We want to say Thank You to all the suppliers and buyers who participated in our Westlake Ace Hardware Buying Day on May 24th, 2017. With over 55 meetings happening at Westlake Ace Hardware headquarters in Lenexa, KS we call it a success!
Westlake Hardware is a chain of 98 neighborhood hardware stores operating in 8 states across the Midwest with a sales range of $280 – $300 million. Westlake Ace Hardware operates stores in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and North Carolina.
The company was started in 1905 in Huntsville, MO, when W.I. Westlake bought part ownership in a hardware store there. The company slowly expanded over the next few decades until Westlake joined the Ace Hardware distribution network in 1959 and eventually became the largest Ace dealer in America. Westlake’s average sales floor size is about 22,000 square feet.
Missed this great opportunity?
No problem, we will hold another Westlake Ace Hardware in May 2018. Stay tuned for more details.
