Harbor Freight Tools new store in BG expected to open this summer

Harbor Freight Tools has announced that it will be opening a new store at 1080 S. Main St., Bowling Green. The store is expected to open this summer.

Construction has begun at the location, using local workers and companies from the surrounding Bowling Green area.

“We’ve been looking to open a location in Bowling Green for a number of years so that we can provide the tools and equipment at tremendous values to the community,” said Trey Feiler, Senior Vice President, Real Estate and Construction for Harbor Freight Tools. “In addition to finding a great location, we were attracted by the availability of great associates in the Bowling Green area, and we look forward to having them join the Harbor Freight team.”

The store is expected to bring between 25 and 30 new jobs to the community, including sales and logistic supervisors, senior associates, sales associates, and seasonal opportunities as well. 

Harbor Freight Tools has more than 1,500 locations nationwide.

Interested applicants can apply online at www.harborfreightjobs.com/retail and search “Bowling Green, OH.”

Harbor Freight Tools is a family-owned company started in Southern California in 1977, when Eric Smidt began bypassing middlemen, working directly with factories, and passing the savings on to customers. The first store opened in 1980, and the company has grown to over 1,500 stores nationwide. 

Harbor Freight has been recognized by Forbes as one of the 20 best large companies to work for in retail for four years in a row, one of the nation’s best employers for veterans and one of 20 best large companies for women to work for in retail.

Harbor Freight Tools locations are open seven days a week, Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
