Dewey Barber Chevrolet opens new Gardendale location


GARDENDALE — Dewey Barber Chevrolet purchased 47 acres from Jefferson County last year at the intersection of Interstate 65 and what was then called Mary Buckelew Boulevard. The Jefferson County Commission recently renamed the road Barber Boulevard following Buckelew’s conviction for perjury in the Jefferson County sewer scandal.

The business takes up 17 acres, leaving 30 for future development. Dewey Barber, in a talk to the Gardendale Area Rotary Club this spring, said he hopes to see other businesses open at the property in the future.

As incentives to bring Dewey Barber Chevrolet to Gardendale, the Gardendale City Council agreed for the city to spend up to $500,000 to build roads and do other infrastructure work at the site.

In addition, the dealership and the city will split sales taxes. Each will get 50 percent of the 3-percent municipal tax, and 50 percent of the 0.75-percent tax on vehicle sales. That deal is in effect until the business earns $380,000 in tax abatements or in seven years; whichever comes first.

At 30,000 square feet, the new facility is 10,000 square feet larger than the Warrior building.

The business’ new address is 90 Barber Boulevard, off of Interstate 65 exit 275. The phone number is the same: (205) 647-0538.
