Westlake Hardware to Open New Ace Hardware in Van Nuys, California
The new Ace Hardware of Van Nuys will officially open December 18, 2019. The store is in the former Orchard Supply Hardware location at 5960 Sepulveda Blvd. A grand opening is scheduled for early 2020.
The store is anticipated to eventually employ approximately 50 people from the area. Sam Mushamel, the store’s general manager, is among the many familiar faces customers will recognize from when the store was Orchard Supply Hardware. “We look forward to becoming a supportive, active, and helpful part of the Van Nuys community,” said Mushamel.
Mushamel added, “Van Nuys consumers will soon have a neighborhood hardware store choice again. We are going to feature an exciting blend of products. But more importantly, it gives us an opportunity to show the community how we live the Ace Helpful Promise every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice, and products to help customers get their projects done right.”
