Asheville, NC, jewelry store Perry's is taking a page out of Jordan's Furniture's book—remember when the Boston-area furniture giant promised to refund everyone's purchases if the Red Sox won the World Series? Well, Perry's promised its customers it would refund them the purchase prices on holiday jewelry if it snowed more than three inches in town. And guess what? It snowed six.
