Kirkby-based business County Battery is underway with the opening of a third branch.

The store sells a variety of items including batteries, golf buggies and mobility scooters and has just celebrated its 40th year in business.

Richard Fuller, County Battery, managing director, said: “This is our first move beyond the Nottinghamshire boundary with the opening of a new store in Ilkeston.

“We have been given a great welcome into the community which is wonderful.

“Our new branch is part of our bid to expand the business even further. We celebrated our 40th birthday last year and this has got 2015 off to a great start.

“All of our shops – this is our third – have been established with the aim of providing what people need, whether it’s to keep a watch ticking or wheels turning.”

Mayor of Erewash, councillor Kewal Singh Athwal, will cut a ribbon for the opening of the shop on Nottingham Road at 11.30am on 20th March.
