National hardware store Harbor Freight Tools has officially opened a new store in Dahlonega, offering a full selection of tools and equipment to North Georgia shoppers. 

According to a press release by Harbor Freight, the new store is located at 406 E Main Street in Dahlonega and offers a full range of tools and equipment to the North Georgia community. . 

“Over 40 million customers, from professional contractors and technicians to homeowners and hobbyists, come to Harbor Freight to find the tools and equipment they need to get the job done,” the release said. “The company has assembled a world-class team of engineers and experts in all tool categories to ensure that its tools meet or exceed industry standards and deliver unsurpassed value.” 

The new store will stock a full selection of tools and equipment in several different categories, including automotive, air and power tools, storage, outdoor power equipment, generators, welding supplies, shop equipment, hand tools and more.
