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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
