Reno, NV (date May 10, 2017) – Basin Street Properties, a prominent Northern Nevada real estate investor and developer, has signed an expansion with Batteries Plus Bulbs for 1,391 square feet in its Coliseum Meadows Shopping Center.  This brings Batteries Plus Bulbs’ space to 3,489 square feet at its Coliseum Meadows location. “With our growing offering of bulbs and battery choices we needed the additional space to stock inventory and quickly respond to customer needs,” said Don Vergilio, Owner of Batteries Plus Bulbs.

Don Vergilio launched the first Northern Nevada Batteries Plus in 1999. He now has three Northern Nevada locations including Sparks, Carson City and the Coliseum Meadows. “Our product offering has continued to grow with client demand,” said Vergilio. “We started out just focused on car batteries, but over the years we have grown to handle most household batteries, chargers, phone repairs and light bulbs. Over the past 18 years we have grown with Northern Nevada and we’re proud to be a part of its success.”

“The Reno Coliseum Meadows continues to be an ideal location for Batteries Plus Bulbs,” said Dave Mieding, Director of Leasing for Basin Street Properties. “It is centrally located, easily accessible and the shopping center contains a variety of thriving businesses to complement Batteries Plus Bulbs and draw additional shopping traffic.”

Coliseum Meadows Shopping Center consists of 46,520 square feet of high-visibility Class A retail space situated in the center of Reno’s retail hub and in close proximity to five major retail centers.
