The CEO of Houston-based Gallery Furniture lost $7 million on a promotion that promised to give customers who shopped at his stores their money back if the Seattle Seahawks won Sunday.
Gallery Furniture customers in Houston, Texas will see $7 million in refunds after owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale made a losing bet on this year’s Super Bowl game.
In a promotions move which many would call insane, the Houston gambler promised he would give a full refund to customers who spent $6,000 or more at his furniture store in the two weeks leading up to the game IF the Denver Broncos won the game.
