Store History

JS West started his business venture in Sonora back in 1948, as his love for the local community grew and his feeling of responsibility to the community grew, he started to expand his local businesses. In 1996 JS West purchased the Ace Hardware from Irving Symons. It is still operating today as JS West Lumber & Ace Hardware. Though the store has been here for over 90 years, the West family continues to expand and grow its operation based on our customer's needs. In 2008 it opened Ace Rental Place, a full service tool and equipment rental. This came from our customers need for tools for small, one time projects. We also incorporated a JC Penney catalog desk where customers can pick up catalogs, order product, pick up product, and even purchase gift cards. We are all committed to being "the Helpful Place" by offering our customers knowledgeable advice, helpful service and quality products.
