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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
