Westlake expands into California


The positive growth of Ace Retail Holdings, the division of Ace Hardware Corporation that owns and operates the Westlake Ace Hardware chain, has been nothing short of phenomenal. Earlier this summer, it was announced that we would open 9 new stores in California. Once all the stores are open, we will own and operate more than 130 stores from coast to coast.

Our stores are located in former Orchard Supply Hardware locations throughout California. So far, we have announced the openings of stores in Chico, Fresno, Mountain View, Pinole, South Pasadena, Thousand Oaks, West Los Angeles, and Woodland. An additional location will be announced soon.

“The entire Ace Hardware team and I are very excited about our expansion into California. Our growth in the Golden State is the latest example of the vibrant and positive evolution the Ace brand has gone through during the past several years,” said Joe Jeffries, President and CEO of Westlake Ace Hardware.

Jeffries added, “We’re eager to show our new neighbors and customers throughout California how Ace lives the Helpful Promise every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice, and products to help our neighbors get their projects done right. We also look forward to joining the many other wonderful Ace retailers in the state and partnering with them to consistently deliver an outstanding consumer experience each and every day.”

We are thrilled to be able to spread our unique culture and legendary service to our new California neighbors and customers for which Ace has become famous!
