Closest Place to buy Fireworks?

I am tossing the idea around of going to get some good fireworks for tomorrow - where is the closest place? I live in Acworth so i am closer to TN - are their any differences between AL, TN, or SC Fireworks?

Definitely go to Shelton!! They have the best deals and just throw a bunch of stuff in your bag when you're checking out. Not sure which would be closer to you, but there's on just over the Alabama border and on just over the South Carolina border. Not sure if they're the closest, but if they're not, they're probably worth the extra few miles.

Sheltons is the BOMB! Get it? I've been there and it's great. Take at least $150 to get some good stuff.

I just hate that Georgia is surrounded on all sides by states that allow fireworks and we don't. Not to mention the stupid Sunday blue laws, but even the Carolinas are behind us on those.
