After just a year in business, the local franchisee for Batteries Plus is opening a second store in Camillus.
Thomas Ruhlman opened his 2,400-square-foot store on Erie Boulevard in DeWitt in September 2006. He will open a second location, a 1,550-square-foot shop at 5310 W. Genesee St. in Camillus, in November.
Ruhlman says he chose Camillus for the new store because its location to the west of DeWitt will allow him to cover much of Onondaga County. It’s also close enough that the stores will benefit from joint marketing, he adds.
The staff will probably grow from its current total of 5 to 7 or 8, says David Ferguson, store manager.
