National discount tool store coming to Peru

Posted by wlpo on February 8, 2016

Have you ever heard the business slogan “quality tools at ridiculously low prices”? It belongs to Harbor Freight Tools and they’re brining their discount tools and equipment to Peru.

The California-based company is leasing the east part of what used to be the Kmart building. Harbor Freight will use over 17,000 square feet leaving space for another store to move in next to Dunham’s Sporting Goods.

The new business will mean parking improvements along with demolition of the old garden and automotive centers. Harbor Freight’s main entrance will be on the east side facing Route 251.

Peru Economic Development Director Bob Vickrey says the company rakes in over $2 billion in revenues a year. He’s not sure how many jobs it’ll mean for Peru.
