July is National Independent Retailer Month!

According to, “Independent Retailer Month is a shop local event that runs annually throughout July encouraging consumers to shop at independent retailers….. and use July as a time to celebrate the independent retailers that help build our economy; creating more sustainable cities, towns and communities.”  While national/big box retailers have a lot of items to choose from (one-stop shopping, anyone?), it is the independent stores that have hard-to-find and one-off items you need! Plus, we’re usually a lot friendlier and more fun to be around!

While Tennessee Battery provides known brands (DEKA, Trojan, Duracell, etc), we usually have the harder to find product either in stock or can quickly get it in stock. For example, watch batteries and other small button cells, power tool batteries that AREN’T lithium (new in the box or we can rebuild them), and specialty battery packs for different applications.

So! Visit your locally-owned, independent retailer — not just in July! — and help grow your community and city while getting the battery you need at a competitive  price!  #indieretail

June is International Mud Month!!

“There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.”
Carl Sandburg

Tennessee Battery has all kinds of batteries to power your next trip outdoors. Whether you need a small button cell, cell phone, or batteries for your boat or RV, stop by and see what we can do for you. Start enjoying your summer with fresh batteries for all your electronics or vehicles, no matter how large or small. We also have solar chargers to make it easier to KEEP your batteries charged while enjoying the fun outside.
