chooey98,

there seem to be lots of uncooperative jewelry stores around.

You can say that again!

Most of my watches do not have the teeny tiny little screws. you have to pry the back off somehow.

This was the impression I got at Wal-Mart: If the back was pry-off-able, they would replace the battery, but if the back needed to be unscrewed, they would not replace it. I was incredibly peeved, because they were selling watches which needed to be unscrewed to replace the batteries, and then would not service them. I've never had this problem before... for years I'd get watch batteries replaced for little or no fee at the store where I bought the watch. This experience was a first for me! Replacing a watch battery should not involve trips to multiple stores.... grmble...
