Freight lines: After months of scouting Texas City sites, California-based Harbor Freight Tools has settled on a space at what’s become a bustling retail center at the business office building formerly occupied by Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery, 3403 Palmer Highway.

The store is underway at the end of the center facing the highway. The 15,000-square-foot store, which will mark Harbor Freight’s 79th in Texas, will stock a full selection of tools and accessories in categories including automotive, air and power tools, storage, outdoor power equipment, generators, welding supplies, shop equipment, hand tools and more, company officials said.
