Lawnton Battery World’s David Atkinson could be forgiven for beating his own drums – after all he is a former Air Force musicians.
In fact this dynamic franchise entertained troops in Iraq and Afghanistan only months before opening in first Battery World store in Sydney’s Penrith.
David has been wanting to move to Queensland for some time so when the Lawnton store became available he jumped at the chance.
Before his time with the air force David was an electrician so uses his prior expertise to help customers with their battery needs. David loves being able to fix people’s problems and give them a solution to their power issues and troubles. David is also a Dad to seven kids so knows how important it is to get the best value out of your appliances – so a new battery for that old cam corder or existing phone, so more than understands you don’t want to spend more money upgrading when he has the right battery to do the job.
Lawnton Battery World has a strong commitment to the local community though sports sponsorship, school and in-store recycling for all types of disused batteries.
