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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
