Volunteers Needed

The manpower needed to run the stand is somewhat massive. We need all the volunteers we can muster to make the stand run smoothly to be a success. That means we need your help to volunteer to man the stand. Even if you can only help out one or two hours a day, that could allow a volunteer some time to grab a meal or a short respite. Any time you can give would be very helpfull and appreciated.

June 28 Stand Setup

We can begin selling fireworks at noon on June 28. We have our stand inspection scheduled for 11:30am that day. While the stand does not need to be 100% setup at that time, we do however need all signage and at least one of each firework must be on display for the inspection.
This is the reason we start setting up at 9:00am on the 28th.

July 2 Block Party

On July 2nd we will host a block party where we provide free food to customers and a free fireworks show!

July 5th

If we still have product after close July 4th, the stand will be open on July 5th from 9:00am to around noon, or whenever we sell out. July 5th is a special sale day where all the remaining product is disounted an additional 40%.

Sales Tips

Offering Discounts

Do not immediately offers customers the available discounts. Use it as an up-sell tool. For example a customer comes to the stand on June 29 and thier purchase amount is $89.00...Let them know that if they spend over $100.00 they are eligible for at 20% discount though the month of June.
Remember only the approved discounts can be given and must be recorded in the POS.

Customers asking for the best price or better discount

Let the customers know that DFS products are already discounted 20-45% from our competitors similar products. Also let them know, we are a non-profit fundraiser.

We accept Credit and Debit Cards

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover card as payment. In addition we accept Debit Cards if they have a Visa or Master Card logo on them.

Efficient Use of time with Customer

The stand can get very busy at anytime. Do not spend a lot of time with the small counter items. Attempt to upsell an assortment and a finale.
