A Harbor Freight Tools is under construction in Stroudsburg. The tool retailer will replace the former A.C. Moore hobby store at 1122 N. Ninth Street in the borough.
The discount tool store will open in early 2021. An opening date has not yet been set.
“We’ve been looking to open a location in Stroudsburg for a number of years so that we can provide the tools and equipment at tremendous values to the community,” said Trey Feiler, senior vice president of Real Estate and Construction for Harbor Freight Tools.
The store is expected to create 25 to 30 new jobs including sales associates, sales and logistic supervisors. There will also be seasonal jobs available.
The family-owned chain was founded in southern California in 1977. It currently has more than 1,100 locations nationally.
