Harbor Freight Tools will officially open its new store in Delavan on Saturday, July 31 at 8 a.m. but began welcoming customers last week in what’s referred to as a soft opening, which features normal store hours.

The Delavan store, located at 1456 E. Geneva St., in a portion of the former Shopko building, is the 18th Harbor Freight Tools store in Wisconsin and brings approximately 25 to 30 new jobs to the community. The entrance is located on the Highway 50 side of the building.

“We’re ready to serve and deliver value to customers in Delavan and all of Walworth County,” said David Amariles, 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.”

The store has stocked 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 20,800-square-feet, the stores are much easier to shop than the huge home centers, according to company representatives.

Harbor Freight recently introduced the Harbor Freight Credit Card, which customers can apply for in-store and once approved, they can earn 10% off their first purchase, and 5% back on their future purchases in Harbor Freight Money to spend on anything in the store. Or, they can choose 0% interest with equal monthly payments on purchases of $299 or more.

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 its customers and associates. Any individual who has any COVID-19 symptoms is asked to shop on the website rather than in store.

The Delavan store is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call the local store at 262-394-3737 or visit harborfreight.com.
