About Us

Headquartered in the Kansas City area, 117-year-old Westlake Ace Hardware has been the helpful neighborhood hardware store countless generations have shopped for power and hand tools, fasteners, paint, plumbing, lawn care, pet, electrical supplies, and BBQ grills and accessories. It has been part of the Ace Hardware Cooperative since 1959, and a wholly owned Ace subsidiary since 2012.

With access to more than 70,000 products, Westlake lives the Ace Helpful Promise every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice, and products so its customers and neighbors get their projects done right every time. Westlake Commercial offers a wide array of HVAC equipment, plumbing supplies, safety products, commercial lighting, paint, and other hard-to-find products to business and trade customers.

Our dedication to service doesn’t start and stop with only homeowners. Because of our start as a small business, we have a unique perspective on the needs of our business customers. We understand business owners have a unique set of needs that must be met in order to stay profitable. Each Westlake Ace Hardware has a dedicated Commercial Account Representative to help our business customers keep their businesses running smoothly.

While the merchandise may have changed, along with store locations and size, the commitment to be the best neighborhood hardware store in the market remains. This commitment is what has kept Westlake strong for its first century of service – and keeps us growing into our next century. You can expect the neighborly advice you need to find the right solution for any project you may face – big or small.
