A fresh start on North Main

 

continued

The DeLaTorres have boxes of loose batteries they sell for fifty cents each. They also rebuild batteries for devices like cordless tools. While such batteries are typically rechargeable, they eventually wear out. It's often cheaper to rebuild the battery than buy a new one-or a new tool. The brothers even custom-build batteries, like the one they just built to spec for the University of Michigan's Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering Department. It's a special waterproof battery designed to power a floating research buoy.

Everything Battery is a couple of doors down from the children's resale shop Grow With Me. Their hours are roughly the same, too, and Tom jokes about cross-promoting the two businesses. "Who needs batteries more than parents with children?" he asks.

Everything Battery, 25 Jackson Industrial Dr. 585-5457. Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Sun. hours uncertain.    (end of article)
