The store is located at 2222 S. Main Street.
“With the success of our stores in Kalamazoo and Coldwater, we are excited to bring the quality and dependability of the Interstate Batteries brand to Ann Arbor,” Jeff said. “Our company has a proven history of providing exemplary customer service and the best battery products available. We saw a need with the tech-savvy community in Ann Arbor and thought Interstate All Battery Center would be a good fit.”

“I became introduced to Interstate with my wife’s family’s distributorship in the Chicagoland area more than 25 years ago,” Jeff said. “Erin and I opened our first Interstate All Battery Center in Kalamazoo in 2001, then our Coldwater location in 2004. Now, my son will be heading up our Ann Arbor operations. It’s an amazing opportunity for my family. And with our success, we believe it’s important to give back to the community that supports our business. Here in Ann Arbor, we have partnered with the Back Door Food Pantry.”
