KMS Tools celebrating grand opening in Abbotsford

New location on McConnell Road, right next to Costco

KMS Tools is celebrating a grand opening from Nov. 14 to 16 and is inviting the whole community to join in on the excitement.

The new location for the store is 34530 McConnell Road, right next to Costco and the store is big – spanning about 25,000 square feet.

The three-day grand opening event features free smokies and pop, with any funds raised going towards supporting youth athletic programs.

KMS’s own charity program, Tools for the World, will also be at the forefront. Used tools that are dropped off will be given a new life somewhere else in the world- rebuilding after a disaster, or setting up businesses in developing countries amongst many other causes.

The store is also offering special deals on over 2,500 items, extra discounts on over 800 additional items, over $20,000 in prize giveaways and a classic car show and shine (weather permitting).

The grand opening runs on regular store hours – Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

KMS Tools and Equipment is an industrial distributor that carries a huge selection of tools, from high quality heavy-duty professional tools to value-priced occasional use tools.

KMS is a Canadian retailer of power tools, woodworking, metalworking, construction equipment and C.A.R parts (which stands for custom and restoration).

It was founded in Coquitlam, BC in 1983 by Stan Pridham. It continues to be 100% Canadian and BC owned.

There are seven locations in B.C. and four in Alberta. For more on the company, visit kmstools.com.
