FROM STAFF REPORTS
A new Harbor Freight store will bring 25 to 30 new jobs to Elizabethton.
That announcement was made on Tuesday as hiring will begin to fill positions immediately. The store is expected to open in the spring of 2022 and will release an official opening date closer to the time of opening. Interested applicants can apply online at www.harborfreightjobs.com/retail and search “Elizabethton, TN”.
Construction has already begun at the 791 W. Elk Ave. location, using local workers and companies from the surrounding Elizabethton area.
“We’ve been looking to open a location in Elizabethton 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, Real Estate and Construction
for Harbor Freight Tools. “In addition to finding a great location, we were attracted by the availability of great associates
in the Elizabethton area, and we look forward to having them join the Harbor Freight team.”
The business, which promotes itself as America’s go-to store for quality tools at the lowest prices, will be looking to hire Sales and Logistic Supervisors, Senior Associates, Sales Associates, and seasonal opportunities as well.
Forbes Magazine has recently recognized Harbor Freight as one of the top 20 large employers in all of retail, one of the top employers in terms of diversity, a top employer for women, and one of the country’s Best Employers for Veterans for two years in a row.
Diversityjobs.com has also recognized the company as a top employer for its commitment to diversity and inclusion.
