Fasten your tool belts!

I went into Northern Tool & Equipment with my husband recently. He was looking for some sort of tool, this all confuses me when it comes to tools. But this was some big store!! I thought why not do a blog on this while I am here. I am telling you guys, I think you could find anything in the world you were looking for in here!!
There is row after row of tools, parts and every kind of supply you would ever need. The aisles are well marked so I just took some notes. I don't even know what half of this stuff is for but I am sure you do! It is nice to know there is a store like this around so you can do all your shopping under one roof.
Here is what I found. Garden carts and lawn mowers. Nuts and bolts. Propane accessories. All kinds of tape. Fasteners hardware. Extension cords. Work lights. All kinds of power tools and accessories. Have you found anything you need yet? Just wait there is lots more!
Bench top tools. Large air compressors. Welders and vice jacks...what are those?? Pliers, screwdrivers and wrenches. Pry bars. Battery chargers, gloves, scaffolding and platforms.
These aren't in any particular order. I'm just walking around in here! But everything is well organized and well marked aisles make it easy for you to find just what you are looking for.
Where were we.. oh yes, measuring tools, and cutting tools. Rain wear, boots and socks.
Have you found it yet? How about sub pumps and generators. Hitch accessories. Trailer lighting and parts. Trailer electrical and axels. What an assortment , tool boxes of every size. The garganous one that you could live in was $769.
There is over 8000 quality brand name tools inside! They guarantee the lowest prices. They also offer 6 months, no interest, no payments! If you can't find what you are looking for you can access thousands of tools and get free store delivery, no shipping charges from their giant 2009 summer catalog.
Here's a quick index in alphabetical order: Abrasive blasting, air compressors, air tools, alternative energy, automotive, construction, electrical, engines, fans, farm and acreage, food prep, fuel/lubrication, go-Karts, hand tools, heaters, hydraulics, jacks & lifts, lawn & garden, lighting, logging, material handling, measuring, metal fabrication, painting, parts washers, power tools, pressure washers, safety, security, sprayers, storage, tires and wheels, water pumps, welding and winches.
