Rising Tide Battery Station Opens in East Peoria

(EAST PEORIA, IL – August 26, 2021) – Cullinan Properties announces that Rising Tide Battery Station opened for business last Friday at EastPort Commercial Plaza, located on Route 116, near EastPort Marina, in East Peoria, IL.  The opening was celebrated with a joint ribbon cutting attended by the Greater Peoria Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce and opens through Cullinan’s Kickstart Program.

Specializing in vehicle, boat and RV batteries, Rising Tide also carries other outdoor gear, including paintball and fishing gear, camping products, pet accessories and seasonal clothing items. This location is the first for owner Rogelio Reteguin, who also operates Armani’s Towing in Peoria. He is eager to continue growing his business presence in Central Illinois. The owner has a passion for cars and enjoys spending his free time with family playing paintball, fishing and camping. This inspired him to open Rising Tide.

“I want this store to be a resource for outdoor enthusiasts. Opening Rising Tide will give locals and marina visitors a place to purchase batteries and supplies. My motto is ‘Hay que darle!’ or ‘Let’s do this!’ so I am excited to begin this journey!” stated Reteguin.
