new battery & intermittent starting

I came home a last night and the clk had been sitting in the garage for a few days. When I went to start it, it sounded as though the battery was weak. It turned over once and stopped. I turned the key off, tried it again and it started (this happened 2-3 times in the prior week). I then ran it out to the highway for about 30 minutes and put it on a battery "maintainer" over night.

This morning I go to the shop, they check it and say the battery is weak so I had them install a new one. Drove the car to the photo lab to pick up pictures and it did the same thing. Sounded as though the battery was dead, turned the key off and it started right up.

What gives?
