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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
