At long last, Harbor Freight has announced the opening date for their new location in the Ne-Mar shopping center. Their doors will be opening to the public on May 26.

“We offer a little bit of everything for everybody,” said Store Manager Carmen Perry. “Our motto is ‘Quality tools at ridiculously low prices.’”

The Claremore location of Harbor Freight is predicted to be the busiest store in Oklahoma.

With six years of retail management experience, Perry joined the Harbor Freight team two months ago and has been training with her new staff to take open the Claremore location.

Perry said in the last two months Harbor Freight has gone above and beyond to make her feel like not only a valued staff member, but a member of the family.

“It’s a very small company, they really care about their employees and the community,” Perry said.

The most rewarding moment as a Harbor Freight team member so far was at the start of the pandemic.

“We donated all of our masks and gloves to a local hospital,” Perry said. “We didn’t even have them on the shelves for customers to buy, because as soon as we got them in they went straight to the people that needed them most.”
