New skoolie w/question: Where to buy new batteries?

Hello, I am going to look at a bus soon that needs new batteries. It's a 1998 Bluebird. If I get the bus where's the best place to buy batteries???

(I paid a mechanic to chk out the bus. He jumped it and drove it and said everything looks good. Just needs batteries.)

I bought new batteries for my bus from my local auto parts store (Napa). A decent auto parts store should carry the battery that you need - just bring in the old core so they can figure out what size you need.

Yep, NAPA. Batteries anymore are pretty much made by the same manufacturer.

Sams carries a lot of bigger commercial batteries but don't have a very good warranty
