A new Batteries Plus opened in Los Lunas on Saturday. It is the national chain’s sixth location in the state.

The franchise is locally owned and operated by two brothers, Keith and Kevin McDonald. For the past 17 years, Kevin McDonald has run his general contracting business, Tartan Construction.

Keith McDonald, who brings his retail experience to Batteries Plus, said he first came into contact with Batteries Plus when his brother was putting up a sign for the chain’s Rio Rancho Location.

“Next thing you know, we’re opening our own store,” McDonald said.

The store offers everything from car batteries to phone batteries, as well as automotive and technology services.

McDonald said he and his brother want to provide superior, friendly service at Los Lunas.

“We are from this community,” McDonald said. “…We want our clients to feel like family.”
