Harbor Freight Tools, which operates more than 1,000 stores in the U.S., including its 36th store in Georgia set to open on Sept. 5, is giving back to the communities it serves.

In order to help protect healthcare workers caring for COVID-19 patients, the company recently donated its entire stock of nitrile gloves, N-95 masks and face shields to hospitals in every community served by a Harbor Freight Tools store.

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 customers and associates. Any individual can shop on the website, rather than in-person.

Harbor Freight’s new store in Cartersville, Ga., opens at 8 a.m. on Sept. 5. As a designated essential service, the store will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. It will begin regular hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday after the COVID-19 crisis has passed.


The company also is a major supporter of Harbor Freight Tools for Schools, an initiative of The Smidt Foundation, established by company’s founder Eric Smidt, to advance skilled-trades education in public high schools America. The program’s flagship initiative is the annual Harbor Freight Tools for Schools Prize for Teaching Excellence, which honors 18 public high school skilled trades teachers and their programs with $1 million in cash awards. This year’s winners will be announced in October 2020. For more information, visit harborfreighttoolsforschools.org.


Harbor’s new Georgia store will stock a full selection of tools and equipment 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 16,300-square-feet, the stores are much easier to shop than the huge home centers.

The store will bring 35 jobs to the Cartersville area; the company employs more than 20,000 workers nationwide.

"We’re ready to serve and deliver value to customers in Cartersville and all of Bartow County," said Kevin Cornett, Cartersville 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."
