Ace expands in Indonesia

JAKARTA — Ace Hardware will open 15 new stores across Indonesia by year’s end as it seeks to meet increasing consumer demand in the archipelago. Ten have recently been opened, investor relations spokesperson Imelda Widjojo told The Jakarta Post, while two more will open now that this week’s presidential election has wound down. The last three of the outlets will launch after the summer Eid holiday. The latest openings have brought the total number of Indonesian outlets to 107.
