Tigers kick return earns free jewelry for thousands

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Memphis jewelry store will honor a promotion to refund all purchases made in their store between Aug. 14 and Aug. 30.

The promotion said that if the Memphis Tigers returned the opening kickoff of the half against Louisiana Monroe for a touchdown, all purchases would be free.

Well, it happened! Tony Pollard took the opening kickoff of the second half 99 yards for a touchdown.

Robert Irwin Jewelers confirmed via Twitter it will refund the purchases made during that 17-day period.

The store has not said exactly how many customers purchased items during the promotional event, but the value of the reimbursements is said to be more than $100,000.

The jewelry story said it has insurance to cover the cost of the payouts.

Customers can expect to get their refunds in six to eight weeks. Robert Irwin Jewelers said it will release more details about the refund party when they become available.
