IN THE PRESS
From the Kansas City Business Journal:
“Westlake Ace Hardware plans to debut its new store in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood on Jan. 2. The Lenexa-based company took over a 6,600-square-foot space at 104 W. 63rd St. formerly occupied by Tuesday Morning, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May. Tuesday Morning’s Brookside location was included in a plan to shutter more than 130 stores throughout the U.S. The Brookside store will be led by General Manager Amber Murfin, who joined the company in 2006.” Read more.
