Westlake Ace Hardware to Add Store in Gardner, Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (November 8, 2022) – Westlake Ace Hardware announced today it will acquire Trails West Ace Hardware. The store is located at 240 North Moonlight Road in Gardner, Kan.

When the sale is finalized on January 15, 2023, Westlake Ace will own and operate 30 retail hardware stores in Kansas. The store will be rebranded as Westlake Ace Hardware, but it will be a seamless transition of ownership and the store will retain management, store personnel, and much of the current product mix – which includes such leading brands as Benjamin Moore and Magnolia paint, Weber and Traeger grills, Scotts lawncare products, EGO, Toro and Stihl outdoor equipment, DeWalt and Craftsman power tools, and Yeti coolers and drinkware.
