An Idaho jeweler that held a “snow promotion” will be refunding its customers for jewelry they bought during the holiday season, KREM-TV reports.

Clark’s Diamond Jewelers in Couer D’Alene, ID, wrote in a Facebook post Monday that it had “received notification from the insurance company that our policy has been officially accepted and the award will indeed be paid out!”

The store had promised that if it snowed 3 inches or more on Jan. 11, it would refund purchases made between Nov. 22 and Dec. 31. Those purchases amounted to about $500,000.

The claim had originally been denied. Weather Command, a verification firm that works with the jeweler’s insurer, at first said snowfall on the date in question had been less than the required amount.

The store had vowed to fight for approval, believing that snowfall had indeed exceeded 3 inches.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
