Westlake Ace Hardware has signed a lease agreement to open a new store in Placentia, California, a suburb of Los Angeles just north of Anaheim.

Renovations to the space will begin in the third quarter of 2023, with an anticipated soft opening later in the year, said the company. It will feature approximately 20,000 square feet of retail space.

“We are excited to show our new customers in Placentia how we live the Ace Helpful Promise every day through reliable service, helpful advice, and the products they need to get their projects done right,” said Joe Jeffries, president and CEO of Westlake Ace Hardware.

In addition to offering such services as key cutting and automotive key fob replacement, a propane tank exchange, and knife sharpening, Ace Hardware of Placentia said it will sell lawn and garden supplies, fasteners, tools, plumbing and electrical supplies.

“We are thrilled to be joining this community as a friend, a trusted neighbor, and an employer,” said Jeffries.

Westlake Ace currently owns and operates five locations in southern California, with plans to open three additional stores in Glendale, Porter Ranch, and Simi Valley in 2023.
