Westlake Ace Hardware is entering New York with the acquisition of three-unit Haggerty Ace Hardware. The purchase is set to be completed on Jan. 19.
According to Westlake, it will be a seamless transition of ownership from Jeff and Wanda Haggerty, who started the business in Cooperstown in 1992. The stores will retain management, store personnel, and the current product mix. Haggerty also operates locations in Delhi and Walton.
Westlake currently has over 130 stores in 11 states.
