Bob Thompson started his career in the jewellery industry in the year 1952, where he began as a respected and skilled watchmaker. Over the years, his interest in the industry expanded into the jewellery. Bob’s wife, Margaret, joined Bob Thompson Jewellers in 1970. She handled the bookkeeping and daily store operations, working very hard with her husband in order to succeed in the competitive industry.
