After 31 years in the jewelry industry, Thomas Fisher opened up his own store, Fisher & Sons Jewelers, in July 1977. Incorporating his wife, Chloe Sr., and 16-year-old son Craig into the business model, Tom intended to be his own boss and to take care of his customers as if they were family. It wasn’t long before his daughter, Chloe Fisher Bares, joined the business in 1982, followed by her husband, Barry Bares, in 1995. While Tom’s other grandchildren each took turns working during Summer Break or during the busy Holiday Seasons, Craig’s son Ryan joined the business in 2004.
In 2011 after 55 years in the industry, Tom and Chloe officially handed the business over to their children: Craig and Chloe Jr. The small, family business model continues today after 40 years of business, with Craig, Chloe, Barry and Ryan running the store.
