    Saw some work being done and a familiar sign just off of I-30 today near Baseline.

    Northern Tool to Move in After $449K Deal

    LR is getting a Northern Tool. I guess that sort of makes up for losing our Sears.

    And apparently @Tireguy87 just made some money in the closing of the deal. LOL.

    (yeah I doubt it was you)

    Yeah I wish!

    That's cool news though. I've never been in one but their catalog is always intriguing

    Never been in one either so forgive me for a stupid question, but do they sell quality tools or are they comparable to cheap Harbor Freight stuff?

    Probably a notch better than HF. Will still be some hits and misses. Comparable to modern Sears/Craftsman (the chinese stuff) and Home Depot/Lowes house brands.

    I've been to the one in Memphis and it's awesome. Felt like a kid in a candy store... They even had a great selection of crowbars :)
