The Torres Omar Jewelers Story
The humble, yet ambitious story of Torres Omar Jewelers begins well before the founding date. In 1960, founding owner, Jose Torres Sr. was traveling through the Midwest to look for work to support his family back in Mexico. After extensive travel and no luck with finding work, he eventually arrived to Chicago. He immediately fell in love with the vastness of the city and began working three different jobs while staying with a distant relative. Jose Sr. was an entrepreneur at heart, and his dream was to start his own business so he could provide for his family and give his kids everything they wanted. After years and years of long workdays, he saved up enough money to start buying jewelry at wholesale value, to sell to friends and family. His clientele quickly began to grow as word spread about his customer service and wide variety of unique products. Jose Sr. focused his efforts on the jewelry business, and after 20 years in Chicago, he was able to accomplish his dream and open his first storefront in Logan Square
