Clark’s Diamond Jewelers in Couer D’Alene, ID, might be on the hook for some serious refunds for merchandise it sold over the holidays.

The store has promised that if it snows 3 inches or more on Jan. 11, it will refund all purchases made between Nov. 22 and Dec. 31.

And now a winter storm is headed its way. KXLY-TV reports that the Inland Northwest is expected to get hit with up to 8 inches of snow on Friday.

The store hosts the snow promotion every year.

Of course, there are terms and conditions, as the business explains on its website:

Sales tax excluded from refund. Repairs and service not included. All purchases must be paid-in-full during promotional period. Promotion is subject to owner’s discretion and may be changed or ended at any time during the promotional period. Snow accumulations will be recorded from 3867 N Player Dr, Coeur d’ Alene, ID 83814, be determined by doppler radar and reported by Weather Command. All refunds are subject to approval and payment made by the Spectrum weather and specialty insurance company.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
