Federal Way, WA (MMD Newswire) February 13, 2012 - Harbor Freight Tools, the nation's largest discount tool retailer, today announced the opening of their newest store located at 31858 Pacific Highway South in the city of Federal Way.
"We are very excited to be opening the eleventh Harbor Freight Tools store in the state of Washington, and look forward to being a member of the Federal Way community," said Eric Smidt, President of Harbor Freight Tools. "Our business model is simple: earn our customers' business every day by offering quality tools at ridiculously low prices, combined with superior customer service. In our current economy, consumers are especially cost-conscious and Harbor Freight provides a much-needed alternative to the 'big box' retailers that sell brands with inflated prices and provide minimal attention to customer care."

At 11:30 a.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Mayor Skip Priest and the Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce will be held.
