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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
