I have to change watch batteries at work (non-chain drug store) all the time. We only charge for the battery: usually $3.20. If the watch still doesn't work with a new battery, we put the old one back in and it's no charge. You might want to call around to non-chain drug stores and ask, although this might be something only our store does.

Then again, changing watch batteries is usually quite easy. What kind of back does it have on it? Are there six little indents along the edges? If there are, that's the hardest kind because you have to use a special wrench, adjust and line it up just right, and twist till your wrist hurts or you cut yourself.

If it's a flat back without the indents, look closely all around the edges for a little notch and slide a thin pocket knife blade under that. The bottom should pop right up, or you'll cut yourself.

Man, you'd think I'd get a raise for all the times I've cut myself just to sell a three dollar battery. ;)
