About Harbor Freight Tools

Harbor Freight Tools is a family-owned company that started in Southern California in 1977, when 17-year-old Eric Smidt began transforming his father’s small phone sales business into a successful mail order company, bypassing the resellers, dealing directly with factories, and passing the savings on to the customer.

The company opened its first store in 1980. Today Harbor Freight Tools has 1,100 stores across the country, 21,000 associates and more than 40 million customers. More than 600 new tools and accessories will be introduced this year alone. Harbor Freight Tools is one of the nation’s fastest growing retailers, opening two new stores every week.

Harbor Freight has several stores in central New York including Yorkville, Rome, Herkimer, Dewitt, Camillus, Oswego and Syracuse.
