Home Hardware moves into new digs

The doors have closed for the final time at Westcoast Home Hardware on Third Avenue. But don’t despair: the store will reopen in a bigger space in the north end of Port Alberni in less than a week.

The Westcoast Home Hardware Building Centre will officially open on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 8 a.m. in the old Alberni Mall lot, at the north end of Johnston Road.

Owner Jan Lavertu announced last May that the store would be moving. The new building centre will be 30,000 square feet, more than three times as large as the old store. More importantly, Lavertu will be hiring additional staff—as many as 20 people.

Crews have been busy renovating the old Safeway portion of the Alberni Mall in anticipation of Home Hardware’s move.

Other stores that will open in the next few months adjacent to Home Hardware include Aaron’s Home Furnishings and Appliances, and The Brick.
