Batteries + Bulbs: Couple energized by new business venture

MUHLENBERG TWP., Pa. - A night of watching television inspired a couple from the Pottstown area to change their lives.

Shane and Kathy Young are preparing to open the first Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise in Berks County. The store is located on the North Fifth Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township.

The couple sold their home heating oil business. They said they were looking for something new when the idea came to them.

"We had always been looking for a franchise, but didn't know what interested us," said Shane Young. "So, one day I came across this on a TV show called "How the Lottery Changed My Life," and the guy invested in Batteries Plus franchises."

The store's grand opening is next Monday.
