Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 15, 2013 - Battery Giant celebrated the opening of their Chicago Battery Store in Washington Park with a Grand Opening event on November 9th. The store had many special guests on hand for the ribbon cutting, including Alderman John Arena (45th) and State Representative Rob Martwick. The event also doubled as a battery recycling drive that filled over 168 gallons of containers with used batteries.
In preparation for the event, Battery Giant reached out to local schools to collect used batteries and bring them to the store for the event, with the school that brought in the largest volume of batteries receiving a $500 donation back to the school. 10 schools signed up for the program and Hawthorne Scholastic Academy took the prize by filling 38 gallons of containers.
This franchise location is owned and operated by Dave Meyer. “The expanding need for batteries led me to open the store,” stated Dave Meyer. “The portable world we live in runs on batteries. When those batteries need to be replaced, Battery Giant is here to help.”
Battery Giant is a one stop shop for all of the local consumer’s battery needs, carrying thousands of battery products that range from hearing aid batteries to fork lift batteries. The location is also an authorized Fisher Price Power Wheels Service Agent, certified to work on all children’s Power Wheels toys.
