Houston furniture store loses $7 million on Super Bowl promotion

Gallery Furniture founder Jim McIngvale, also known as "Mattress Mack," cannot be too pleased at the outcome of Sunday's Super Bowl game, because he is now forced to give away $7 million worth of furniture to customers who entered a promotion.

In the week leading up to the Super Bowl, Mattress Mack held a promotion offering customers, who purchased $6,000 or more worth of furniture, the chance to get their goods for free if Seattle won the Super Bowl. Otherwise, Mattress Mack would win if Denver prevailed.

We all know how the outcome of that turned out.
