New Battery Shop Quietly Opens in Shamrock Plaza

The Batteries Plus shop has been open for about more than a month, a store employee said.

This isn't super-hard breaking news, but I know some residents on the western end of the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area don't often get to Shamrock Plaza, so it's probably news to them: a new battery and light bulb shop recently opened.

Batteries Plus, part of a nationwide chain, opened more than a month ago in the shopping center, which had been struggling with several vacancies for the last few years. (Still no signs of replacing the old Blockbuster at the end of the center next to Lawrenceville Highway.)

Batteries Plus, which operates more than 530 stores in 46 states and Puerto Rico, offers you a go-to place for all your battery and light bulb needs. And not just AA batteries and stuff like that, but laptop batteries, motorcycle batteries, ATV batteries, exit sign batteries, etc.

One of these opened within the last two years farther north on Lawrenceville Highway, but it'll be interesting to see if the community supports such a specific shop.

Do you think Batteries Plus is a good addition to the shopping center? What else would you like to see? Tell us in the comments section below.

Yes they are a great asset and the staff is friendly and helpful.

For years they were at Montreal and Lawrenceville Hwy. So, it's not new to the area. They simply moved down the road a bit. With everything dependent on batteries now days and some of them so limited in distribution, I think they will do fine there.

Also, Metro PCS moved in next door where the recently relocated AT&T store was.
