The first ever Craftsman Experience store opened this evening in Chicago. Designed to be a DIY and enthusiast haven, the Craftsman Experience will feature Craftsman tools as far as the eye can see, with most if not all tools available for hands-on demos. There will be a workshop and space for projects, how-to clinics, demonstrations, restorations, and much, much more.
Right now there is only one Craftsman Experience location, but hopefully more are in the works. For those of us not anywhere near downtown Chicago, frequent online updates and event viewing has been promised.
Right now we know that events will be tailored for woodworkers, carpenters, mechanics, lawn and garden enthusiasts and DIYers of all skill levels. We heard something about a Corvette rebuild, catapults, and picnic tables with attached keg coolers, and will share any additional info that we receive.
Now all I need is a Craftsman Experience store within 100 miles of NYC and I’ll be happy. When we first posted about Craftsman’s new online portal nearly one and a half years ago, I exclaimed that a standalone brick and mortar should we be something. Hopefully my wish for a closer location comes true as well.
