Originally founded by Don Kotula in the mid 1970’s, Northern Tool + Equipment had its beginnings as “Northern Hydraulics”- a small hydraulics store which Kotula ran from his garage. Selling various items such as valves and cylinders by mail, the business slowly began to grow; as they did, they began adding more products into their inventory such as air compressors, water pumps, and other tools. Carrying on with the company for the next few years, the first physical store was eventually opened in Burnsville, Minnesota in 1981. Later launching their own manufacturing plant, they officially changed their name to the modern, Northern Tool + Equipment in 1998, to better reflect their choice of products. Since then, they have only grown more successful- to date, they sell thousands of different products including construction tools, electrical supplies, lighting, sporting goods, farm equipment, and more. As of 2016, the family-owned business operates over 80 locations across 17 states in the country.
Known for offering their customers more than reasonable prices for their products, it’s not surprising to know that Northern Tool + Equipment will be taking part in this year’s Black Friday event. According to their Black Friday flyer which has since been released online, they will be offering loads of savings for dozens of items, from pressure washers to golf carts- you name it. One of their biggest sales events of the year, Northern Tool + Equipment will be marking down their prices up to 65%- that’s a whole lot of money going back into your wallet. Although they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the stores will be opening their doors bright and early at 6AM on Friday, November 25th, 2016 for all your Thanksgiving shopping needs. Remember, most if not all of the items will be available on a limited basis so don’t wait until the last minute to head on out to the store!
One peek at their 2016 Black Friday ad scans has revealed a wide variety of hot buys- for instance, they will be offering 20% off on all Ironton Caster 4-packs and up to 60% off for a number of tools including a 100 piece screwdriver set. As an additional bonus, Northern Tool + Equipment will also be offering a free gift card with all online purchases over $100, should you opt to skip the lineups to shop in the comfort of your own home.
