Pet owners, The Warehouse have finally listened to you.

The Warehouse has announced that they will no longer be selling fireworks, having listened to their customers and the community.

Chief product officer Tania Benyon said the sale of fireworks no longer held true to The Warehouse values.

"Like any of our product ranges, we assess them and we and make changes accordingly," she said.

The company said the decision to discontinue the sale of fireworks was driven by customer research, which showed that more than half of those surveyed preferred to attend public fireworks displays than have fireworks at home.

 "Feedback from our customers shows that while many are supportive of public fireworks displays to mark special events across the year, Guy Fawkes has become less of an occasion, and there are clear concerns about people letting off fireworks at home.

Many people have praised the decision made by the company, and have even asked for the permanent ban of private firework sales too.

"Great news! Let's hope other retailers do the same thing" one said, while others also made reference to safety concerns with fireworks.
