“At Harbor Freight, we’re passionate about providing our customers with the tools they need to get the job done, and always at an affordable price. We look forward to welcoming auto technicians, contractors, woodworkers, homeowners, hobbyists—anyone who needs affordable tools.”

The 15,000-square-foot store has a stock of tools and accessories including automotive, air and power tools, storage, outdoor power equipment, generators, welding supplies, shop equipment and hand tools.

The family-owned company started in Southern California in 1977 when 17-year-old Eric Smidt transformed his father’s small phone sales business into a successful mail-order company.

The company opened its first store in 1980, and today Harbor Freight Tools has nearly 1,000 stores across the country, 20,000 employees and more than 40 million customers.
