 CHICAGO -- The New Year’s winter storm is going to cost one jeweler in Chicago a lot of money.

He promised that holiday purchases would be free if it snowed more than three inches by noon on New Year's Day. The national weather service measured 3.7 inches at noon Wednesday.

That promise will cost the store owner more than $150,000.

He'll be handing cash back to more than 200 customers during a champagne party.
