i guess it's nice of them to do that, but it's not like the people who go in will be in a position to buy more? maybe they hope to win them as long-term customers (for when they get another job)??

When I click the link I get a "page cannot be found" message....I was going to look for my mom since the bank just foreclosed on her house because she couldn't afford it anymore after my dad died in October and they refused to lower the payment. ;(

There's a jewelry store that I used to go into all the time growing up and one near Houston doing this. This is so strange!

What are they thinking anyway? Hey you lost your house but here's necklace so you feel better??? How about instead of giving away free necklaces they take all that money and idk pay off someone's mortgage who's about to be foreclosed on so they aren't kicked to the street?

Given this economy, I'm sure people aren't buying jewelry like before so maybe giving money isn't possible. I think this is sweet and really nice.

If you can't give money, it is still important to give what you can (and in their case, its free silver necklaces).

I think they think people will remember them when they get back on their feet with a new job or new home. And I think it will work. Very nice.
