We are committed to continue to provide the same quality service that you have come to expect from us no matter what is going on in our world.  We have decided to keep the same business hours at this time and no employees will be allowed on site at the first sign on illness.  We also have hand sanitizer available at the front counter for employee and customer use.  

We know many people would rather not leave their homes at this time unless absolutely necessary.  During this time we have decided to reduce our shipping fees.  All orders over $25 will ship for free!

Updated Store Hours:

Monday-Friday 7:30AM - 5:30PM

Saturday 10:00AM - 2:00PM

About Us:

Although we do have a fairly new location and now a new website, we have been serving the greater Roanoke Valley for nearly 80 years.  H.C. Baker Sales Co. was incorporated in 1939 and located at 19 Franklin Rd SW in beautiful downtown Roanoke from the time of incorporation until January of 2017.  The current owner Alan Sowder has been with the company since 1981 and still runs the day to day operation with his son Chris.  In October 2007, Alan and Chris decided to open a second location of the store inside of Tanglewood Mall and picked a new name for this second store which was Star City Batteries.  After 78 years downtown and over 9 years in Tanglewood Mall we decided to move the two stores back under one roof at our current location in early 2017.  We finally have our very own parking lot and we are only seconds off of I-581 for customer convenience.  

Success! Message received.
