Batteries Plus - A Proven Concept With Multiple Revenue Streams

Retail

As "America's Battery Experts", we offer private label and national-brand batteries for computers, cell phones, camcorders, toys, watches, vehicles, and hundreds of other consumer products.

Batteries Plus offers convenient, one-stop shopping for all consumer power needs. In fact, large retailers often refer their customers to Batteries Plus for hard-to-find batteries.

Commercial

Businesses have a growing need for batteries - in fact, commercial or wholesale business can account for as much as 50% of the gross sales of a Batteries Plus store. We offer commercial customers expert advice, a full line of batteries, personal service, open account billing and convenient, on-time delivery.

Tech Center

An on-site Tech Center differentiates Batteries Plus from other sources of supply. Capabilities include custom battery pack assembly and the testing, conditioning and rebuilding of battery packs for many common and uncommon tools and appliances.

National Accounts

Our National Accounts program offers a streamlined approach for nationwide companies to work with a single-source battery supplier. The program eliminates unnecessary layers of distribution in the supply chain allowing the best combination of product availability, speed of delivery, and simplicity in ordering and purchasing. We cater our services to a company's needs to maintain current accounts and continually attract new businesses to this program.

Ecommerce

Our e-commerce site offers more than 900 items that customers can purchase from their homes. The site includes an efficient checkout process, customer management, wish list capabilities, online order history, and an easy reorder process. The Store Locator is a key feature to increase store visibility, provide address location with an interactive map, hours, driving directions, and in-store coupons. Not only does the e-commerce site drive more foot traffic to the stores, it also provides an outlet for new customers to learn about us. It's just another way we connect customers to our products!

All five revenue sources provide a diverse customer base resulting in a steady stream of repeat business for the Batteries Plus franchisee whose store is properly marketed, merchandised and managed.
