What’s the history of the company and where you are located today?
Breslauer: One hundred years ago my grandfather, Hugo Breslauer, met his future partner James Warren while working in the jewelry business in San Francisco. The two decided to start their own jewelry store and found an opportunity in Winnipeg. In 1919, Winnipeg was the third largest city in Canada so they moved there and started Breslauer & Warren Jewellers on Portage Avenue.
