A standalone fireworks store is proposed for the former QuikTrip location on Riverside Parkway near Lawrenceville. 

2 standalone fireworks stores proposed in Gwinnett

Last July, consumer fireworks sales officially became legal in Georgia -- and now, at least two national companies are hoping business will blow up in Gwinnett. 

Two different standalone fireworks outlets are on the agenda for the Gwinnett County Planning Commission's April 13 meeting

One store is proposed for 2110 Riverside Parkway, a former QuikTrip location just outside Lawrenceville city limits. TNT Fireworks hopes planning commissioners will agree that repurposing the 4,000 square-foot building will fit in with the "intense commerical activity in the area" and grant its special use permit.

The other store is proposed for a 4,000 square-foot site near the corner of Pleasant Hill Road and Satellite Boulevard in Duluth, across the street from Gwinnett Place Mall. In its special use permit, Indiana-based company USA Fireworks notes it is "currently opening stores throughout Georgia."
