Westlake Ace Hardware has plans to open its 86th location in West Plains, Mo. It will be the chain’s second store incorporating a new store design and layout.
The store will feature construction materials and a design approach intended to provide an organic and modern feel, more natural light from garage-style doors and skylights, a wood and metal facade and polished concrete floors.
The store will carry traditional hardware such as fasteners, tools, paint, plumbing and electrical supplies, and a large range of lawn and garden products. Westlake also offers a variety of wild bird, pet and patio products, and an assortment of barbecue grills, sauces, rubs and accessories.
The largest member of the Ace Hardware cooperative, Westlake Ace Hardware operates neighborhood hardware stores in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.
