The design of the department and the product offerings facilitate more product demonstrations and sampling opportunities, allowing a more interactive experience with our customers.

For the BBQ lover, the Parkville Westlake ACE Hardware offers an extensive selection of grills and smokers from brands including Big Green Egg, Pit Barrel Cooker Co., Traeger and Weber, as well as grilling tools, supplies and sauces in its Backyard BBQ department.

This location also offers an expanded Pet Supply “store-within-a-store” department that carries an extensive array of pet food, toys, grooming products, health supplies, pre-packed and bulk treats. Featured premium brands will include Blue Buffalo, Science Diet, Nutro, Taste of The Wild and Merrick.

The Parkville location of Westlake ACE Hardware is partnering with Feed Northland Kids, a local non-profit organization focused on addressing weekend nutrition and hunger by providing healthy, kid-friendly foods for school-age children living in the Northland of Kansas City, MO. Feed Northland Kids will receive the profits from select Parkville branded t-shirts and hats sold at the Parkville location.

“Parkville is such a vibrant community and being back in Platte County after a few year absence with a store in the area is very exciting for us,” said Joe Jeffries, president and CEO of Westlake ACE Hardware. “Joining the Parkville community allows us to deepen our relationship with customers in the greater Kansas City metro area and show them how we live the Ace Helpful Promise every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice and products to help customers get their projects done right.”
