Founded by the father and son pair Allan and Eric Smidt, Harbor Freight Tools started out as a small mail-order tool company in 1977. In the beginning, they established themselves as “Harbor Freight Salvage” in a small building in California; it wasn’t until the mid 1980’s that they adopted their modern name, “Harbor Freight Tools.” Gradually growing in success, the equipment retailer soon relocated their headquarters from North Hollywood to Camarilloーsimultaneously acquiring another large mail-order business called Unity. Harbor Freight opened this first physical store in 1980; located in Lexington, Kentucky, its purpose was to sell returned merchandise and goods from its mail-orders. Proving to be prosperous, the company later began opening more locations across the United States. To date, there are over 700 Harbor Freight locations in the country. A popular discount tool retailer, they sell a wide range of products in-store including power tools, engines, welding equipment, gas generators, and floor jacksーmost of which are also sold online.
Known for their bargain prices, Harbor Freight has participated in several Black Friday events in the previous yearsー2016 is no exception. In fact, they’ll be offering the lowest prices of the year this Thanksgiving season. If you’re a handyman who’s looking to replace a few tools from your garage, here’s your chance to do so without surrendering your entire wallet. According to their official Black Friday flyer, they will even be extending their normal store hours so that you will have more time to complete your shoppingーthey will be kicking off their sales event on Friday, November 25th, 2016 at 7AM. As with most amazing deals, quantities of items will be limited so be sure to shop early for the best selection. If you’d prefer to skip the crowds and stay home, you can also do your tool shopping online at HarborFreight.com.
