Hometown Battery energizing the Morris community

MORRIS – Hometown Battery is the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s most recent Business Spotlight.

Hometown Battery, 100 W. Commercial Dr. in Morris, was founded in 2011 as a franchise store from its Flagship location, Batteries and Things, located in LaSalle. Batteries and Things was formed in 2003 as a source for common and hard to find batteries, according to a news release. Through a direct relationship with manufacturers, Hometown Battery is able to offer all our products at exceptionally low prices. To serve you better as your “one stop battery shop” they have added power sport, cordless phone, digital camera, solar and sealed lead acid batteries, in addition to standard alkaline and super heavy duty batteries. In short, they stock just about every type of battery for consumer, professional, and industrial, use as well as carrying ink and toner cartridges, battery chargers and much more.
