Komara Jewelers to Hold Liquidation Sale Starting Friday
CANFIELD, Ohio – Bob Komara has lots of fond memories as a kid working in the jewelry store his father Stephen founded in Struthers in 1948. He spent much of his youth cleaning cases, windows and sweeping floors because soot from a mill across the street would frequently wind up in the store.
Now, he’s ready to “pass the torch” and turn the jewelry store, Komara Jewelers, over to a third generation: his daughter Brianna and son Rob, he said.
To celebrate the passing of the torch, Komara Jewelers at 3649 Canfield Road is having a liquidation sale starting Friday.
Discounts on brands such as Hearts on Fire, Le Vian, Movado, Pandora, and Simon G., as well as a large assortment of yellow diamond rings and gemstones in a variety of colors will take place.
After the sale the store will feature new inventory and Bob will still be involved with the store as a consultant, by appointment and when needed.
Brianna graduated as a gemologist from the Gemological Institute Of America and Rob graduated as a jewelry designer and with a diamond degree from Gemological Institute Of America.
Brianna and Rob will continue to participate in charitable giving in the community. Some of the causes the Komaras have given to include: research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, Hospice of the Valley, United Way, and the Hope Foundation, as well as supporting local schools, churches, local charities and individuals.
“We really do give a lot,” Brianna said. “We’ve been around for 70 years and we wouldn’t be able to be where we are without the community.”
Komara Jewelers has been honored as the “2013 Alzheimers Family Of The Year,” “Mahoning – Shenago Outstanding Small Business Philanthropist Of The Year 2016” and most recently as “The Honorary Chairman of the American Cancer Society 2018 Cattle Baron Ball.”
