Here at House of Batteries, we specialise in selling different types of batteries to the retail sector on a wholesale basis. In addition to general purpose batteries, we also sell rechargeable batteries and specialist batteries that are designed to work with particular tools or electronic devices. But which types of battery should your retail business stock? As you might expect, the answer depends on what type of business you run and who your core customers are. 

1. General purpose batteries

Every retail business should stock general purpose batteries; they are everyday household items and practically everybody uses them. So almost all retail businesses can sell these batteries reliably. Investing in them is, therefore, a great way to generate additional custom and revenue for your business. 

2. Rechargeable batteries

Rechargeable batteries are slightly more expensive than general purpose batteries, so not all consumers wish to purchase them. Stocking rechargeable batteries may not be worthwhile if you run a low-cost or discount-based business, such as a pound store or other budget shop. However, if you run a business that is situated in the middle or upper part of the retail market (for example, a boutique-style general store or even an ordinary grocery store), it’s probably wise to keep a modest stock of rechargeable batteries.

3. Specialist batteries

Very few types of retail business need to sell specialist batteries. After all, they are designed for specific types of devices and most ordinary consumers don’t need to buy them regularly. However, if your business sells electronic equipment or power tools that might require specialist batteries, your clientele are far more likely to need them. So if you run an electronics store or a hardware store, you should definitely stock specialist batteries alongside the equipment or devices that require them. 

Here at House of Batteries, we understand that every retail business is different. Whatever types of batteries your business needs to stock, we are ideally situated to supply them. Contact us today if you are interested in selling batteries in your store.
