“We’re ready to serve and deliver value to customers in Neosho and all of Newton County,” said

Jon Buffington, store manager. “At Harbor Freight, we recognize that now, more than ever, our

customers depend on Harbor Freight for the tools they need to get the job done at an

affordable price. We are the place for quality tools at the lowest prices for mechanics,

contractors, homeowners and hobbyists—any tool user who cares about value.”

The store will stock a full selection of tools and accessories in categories including automotive,

air and power tools, storage, outdoor power equipment, generators, welding supplies, shop

equipment, hand tools (which come with a lifetime warranty) and much more. At 14,500-

square-feet, the stores are much easier to shop than the huge home centers.

During the COVID-19 crisis, all Harbor Freight stores have implemented more frequent cleaning

and are following the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control, including social distancing

to protect the health and safety of our customers and associates. Any individual who has any

COVID-19 symptoms is asked to shop on our website, www.harborfreight.com rather than in

our stores.

Company Background

Harbor Freight Tools was founded in Southern California in 1977, when 17-year-old Eric Smidt

began transforming his father’s small sales business into a successful mail order company. That

first year, Eric cut out the middlemen and sourced tools directly from the factories, realizing

that if he could buy tools directly for less, he could pass the savings on to the customer.
