CENTRE COUNTY, Pa (WTAJ) — Plans for a year-round fireworks store in Centre County have been approved.
The College Township Council unanimously approved final development plans for a Jake’s Fireworks location at 2000 E. College Ave.
Once open, the location will mark the first Pennsylvania retail location for Jake’s Fireworks, which is based in Kansas. There is currently a distribution warehouse for the company located in Pennsylvania.
“To take this location and take it from relatively under-used, to an active and viable retail sales location again, I think that was a pretty good development for the township,” said Mike Bloom, Assistant Township Manager for College Township.
The site was formerly home to a Sheetz.
The plan includes the 5000-square-foot space, as well as the installation of a parking lot and a new sidewalk.
