MARSHALL — Harbor Freight Tools has announced that it will be opening a new store in Marshall. The new store will be located at 1200 Susan Drive, near the Walmart Supercenter. Opening is expected this spring with an official opening date to be announced at a later time. 

Construction has already begun at the location. According to a press release issued this week by Harbor Freight Tools, the construction is using local workers and companies from the surrounding Marshall area. 

“We’ve been looking to open a location in Marshall 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.

Harbor Freight has over 25,000 associates and is one of the nation’s fastest growing retailers, opening two new stores every week. The store is expected to bring 25 to 30 new jobs to the community and is accepting applications on their website and search ‘Marshall, MN’.

“In addition to finding a great location, we were attracted by the availability of great associates in the Marshall area, and we look forward to having them join the Harbor Freight team,” said Feiler.

Harbor Freight Tools opened its first store in 1980 and has over 1,400 stores across the country. Harbor Freight says they will be introducing 800 new tools and accessories this year.
