Another empty store along the Homer Adams Parkway in Alton will be filled soon.  Harbor Freight Tools will soon be located in the store many remember as the old Venture Store, between the Farm & Home Store and Chinese Buffet.

Alton City Department of Development and Housing Director Greg Caffey tells The Big Z the company will be renovating about 16,000 square feet in the building.

Harbor Freight Tools was founded in 1977 as a family-owned business.  There are about 600 Harbor Freight Tools locations nationwide.
