This Store Promised Free Jewelry If It Rained on July 4. Guess What Happened …

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.

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.”
