Since Ford stopped making them in 1974, the iconic Galaxie 500 has become not only increasingly collectible but also increasingly harder to start. At Batteries Plus, though, which operates under the mantra “Any battery. Any bulb. For anything,” brand-new Galaxie 500 batteries sit alongside models built for cameras, motorcycles, and power tools in an inventory that includes more than 40,000 different batteries. This commitment to stocking the latest models and those of yesteryear means that customers can buy external battery packs for every model of iPhone, replace brake lights on a 1980 Volkswagen Vanagon, or even pick up a Studebaker battery before realizing they don’t have a Studebaker and putting it back down.
Big things can grow from small beginnings. Just ask Zoe, the cartoon (and real) canine mascot of The Laptop Guy. The computer-repair shop began with a rented counter in a toy shop, where the company's founder and his dog sold laptops to passersby. His dedication to his customers and Zoe's playful nature brought in more and more customers, until the repair and sales shop could no longer fit next to the action-figure aisle. More than 10 years later, The Laptop Guy has grown into a multi-store business that solves customers' smartphone, Apple, Android, and PC issues with online support, in-house repairs, or onsite troubleshooting. Cartoon Zoe and her owner still greet customers on the company's website, and the real-life versions can be found in one of the repair shops on any given day.
