Business Battery business powers gift giving

Bring a favorite toy or tool back to life for the holidays with a custom-built or rebuilt battery pack from Batteries Plus of Chandler.

“Our battery experts can engineer a battery for almost any kind of appliance, toy or tool,” explains Paul Barstad of Chandler’s Batteries Plus. “When you share a tried-and-true classic toy with another generation of children, you also share the joy you felt when you played with that same toy in your childhood.” Along with custom batteries for razors and shavers, power tools, vacuums, small appliances, outdoor tools and lights, and toys of all kinds, Batteries Plus offers “useful stocking stuffers.”

“Replacement battery chargers for digital or video cameras, a cord organizer for laptops, or a hands-free device for cell phones that can be attached to the visor of a car are all really thoughtful choices,” says Barstad.

Batteries Plus of Chandler, located at 3014 N. Dobson Rd., has access to more than 40,000 types of batteries and accessories. For more information, call Barstad at 480-730-1103 or email

Homebuilder guarantees energy efficiency

Shea Homes now offers “energy guarantees” at its Foothills at Layton Lakes community in Gilbert. The Environments for Living (EFL) designation provides a two-year guarantee that the home won’t exceed specifi ed energy limits. If the home does underperform, homeowners will receive a full refund of the difference. To earn the EFL designation, Shea Homes underwent “a rigorous process” of ensuring that all building plans, products and systems were energy effi cient. Additional EPA Energy Star and Department of Energy Building Program qualifi cations were also met. “Becoming certifi ed for the EFL program made sense for us and our customers,” explains Ken Peterson, vice president of sales and marketing for Shea Homes. “Our homes are energy wiser, eco-friendlier, designed smarter and built better, and with this designation, we can guarantee a homeowners monthly energy bills. It’s a win- win.”

Dec. 18 - Jan. 7, 2011 21 Young entrepreneur opens business

At age 21, former Chandler resident Andrea Rispoli recently opened her own business, Beauty by Andrea.

She was on the “fast track” in high school, attending cosmetology school at the same time, according to a news release. She graduated from cosmetology school at the top of her class one night, and the next, from Corona del Sol High School. In one month, Rispoli passed the state boards and landed a job in a salon. An “extremely talented and determined business owner and hair stylist,” she developed an excellent reputation, according to a news release. The L’ANZA Company approached her and Rispoli is now the youngest L’ANZA Educator. Her client base grew from referrals and after only three years, she decided she could do it all on her own.

With “Look, Feel and Be Beautiful” as her motto, her clients remark on how she is “so dedicated and professional.” She continues to further her education, keeps up to date on all the latest trends and shares her knowledge about healthy hair care with her clients.

Her mother is Kim Rispoli of Chandler, who is the former director for LearningRx in Chandler.

Rispoli is accepting new clients at her salon, which is located at 9020 S. McClintock Dr., Suite 27 in Tempe. It is open Monday through Saturday by appointment by calling 480-204-1407.
