CHICAGO-- Art Van Furniture may be dishing out a lot of cash after this weekend.
As part of a winter promotion, the company promised to give all of their customers free furniture if they purchased it on specific days and if it snowed more than three inches on Sunday, February 1, 2015. And by the looks of it, that certainly does not seem like it will be a problem.
Rick Cote, the store’s owner may be the last person you’d expect to be hoping for a snowy Super Bowl Sunday-- but he is thrilled.
“Believe it or not, we're excited about it,” Cote said, “We want our customers to get free furniture!”
He’s not worried about the two million dollar gamble his company took-- that's because they're insured.
That snow promotion is underwritten by Lloyd’s of London. They say they like their customer’s odds this weekend.
So will the company have to pay out the money?
We will see what Mother Nature decides.
