In the late 1970's, Robert Rose worked as a sales representative for a large jewelry manufacturer, traveling Texas and Oklahoma. His primary customer base was independent retail jewelry stores in small to mid-sized towns. Because large discount centers and department stores were getting into the jewelry business in a big way, many of the independent stores were hiring jewelry repairmen and setting up their own shops. This enabled them to provide a service that the major chains could not; a competitive edge, so to speak.
Robert Rose soon learned that his customers, to whom he was trying to sell finished jewelry, really needed supplies of findings, tools, and equipment. This was an opportunity that Mr. Rose could not pass up. After studying the market for several months, Mr. Rose purchased Roseco's initial inventory with every dime he could scrape together. He loaded up the trunk of his car and took off down the highway. The second week of June 1979, Roseco's first week of business, sales totaled $5000.
