Gardendale Jewelers to shut its doors

Owner Bob Boffa cites health issues



Boffa said people are more concerned now with price than with quality.

But for him, his customers have always been the heart of his business.

“It has become cookie cutter. That’s not our thing,” he said. “We always wanted to do our best because our customers are family. It’s best now for us to back out.”

Bob and Bobbie Boffa have five children and two grandsons.

“I love Gardendale. I hate leaving,” he said. “These days, staying healthy for my family is a full-time job.”
