Batteries Plus Bulbs has opened its 34th Central Florida location in Clermont.
Owner Joe Kasper said he’s been getting good response from people who say they have had a hard time finding special batteries and bulbs.
“I’ve had trouble finding certain size batteries for items I own and, if that happens, you just have to go without them,” said shopper Jean Rhubin. “What’s especially nice is that this store also has watch batteries. We go through a lot of watch batteries, and let me tell you, they are hard to find around here.
Batteries Plus Bulbs is in a 1,700-square-foot Clermont location at 1120 State Road 50 in Clermont, next to Fedex/Kinko’s.
Kasper is a seasoned Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise owner, making the Clermont store the 11th on his roster, including others in Brandon, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Kissimmee, Lakeland, Ocala, Tampa, Winter Haven and two in Orlando.
“Florida has been wonderful to my business over the years, and I couldn’t be happier with another opportunity to bring our breadth of products, services, expertise and helpful advice to the Clermont community,” Kasper said.
Batteries Plus Bulbs stores offer thousands of batteries for devices including watches, cars, golf carts, digital cameras, laptops and cell phones, as well as hard-to-find batteries for old toys and novelty or obscure devices. The Clermont store also assembles, tests, conditions and designs custom battery packs for rechargeable household and business-to-business products.
Kasper is working with t he South Lake Chamber of Commerce to set up a date and time for a formal ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration.
