They expect the store to bring between 25 and 30 new jobs to the community, including Sales and Logistic Supervisors, Senior Associates, Sales Associates, and seasonal opportunities. Harbor Freight Tools offers a competitive starting rate and a best-in-class retail benefits package that includes robust health coverage and Thanksgiving and Christmas off.

About Harbor Freight Tools 

For over 40 years, Harbor Freight Tools has been America’s go-to source for affordable 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 thriving mail-order company, bypassing the resellers, dealing directly with factories, and passing the savings on to the customer.

The company opened its first store in 1980. Today Harbor Freight Tools has over 1,300 stores across the country, 25,000 associates, and more than 40 million customers who depend on Harbor Freight’s quality and value to earn a living, repair their homes and cars, and pursue their hobbies. With core values of excellence and continuous improvement, Harbor Freight Tools works to improve the quality of its products, and this year constantly will introduce more than 800 new tools and accessories. As a result, Harbor Freight Tools is one of the nation’s fastest-growing retailers, opening two new stores weekly.
