Westlake Ace Hardware

Until recently, the Excelsior Springs Westlake Ace Hardware has been managed by Chamber President Elect Bill Westerheide, pictured at left. However, it was announced at the July Chamber luncheon that Bill will be moving into a new role as Business Development Manager for the company and the local store would be managed by longtime employee Clay Carpenter, pictured at right.

One thing that will not change is the involvement that Westlake Ace Hardware has played in the community. For years the store has been supportive of annual events and fundraisers, offering discounted items for nonprofits, sending products for silent auctions, and being sponsors for community events. This past summer when Westerheide learned that the police didn’t have a grill, he worked with his company to donate one to the department. This is just one example of many that Westlake has helped to fill a community need.

Westerheide’s new position will still allow him to be active in the Chamber and Hospital Foundation. Carpenter has recently joined the Excelsior Springs Rotary Club.

The store is located at 157 Crown Hill Road, Excelsior Springs. Call 816-630-2770 to contact the store or visit the website for online service.
