Has anyone else heard that West Plains is getting an Ace Hardware ? I have heard its going in the old Goody's / Shays building. I know they are doing a lot of work on the building. We might not get a Lowe's now.

I would appreciate any business that gives me other alternatives than Meek's and Wal*Mart.

Where can I apply for a job. I still wish we would have got a Lowe's.

It's not in West Plains, but Waggoner True Value in Willow Springs is a really nice store - a "mini" Lowe's. They have electrical, plumbing, tool rental, house wares, etc.

I don't even understand this last comment. There is a Westlake Ace Hardware coming to West Plains MO. They are getting the building ready now.

Just suggesting that, rather than trek to Mountain Home, there are area stores we can support other than Walmart. Money spent in Willow does trickle down to West Plains. Competition is good.

Ace Hardware will be a welcome addition to West Plains when it opens.

Ace is going in where Goodies used to be across from Colton's.

Yes all new commercial activities are great for West Plains, but if people don't have incomes then don't expect to get all of the commercial stores to move into town. Solve the job problem, then the commercial will come.
