A hardware store may soon be joining the Hackettstown retail scene.
Harbor Freight Tools — which currently has more than 20 Garden State stores — is eyeing Hackettstown for its newest location.
“We are very interested in joining the Hackettstown community and are actively looking to do so,” Director of Corporate Communications Craig Hoffman told Daily Voice in an email.
The news comes just days after Home Towne Hardware on Main Street announced its upcoming closure after six decades in business.
Though the timing seems ideal, the logistics remain up in the air, as no specific location has been determined.
“Nothing has been finalized,” said Hoffman.
In the meantime, Hackettstowners with a hankering for hardware will have to visit nearby stores like Home Depot on Route 57 and Lowe’s on Mountain Avenue.
