Frequently Asked Questions:
What’s the gimmick with the $3 watch batteries?
None! It is not a money maker but a very clever way of getting you to visit our shop. You get a great deal and get to see what we are all about… it is very inexpensive advertising for us. By the way, the $3 for the battery is for a brand NEW battery. It also includes installation and state sales tax!
