Business is booming with Batteries + Bulbs

California, MD- St. Mary’s is quickly growing and it’s evident by the new stores that recently opened their doors at St. Mary’s Marketplace.

One of those stores is Batteries + Bulbs. John and Patty Ray are the new franchise owners. John is a Navy veteran and practicing attorney. The couple discussed the idea of owning and operating a business and they felt the Batteries + Bulbs franchise would offer something new to the area. “We didn’t have anything like this in Southern Maryland,” Patty noted.

The name is just as it sounds, Batteries + Bulbs—but we’re not just talking about your typical AA batteries and 60 watt bulbs. “The store has items you can’t find anywhere else, like batteries for hearing aids and watches.” Patty explained.

When you wander through the store, you’ll find unique items like battery replacements for Power Wheels and batteries for a variety of cellular phones. “We had a woman come in with a 10 year old flip phone and we had the battery for it,” noted Patty.

Batteries for boats, cars, trucks, luxury cars, laptops, lawn and garden—you name it, they’ve got it. You’ll also find those hard to find specialty bulbs, energy efficient bulbs, and a variety of color and temperature options for both business and personal use.

Batteries + Bulbs also carries a full stock of chargers for cell phones, cars, computers and tablets to keep your devices operating at peak performance.

In addition to the merchandise, Batteries + Bulbs offers many other services such as cell phone screen repair, laptop repairs and key fob replacements. Is your charging port broken? No problem they’re expert technicians can take care of it.

Patty said come take a look around, you’ll be surprised by the selection. “Every day I walk around and notice something else that we carry. Stop by, I’m sure we have what you need.”
