Westlake Ace plans 4th store in St. Louis market
With three other St. Louis locations, Westlake Ace Hardware plans to open a fourth in the St. Peters community early next year.
“We look forward to becoming part of the St. Peters community and continuing to provide a local retail hardware option for its residents,” said Joe Jeffries, president and CEO of Westlake Ace Hardware. “Most of all, we are excited to show our new neighbors there how we live the Ace Helpful Promise every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice, and products to help them get their projects done right.”
A soft opening of the new Ace store is planned for late March 2021 at 915 Jungerman Road. The space is currently home to Brewer’s True Value Hardware, which is expected to close on Nov. 30.
Brewer’s is currently engaged in a going out of business sale. A statement on the True Value store’s Facebook page reads: “We are so proud to have served our local community with goods and services; and proud to have provided jobs for our great associates. It pains us to let you all down, but please join us for our store closing sale going on now!”
In and around St. Louis, Westlake already operates a store in Brentwood, in Maryland Heights and in St. Louis proper. Westlake Ace Hardware operates 115 stores around the country. The retailer, owned by the Ace Hardware cooperative, is based in the Kansas City area.
