Congratulations to Battery Specialists, Route 125 and Boulevard Road, on being chosen for “Co-Business of the Month” for September, by the Beardstown Chamber of Commerce.
Joe Osmer, pictured above, purchased the business on October 1, 1991 and this honor has fallen on his 22nd Anniversary of owning and operating from the same location. Prior to 1991, Joe was operating business out of the 9th and Wall location where he did complete car detailing, towing, and ice. Battery Specialists have batteries for virtually everything as well as a large inventory of starters and alternators, both foreign and domestic. Osmer sells and repairs a large selection of name brand tires, offers oil changers and minor automotive repair. Joe has built these services around his 24-hour towing and recovery business which is approved by all major motor clubs, including AAA. He also prides himself in offering the area’s largest hydraulic tow truck with under-reach. Joe Osmer can be reached at 217-323-5566. Joe states, “We accept VISA and Mastercard, and yes we still make house calls!”
