Tool Box by Woodcraft in Chattanooga opened its doors in September and will host grand opening festivities Friday and Saturday.

Chattanooga area residents are invited to visit the first Tool Box by Woodcraft store during grand opening festivities scheduled for Friday and Saturday. The new, smaller sized Tool Box by Woodcraft is located at 5824 Brainerd Road. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

“To celebrate bringing Woodcraft’s quality products and services to this southeastern Tennessee city, the Chattanooga Tool Box by Woodcraft will offer grand opening specials and have representatives from Woodcraft tool vendors on hand to discuss their products,” owner/operator Aaron Sapp said. “We are excited to be part of the retail community and eager to help woodworkers with all their needs, from selecting tools and supplies to project advice.” 

Woodcraft Supply, LLC, one of the nation's oldest and largest suppliers of woodworking tools, supplies, and plans, has developed Toolbox by Woodcraft in a manner that will allow the introduction of Woodcraft retail locations in smaller markets across the US. Currently, Woodcraft offers more than 20,000 products at retail stores in over 70 major metropolitan areas across the U.S., through two million catalogs distributed annually in all 50 states and 117 countries, and online at woodcraft.com. 

“Woodcraft is opening Tool Box by Woodcraft stores to bring Woodcraft’s best-selling woodworking tools, accessories, and supplies to areas not served by our larger stores,” Woodcraft President Jody Garrett said. “Woodcraft wants to make its quality line of products available in more areas of the country, as well as closer to loyal Woodcraft customers.” 

Mr. Garrett emphasized that although the Tool Box stores are smaller, customers will still find the most popular Woodcraft products, along with a scaled down offering of larger items such as power tools. Products not available may be ordered at the store, he said.

“By establishing the Tool Box by Woodcraft, our hope is to share the Woodcraft retail experience with more customers, as well as offer existing customers the convenience of shopping closer to home or shopping in a retail store for the first time,” Mr. Garrett said. “Woodcraft understands that many shoppers enjoy seeing products firsthand, as well as face-to-face exchange with employees who are also woodworkers ready to offer assistance and advice.” 

Products are not the only aspect of the Woodcraft retail shopping experience that the Chattanooga Tool Box visitors will discover. “Visitors will find the same customer-oriented service that is a hallmark of the larger Woodcraft retail stores,” Gary Lombard, vice president retail/franchise development, said. “Also like its larger counterparts, the Tool Box by Woodcraft will host free product demonstrations on a regular basis to provide additional how-to guidance for customers.”
