Fireworks for sale in South Whitley 
By TRSmith
The building at 127 S. State St. between the Subway Restaurant and Pizza Stop in South Whitley is temporarily occupied by Sky Rocketz Fireworks where novelty items, like sparklers, tanks and fountains and firecrackers, to bottle rockets and Roman candles to big units like artilery shells in a variety of sizes and 500 gram cakes can be purchased for extra fun during the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
The store is managed by Mike Mast and Matt Bunyan, who also own Portside Pizza in Tri Lakes, North Manchester and Wolf Lake. The store will close shortly after the holiday.
“We like it,” Mast said of the fireworks business. “I’d like to sell them year ‘round, like pizza. There’s a lot to do in a short period of time.”
Mast and Bunyan got into the fireworks business when they purchased the North Manchester Pizza Co, which came with a fireworks store. Coupons with great deals are available on page 6 of today’s Tribune-News.
