Local Batteries Plus Rebrands With "Bulbs"

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Batteries Plus has announced the rebranding of its Chattanooga store at 1925 Gunbarrel Road as Batteries Plus Bulbs. The store’s new identity is part of a company-wide initiative which began in late 2012 that signals its leadership in the expanding $17 billion U.S. light bulb replacement industry.  

Batteries Plus Bulbs has access to more than 15,000 light bulb products ranging from the common recessed lighting, track lighting, and energy-efficient options to specialized light bulbs for cars/trucks, healthcare equipment, aquariums and projectors.  

“Consumers can visit our store and get expert advice on energy consumption and ways to reduce it in their individual homes and offices,” said Todd Williams, store owner at the Chattanooga location. “Whether it’s replacing their current light bulbs with LEDs or other energy-efficient lighting options, we’ll help guide consumers through this confusing process, discuss lighting options, and help them find the light bulbs that are right for them.” 

Specialized business account programs are also available to fulfill large volume and energy-efficient lighting needs for businesses. To help businesses improve energy-efficient lighting standards, Batteries Plus Bulbs has partnered with local utility companies, which offer business customers rebate incentives to convert to more energy-efficient lighting.   

“Our lighting experts can come out to a business and conduct an on-site analysis, to provide advice on ways to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs in the workplace,” said Mr. Williams. “We’ll help businesses find the most cost-effective, energy-saving lighting options that are best for them. Furthermore, our business account program offers customers delivery and recycling services as well as multiple ordering and payment options, to help make the transition even easier.”

In addition to its lighting offerings, Batteries Plus Bulbs of Chattanooga offers thousands of batteries for thousands of devices, ranging from common items such as watches, cars/trucks, digital cameras, laptops and cell/smartphones to batteries for old toys and novelty or obscure electronic devices.
