Default First time

So today was the first time i stopped into haborfrieght... I was like a kid in a penny candy store. So much cheap stuff... and for the limited use of some of it, completely worth it... I limited my self though... walked out with a mini die grinder, and a crap load of other air fittings and stuff for $20 bucks. I think i found a new favorite store... one a broke student can afford to shop in

I get all warm and tingly when I go in there. I can't wait till I get that feeling when I go into SEARS and can actually buy craftsmen stuff.

If it was the harborfreight in Ypsilanti, make sure you locked your doors when you went in.

it's located next to the most GHETTO wal-mart of all time. FILTHY. There's a reason that truck with the flashing light on it drives around NON-STOP.

BUT, HF is cool. Even if the stuff breaks, oh well.

There is one opening in westland on ford rd. If you got to their site and search stores it comes up but no Phone# yet so I assume it's not open.

A little clue ....get on the mailing list E mail that is because I get 10 and 20 % off coupons all the time and they work on sale items, also if you see it on line cheaper than in the retail store print out the add and they will honor it.

Example : My wife bought me the HF 9000# winch which had a price tag of 556.00 on sale for 299.00 , she had a 20% off coupon and she bought the 2 year exchange warranty, she walked out paying 279.00 . I know it's not a name brand but it is identical to a milemarker 9000" ....yes it is the 4.8 hp motor .

The 9 dollar grinders are great for the 2nd or 3rd , I can keep a soft wheel on one a cut off wheel on the other and keep my craftsman for the hard wheel .
