(Baltimore, MD) — The Baltimore Ravens were not the only winners on Super Bowl Sunday.

Thanks to receiver Jacoby Jones, customers at Gardiner’s Furniture stores scored free furniture!

The retailer ran a promotion for everyone who shopped at the chain’s stores last week: if the Ravens returned either the game-opening or second half kickoff for a touchdown in the Super Bowl, the customers got free furniture. Jones’ speedy footwork led to a 108-yard return to open the 3rd quarter.

“This is the greatest day for Ravens. It’s the greatest day for Baltimore. And it’s absolutely the greatest day for Gardiner’s customers,” says Greg Mullaney, one of the store manager. “I couldn’t be happier.”

This was the 3rd year Gardiner’s offered the Super Bowl promotion, but it was the first time the offer included the second-half kickoff.
