On Friday, June 3, at 11:30 a.m., a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Hialeah Chamber of Commerce and Industries will be immediately followed by a donation to Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade of more than $1000.00 in much needed tools and supplies. On Saturday, June 4, doors open at 8:00 a.m. for Harbor Freight Hialeah’s special Grand Opening Sale, with select merchandise discounted as much as 70 percent.

“We are very excited to be opening the 24th Harbor Freight Tools store in the state of Florida, and delighted by the warm welcome the Hialeah community has shown us,” said Eric Smidt, CEO of Harbor Freight Tools. “Harbor Freight continues to grow significantly by consistently earning our customers’ business each and every day. We do that with superior customer service and by offering over 7,000 high quality tools in air and power, automotive, home and shop, at ridiculously low prices.”

Harbor Freight’s donation to Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade (RTMD) will be immediately put to use by a team of volunteers working on renovations to a community center in nearby Liberty City. Since 1988, Rebuilding Together and its 207 affiliates and volunteers across the country have completed repair projects for America’s low-income homeowners and the communities in which they live. RTMD, which opened its doors in 1993, has rehabilitated 364 homes, donating approximately five million dollars of work to the community to date.

“Rebuilding Together Miami is very appreciative of this significant donation by Harbor Freight Tools in support of our mission to rehab homes for low-income, the elderly, veterans, and disabled homeowners in our community,” said Donna Fales, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade. “Together we can make a difference in our community.”
