The owner of J&M Jewelers in Washington Township, MI, decided to call it quits amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

But instead of holding a going-out-of-business sale, Johnny Perri buried his inventory all over Michigan, USA Today reports. He and his fianceé, Amy, also hid “thousands upon thousands” of precious metals and antiques.

“Although I enjoyed being in business for myself and have been blessed serving our wonderful customers, I’ve discovered that I was never truly happy,” Perri wrote on his “Treasure Quest” website.

The total value of the items is about $1 million. The location of each item is marked by an “X” and a GPS tracker, according to USA Today.

Tickets for the first quest, set for Aug. 1 in Oakland County with $4,200 in treasure at stake, have already sold out. Some tickets are still available for other dates and locations.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
