-- After years in the neighborhood, the Villa Park Hardware is getting a facelift and a new phone number. The local hardware store has been in the area for around 50 years in 2 locations.
“We are in the process of upgrading the cable and communication lines for the computers and decided to go with a new system” says Jason Smejkal, manager. “So the company gave us a new phone number.”
The Villa Park Hardware is no longer an Ace Hardware and the employees are excited about the changes they are making to the store. They will be buying direct from the manufacturers and a wholesale company to get a unique selection of hardware items at better pricing for their customers.
“We have a great floor plan that we are starting to roll out. We will be creating a bigger back room for storing seasonal items. We will also be bringing in a new company for our nuts and bolts, paint and light bulbs. I hope to be finished this summer with most of the changes,” says Jason.
The Villa Park Hardware plans on having the area’s largest selection of nuts and bolts, Sylvania Light Bulbs and Valspar Paint to complement their new hardware lines.
You can stop in and see the store at 46 S. Villa Ave. Villa Park, IL 60181 and give them a call at 630-501-1433. They also have a new website with hardware tips at http://www.villaparkhardware.com
