Every year, Memorial Day inspires us Americans to celebrate our precious freedom and commemorate the men and women of the United States Armed Services who have fought, and continue to fight, to preserve it.
It also marks the unofficial beginning of summer, a great time to gather with friends and family, and the first day you can wear your white pants again!
However you decide to exercise your freedom this weekend, we remind you to make sure you’re prepared to power-up all of your electronic devices and motors by going through your Memorial Day Power Checklist. Here are a few tips:
Like many of us, if you’re planning on spending time outside this weekend, be sure to check your supply of batteries, chargers, flashlights and lanterns. If you need to power up, don’t worry, Batteries Plus Bulbs has you covered. From common alkaline batteries for flashlights and lanterns; to cell phone batteries and chargers for those impromptu photo opps, tweets, or calls; to personal watercraft and marine batteries for some fun on the water, Batteries Plus Bulbs has it all! Also, don’t miss out on the phenomenal convenience of using hands-free headlamps for grilling-out after the sun goes down.
What batteries will you be using this weekend?
Batteries Plus Bulbs Supports Vets
Again, none of these holiday activities would be possible without the courageous service men and women who have fought to protect our great nation. Batteries Plus Bulbs is a proud supporter of the Armed Forces and, for the fourth consecutive year, was named a 2013 Military Friendly Franchise® by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs.
Batteries Plus Bulbs is also a participating member of the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran), a national program coordinated by the International Franchise Association (IFA) to help military veterans become franchise owners.
We welcome veterans to explore our franchise opportunities, and we offer a $10,000 discount off the initial franchise fee to qualified military veterans who purchase a franchise through the IFA’s VetFran program (offer not valid through 3rd party referrals and may not be available in all states). By joining us, veterans and civilians alike will have the opportunity to work in an exciting atmosphere with endless sales opportunities, driven by the growing consumer and business demand for batteries and light bulbs.
Find a store near you or visit BatteriesPlus.com to find all of these items and more! For more information on our veteran initiatives or owning a franchise, please visit the Batteries Plus franchise site.
