An Idaho jeweler that held a “snow promotion” had hoped to refund $500,000 in holiday sales — but so far, its claims have been denied, KREM-TV reports.

Clark’s Diamond Jewelers in Couer D’Alene, ID, promised that if it snowed 3 inches or more on Jan. 11, it would refund purchases made between Nov. 22 and Dec. 31. Those purchases amounted to about $500,000, according to the store.

But Weather Command, a verification firm that works with the jeweler’s insurer, says it only snowed 2.3 inches on the date in question. And the claim has been denied by the insurance company, according to KREM.

The jewelry store on Wednesday wrote on Facebook: “Clark’s Diamond Jewelers wants you to know that we believe those who made purchases during the promotion should be entitled to refunds from the insurance company. Like many of you, we were hard at work in the early hours shoveling the newly fallen snow and excited about the prospect of making those refunds happen, and we will still fight to do so.”

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.”
