Harbor Freight Tools to open Adrian store in September


Harbor Freight Tools, a California-based retailer of discount tools and equipment, will open a store in Adrian this fall.

A company representative reached via Facebook confirmed that the store, at 1366 S. Main St., is projected to have a soft opening on Sept. 15, with a grand opening celebration scheduled for Sept. 30. It will occupy the north part of the former Hobby Lobby building in Crossroads Plaza; the south part is now home to Planet Fitness.

According to CommPros, the real estate management company that owns Crossroads Plaza, the space is just short of 22,000 square feet.

The store is hiring for a variety of full-time and part-time jobs. Available positions can be viewed on the company’s website, where applications can also be submitted. South Central Michigan Works began two days of open interviews for jobs at Harbor Freight today (July 21), with additional interviews from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Harbor Freight Tools was founded in 1977 and operates over 600 stores.
