BUY FIREWORKS PERMIT BEFORE YOU SHOP

There are new regulations in force for purchasing fireworks in the District of North Vancouver.

Customers MUST purchase a fireworks permit BEFORE they buy fireworks. 

This year all permits must be purchased through the District of North Vancouver from their website.

There will be a short multiple choice quiz that you must pass before your permit application is approved. 

Unfortunately, Thomas FX will no longer be able to sell you a fireworks permit in our store like we have in the past. 

The permit fee is still $2.00, but this year customers only need to purchase ONE PERMIT. Please have your permit in hand each time you purchase fireworks.

In our store you will show us your permit, we will record your permit number, and you will be asked for two pieces of photo ID.

We still have people available to help you to place your orders. 

We have set up a free WiFi site in the store, and have QR codes available that will connect you with the DNV fireworks permit page, and also with the Mystical Distributing website where you can view videos of individual fireworks items.

While the District of North Vancouver fixes the bugs in its new system, we ask that you be patient with all concerned.

If you have a permit in hand BEFORE you visit our store, everything should be much quicker than it was last year.

Will My Order Arrive Before Halloween?

Will My Order Arrive Before Halloween . . . seems to be the question of the day.

How soon your order is delivered is up to you.

Unless there is a problem with credit card authorizations, or incomplete shipping information, we are shipping all online orders the day that we receive them.

The Thomas FX website is connected directly with FEDEX, and also with Canada Post. The shipping costs are calculated and assigned to your orders by FEDEX and Canada Post.

If you prefer speedier delivery for your order, we suggest you choose the FEDEX option that will most quickly get your order to you in time. Choosing postal service at this late stage is probably not the best shipping option. 

As we get closer to Halloween, the time frame for delivery will begin to close and shipping will become more expensive so order as soon as possible to save money on shipping.

For example, the most economical shipping options, FEDEX Ground and Postal Service, are no longer viable options. We suggest you choose FEDEX Express, or FEDEX Expedited now to ensure delivery before Halloween.

It's Time To Lighten Up and Have Some Fun

In many ways, 2014 has been an interesting year.

War in Israel . . . War in Palestine . . . War in Syria . . . War in Lybia . . . Strikes and the threat of more strikes . . . Economic Recessions around the world . . . Governments being overthrown . . . Public protests in China . . . and now, EBOLA!

If you think the world is going to end, or if you are afraid of dying in a global pandemic, there is probably not much you can do about any of the macro challenges in the world today. 

So why not stop worrying? I think it is time for everyone to lighten up and have some fun.

It is Halloween! Relax and enjoy the season.
