Harbor Freight Tools coming to Salisbury

Harbor Freight Tools, the California-based tool retailer, is opening a location on East Innes Street this summer.

The store will be next to the Big Lots and Office Depot, commonly called Innes Street Station, between Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Arlington Street. Currently, contractors are working on the space that will house Harbor Freight.

A crew supervisor said the store is aiming for a July 1 opening.

The store sells a large variety of hand and power tools and everything in-between: automotive tools, lawn and garden equipment, engine and generators.

The Salisbury location is currently hiring. Jobs can be viewed and applied for at www.hftcareers.com.

The company has over 600 stores in 46 states and employs over 11,000 people in the U.S. A store is located in the Cloverleaf Shopping Center in Kannapolis.
