I wonder how many items you would find in a Harbor Freight Store if they all had to be made in the USA ?

Well, if MN is anything like New Yorkistan, maybe it's about the sales tax they can collect... The more, the merrier!

I need more than 200 characters for my "signature." I'd love to see that changed to 250!

Why would you shop at Harbor (China) Freight to begin with?

I think Lou hit on the answer.  When I read this, I grabbed my catalog which happened to be here on my desk.  The ad shows 2 flags, one for 8.99 that DOES say not available in MN.  The other is 19.99 and says "made in USA" and DOES NOT say not available.  I went to their web site and found the same thing.  The cheaper flag does not say where it is made, but does say it is not available.  The 19.99 flag says mad in USA but does not say anything about not being available.

Has to be something about made in US or not.

Maybe the issue is that it is made in China. I don't know, just thinking out loud
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Ps 27

I recently received my Harbor Freight Merry Christmas  sale catalog. While thumbing thorough it I saw something that was unbelievable, in the ad for a American flag and flag pole in small letters it says NOT AVAILABLE IN MN . What the he** isn't Minnesota in the USA anymore and why can't the people of that state walk into a Harbor Freight store and buy a American flag to show their pride that they live in the greatest country in the world. It couldn't be that most of MN is Muslim and think that that they don't have to be part of the rest of the US.  I'm not sure about the rest of you out there but I don't think that I want to shop at this store anymore and support this way of thinking . Yes I understand that most if not all of their stuff comes from China and its junk, but I think from now on I will try to buy stuff made in the USA and not support these unAmerican  companies anymore.
