Interstate All Battery Center is moving its west-side store to NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize Road.

“It’s a visibility issue,” says Mike Primm, operations manager. “This will be quite a bit more visible.”

The store currently is in 850 square feet at 2130 N. Tyler Road, near the intersection of 21st and Tyler.

Interstate is taking the north half of the former At the Beach space, which is 1,500 square feet.

“It’s quite a bit larger than where we’re at right now,” Primm says.

Slawson Cos., the NewMarket developer, is working on a deal for the other half of the space.

Interstate sells batteries for watches, cellphones, medical devices and cars, among other things.

“We do it all,” Primm says.

The Tyler site will be open until April 30. The NewMarket Interstate store will open on May 2.
