Westlake Ace Hardware has signed a lease agreement to open a new store in Placentia, Ca.—its first in Orange County.
Westlake Ace currently owns and operates five locations in southern California, with plans to open three additional stores in Glendale, Porter Ranch, and Simi Valley in 2023.
Westlake Ace plans to open the store at 1257 East Yorba Linda Blvd. (former location of Big Lots). Renovations to the space will begin in the third quarter of 2023, with an anticipated soft opening later in the year. It will feature approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
“We are excited to show our new customers in Placentia how we live the Ace Helpful Promise every day through reliable service, helpful advice, and the products they need to get their projects done right,” said Joe Jeffries, president and CEO of Westlake Ace Hardware. “We are thrilled to be joining this community as a friend, a trusted neighbor, and an employer.”
In addition to offering such services as key cutting and automotive key fob replacement, a propane tank exchange, and knife sharpening, Ace Hardware of Placentia will sell lawn and garden supplies, fasteners, tools, plumbing, and electrical supplies. The new store will also feature several specialty departments and store-within-a-store concepts.
