Westlake Ace will acquire Town Center Hardware in Kirkland and Lake Forest Park, Wash.

When the sale is finalized, Westlake Ace will own eight retail hardware locations in Washington state.

Westlake Ace Hardware is purchasing two-unit Washington State dealer Town Center Hardware.

The deal, set to close March 8, includes two locations in Kirkland and Lake Forest Park, Wa. Both stores will be rebranded as Westlake Ace Hardware and remodeled, starting in summer 2021.

Westlake Ace currently owns six other hardware stores in the state—under the North Bend Ace and Dennis Company Ace brands. According to Westlake Ace, it will be a seamless transition of ownership and the stores will retain management, store personnel, and continue to offer such leading brands as Benjamin Moore and Magnolia by Joanna Gaines paints, Weber and Traeger grills, Stihl outdoor power equipment, and DeWalt power tools.

“It has been our sincere pleasure to serve the Lake Forest Park and Kirkland communities with Town Center Hardware. We are proud of the dedicated employees who have represented our stores with the highest level of professionalism through the years,” said Joe and Tim Uhrich, owners of Town Center Hardware.

In the West, Westlake also operates 11 locations in California, among its total of 145 stores in 12 states.
