Jewel Osco - History
Getting its start as a door-to-door coffee and tea sales company, Frank Ross and his brother-in-law Frank Skiff rented a horse and used a secondhand wagon to start their business in 1899. The Jewel Tea Company expanded to include Jewel Food Stores and expanded beyond throughout the 20th century. In the 1960s, the company acquired Osco Drugs, which led to the Jewel-Osco brand name. The company now operates with the two stores together, as a seamless presentation of food and drug retail together in the Chicago, Illinois area and now owned by Albertsons, Inc.
