Harbor Freight is now open for business at 1624 E. Sarah DeWitt Dr., in the Gonzales Marketplace Shopping Center that includes Dollar Tree, Hibbett Sports, Factory Connection, AT&T and Storey Jewelers.
Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. o Sunday. The phone number for the store is (830) 722-8181.
