January 23, 2014,
HOUSTON — Gallery Furniture is refunding $600,000 in purchases to customers who picked the correct National Football League conference champions from this past weekend's playoff games, Houston's KHOU television station reported.
The Top 100 retailer promoted the four-day deal with favorable odds in a commercial promising to refund purchases to customers who bought more than $5,000 in goods. All they had to do was pick the winners of both games.
"We're getting ready to give back $600,000 and it will hurt the bank account but will make those customers account happy," McIngvale said in the report.
