Best Hardware Store

Westlake Ace

What if you could have the best of both worlds in a hardware store? You know, a place with the value and selection of the do-it-yourself megastore coupled with the friendly and knowledgeable sales staff you used to find at the corner mom-and-pop? Such a place exists in Westlake Ace. We challenge you to walk into the Brentwood location of this independently operated Ace chain (there's another St. Louis-area Westlake Ace on Watson Road in Crestwood) and spend fifteen seconds without an employee asking you if they can help you find what you're looking for. And, again, don't be fooled. Westlake Ace may have just a quarter the square footage of the big-box retailers, but it has whatever you need, be it power tools, paint, mulch, plumbing parts, bird seed, hinges, a single hard-to-find screw, porch swings or Christmas trees (to name just a few of the items). Pro tip: Sign up for the Ace Rewards card for weekly coupons emailed to your computer or smartphone.
