Owning a retail business has many challenges from managing inventory, personnel and cash flow to digital marketing and managing equipment. Even if you’re not directly involved in those certain responsibilities, you need to be familiar with them to ensure that they’re running their best.
Something that several of our clients did not anticipate was having to maintain their equipment, especially the need for purchasing, installing and testing replacement batteries for some of their gear.
“Who knew that barcode scanners run out of batteries every once in a while. And who knew that when that battery ran out and you don’t have a backup that you can’t actually operate said scanner”
Many of these features you learn on the go and then you realize how much you relied either on those batteries or on power in general when storms bring down the grid and your computer system goes. Then you buy a UPS device and you’re good for a while. Then you realize that the UPS device also has a backup battery that kicks in when the power goes out and if the battery has outlived its shelf life you’re nearly back to square one.
For other retail stores, replacement batteries are part of their business. For those who sell equipment like ride-on-toys, motorcycles or power tools, having an inventory of replacement batteries can potentially be a revenue generator but also reflects a strong customer care environment.
How Can BatteryClerk Help Retail Stores?
Our wholesale replacement battery program allows businesses to buy their replacement batteries in bulk, giving them a little break on pricing so they can upsell as well as have a decent amount of inventory available when required.
“For our business, having access to a decent sized inventory of replacement batteries has been incredibly convenient and has taken an added step out of our customer service process. Instead of having to wait a couple of days for the battery, we have a lot on hand and can take care of it straight away. We love the product, the price point and the service from BatteryClerk”
BatteryClerk has made it easy to sign up for a wholesale account and our reps are very responsive. Keep in mind that not everyone qualifies for a wholesale account but generally we find that if you own a retail store, you need a decent supply of batteries.
Our retail clients range from computer stores and hardware shops to motorcycle and ATV/UTV shops and all are incredibly active purchasers of our products so we’re always happy to welcome more. We cover a fairly wide range of replacement batteries so having a one-stop-shop for all your products certainly adds another level of convenience. Sign up.
