If you run a small retail business, such as a corner shop or general store, you may be wondering if you should stock general purpose batteries. An increasing number of portable devices feature built-in rechargeable batteries, so you may be concerned that you’d have difficulty selling conventional general purpose batteries. While these concerns are understandable, we can assure you that you don’t really have any reason to worry. As one of the biggest wholesale battery suppliers in the UK, we know that the Great British public still needs a steady supply of general purpose batteries. If your business doesn’t stock them, you may be missing out on significant profits.

We were founded in 1992, before built-in batteries became commonplace, and we’ve grown progressively stronger and larger as a business ever since. It’s a common misconception that general purpose batteries are no longer as prevalent as they used to be. In reality, they still account for a huge amount of power-usage in the United Kingdom.

While it’s true that portable music players and phones no longer use general purpose batteries, many devices still do. TV remotes, electronic toys, torches and a huge array of personal gadgets all depend on good old-fashioned AA and AAA batteries. What’s more, British society has become increasingly technological and computerised since the beginning of the 21st century. As a result, there are more of these devices around than at any previous point in history. Britain’s need for batteries hasn’t decreased at all, despite the evolution of built-in batteries. In fact, it would be fair to say that the UK public require more batteries than ever.

Running a small retail business is all about meeting the needs of the local populace. If you can offer much-needed general purpose batteries at an affordable price, you can bring in substantial amounts of additional revenue and grow your business.

Here at House of Batteries, we are proud to say that we can provide low-cost batteries in bulk. This means that you can develop your business by selling them onto your customers at a price they can afford. Britain needs batteries, so don’t be afraid to supply them.
