Episode 98:

If our information is correct, D. Westphal Jewelers on Broadway in Bradley now stands as the Kankakee area’s oldest independent jewelry store since the unfortunate closing of Volkmann Diamonds in 2016.

Darren Westphal is the third generation in his family to own and operate the store. It all started with his grandfather, John Westphal, who came from Paxton to purchase the current storefront that’s on Broadway in Bradley in 1970.

Darren is an avid community supporter and he puts a smile on my face every time I see him. Thanks for sharing your story with us, Darren!
