The Dennis family said in a press release yesterday that the sale will be effective March 26th of this year at all five Dennis Company locations which include Aberdeen, Elma, Long Beach, Montesano, and Raymond.
The stores will retain the Dennis Company name, management, employees, and products. They’ll also become part of the Ace network and will be a division of Westlake Ace Hardware, who owns 121 hardware stores in 10 states including Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Washington.
As always, customers will continue to enjoy the exemplary service and care they have come to expect from the Dennis Company. Being part of the Ace family will give Dennis Company customers access to more than 70,000 products, both in-store and through special order.
Established in 1905, The Dennis Company has successfully operated through four family generations while being involved and supporting the communities who have supported them. The new ownership will continue to be an active participant in the communities they serve.
