With this newest addition, Lenexa-based Westlake will have 20 stores in the Kansas City metro area.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. June 9, 2016- Westlake Ace Hardware announced today it has entered into a lease agreement and will be opening a new store in the current location of Dobbels True Value Hardware located in Stanley Station at 7821 West 151st Street in Overland Park, Kansas.

Lenexa-based Westlake will take possession of the 15,500 square foot store on July 29 and officially reopen as a Westlake Ace in Fall 2016. Dobbels is currently having a going-out-of-business sale.  

The new store will have a 12,500 square foot sales floor and sell traditional hardware products such as fasteners, tools, paint, plumbing and electrical supplies, as well as pet care, outdoor living, and BBQ products. Additionally, it will feature a large Garden Center and provide a wide range of seasonal lawn and garden supplies. A grand opening event will be held in October.

“Westlake is a growing and vibrant brand, and a valuable resource for our customers everywhere. The addition of our newest store in Overland Park exemplifies our strategy to continually expand the Westlake brand in ways that make sense for our customers,” said Tom Knox, CEO of Westlake. “Dobbels has been an important part of the Overland Park community for a very long time.
