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.

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.”
