MADISON HEIGHTS — Battery Giant, a retail battery store, has opened its sixth Michigan store in Detroit’s Harbortown area on Jefferson. The Detroit store joins other Michigan Battery Giant locations in Macomb, Warren, Rochester Hills, Southfield, and East Lansing.
“My commitment to Detroit has been everlasting and when the opportunity arose with Battery Giant, it only made sense to contribute to the existing energy that’s always been in Detroit, and is getting more powerful every day” says Chaundra Haynes, owner of the new store.
Haynes says the city of Detroit has seen an increase in development through major investors like Dan Gilbert and Mike Ilitch. Other businesses have taken note, and are investing in the city as well. “Battery Giant hopes to support the influx of young, tech gadget using talent that recent new development has brought into the city,” Haynes says.
The franchise owned store is part of a growing network of 27 locations throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Panama for the Madison Heights based retail franchise.
