Grand Opening in Hickory, NC!

March 18, 2013 – Harbor Freight Tools continues to expand with new tool stores across the country, providing incredibly low prices at convenient locations. New Harbor Freight stores are sprouting up with unprecedented frequency– especially in these tough economic times– and there’s no slowing down in sight!  This Wednesday, March 20, at 8:00 a.m., the doors will swing wide at the newest Harbor Freight Tools location– this time in Hickory, NC!

“We are very excited to be opening the 14th Harbor Freight Tools store in North Carolina and look forward to being a member of the Hickory community,” said Eric Smidt, President of Harbor Freight Tools. “Our business model is simple: earn our customers’ business by offering quality tools at ridiculously low prices. In difficult economic times, our Business and Do-It-Yourself customers are more cost-conscious than ever and Harbor Freight is here to help. Our tools are made in the same factories as many of the high-priced famous brands, but we cut out the middleman and sell them at a fraction of the price.”

The Hickory store, located in the Valley Crossing Shopping Center at 2104 US Highway 70 SE, will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:00am, hosted by the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce.

“I would like to welcome Harbor Freight Tools as a new Shareholder in the Chamber and are very proud they have chosen Hickory as one of their newest locations. We would like the community to stop by and welcome one of the nations’ largest tool and equipment retailers. We wish them great success and we will make every effort to make their transition to the Hickory area a success so they can prosper and grow in our community for years to come”, states Danny Hearn, IOM, CCE, President, Catawba County Chamber of Commerce.
