have already begun to stock up for neighborhood parties and backyard barbecues to celebrate the holiday with a bang.
