George & Co. Jewelers in Dickson City, PA, took a big chance with its 4th of July Rain Day Promotion. The store promised that if it rained at least half an inch on Independence Day, their jewelry would be free.

As it turned out, there was more than enough rain, and now the store — or its insurance company — must pay up, WNEP-TV reports.

“We are excited to announce that we just received the official results and all weather stipulations were met,” George & Co. posted Monday on Facebook.

“According to the NOAA Airport recording, there was actually 1.14 inches of rain during the twelve hour period! If you qualified for the promotion, please be patient we will be contacting you shortly to congratulate you and invite you to our very special check writing party!”

Thirty-six customers qualified, according to WNEP. George Duffy of George & Co. said the store sold a total of more than $50,000 of merchandise on July 4.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
