Harbor Freight is coming to Sebring

— Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor would be thrilled.

Plans were submitted Monday for the remodelling of the old Galleria furniture store, 515 U.S. Highway 27 N.

Harbor Freight Tools plans to turn the 18,270 square-foot building into a mecca for men who use tools.

Sebring would be the 41st Florida location and the only one in the south-central portion of the state.

Harbor Freight, a privately held discount tool and equipment retailer headquartered in Calabasas, Calif., operates a chain of retail stores as well as a mail-order and e-commerce business.

The company offers more than 7,000 generators, shop equipment, hand tools, automotive tools, air tools and power tools.

Arrh! More power.
