Harbor Freight Tools, America’s go-to store for quality tools at the lowest prices, will officially open its new store in Pekin, IL on Saturday, August 12 at 8 a.m. The Pekin store, located 3455 Court Street, will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Over 75 million customers, from professional contractors and technicians to homeowners and hobbyists, come to Harbor Freight to find the tools and equipment they need to get the job done. The company has a world-class team of engineers and experts in all tool categories to ensure that its tools meet or exceed industry standards and deliver unsurpassed value.
The 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 and much more. The stores are smaller and much easier to shop than the huge home centers.
This new store is the 43rd Harbor Freight Tools store in Illinois. The company, which hires locally, has brought between 25-30 new jobs to the surrounding community.
Harbor Freight recognizes that its people are key to its success and was recently certified as a “Great Place to Work™”. In 2023, Forbes Magazine recognized Harbor Freight as one of the top 20 large employers in all of retail and one of the country’s top employers for Veterans for the third consecutive year as well as a top employer for women and for diversity.
The company was also recognized for its commitment to diversity and inclusion by Diversityjobs.com.
“Our team is ready to serve and deliver value to customers in Pekin and all of Tazewell County,” said Michael Morris, Store Manager. “At Harbor Freight, we recognize that now, more than ever, our customers depend on us for the tools they need to get the job done at an affordable price.”
