The door handles/knobs/light switches/faucets, etc are wiped down with Clorox Wipes throughout the day, employees at the cash stands try to use gloves when handling money and stock, and as many preventative measures as we are able to perform.

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
