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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
