A refund party is being planned.

Howie Knopf of Robrt Irwin Jeweler promised customers he’d refund their purchases if the University of Memphis pulled off a certain feat in its recent game against the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that the deal was this: If Memphis returned its opening kickoff of a half and scored a touchdown, he’d refund anyone who’d made a purchase between Aug. 14 and Aug. 30.

And it happened. Running back Tony Pollard “took the opening kickoff of the second half 99 yards for a touchdown,” according to the newspaper.

On Aug. 31, Robert Irwin Jeweler tweeted: “Go Tigers Go! Refund Party Baby!!”

Knopf said he has insurance for this. WMC Action News 5 reports that the refunds might total more than $100,000.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
