CHICAGO -- Nearly 2,000 people in the Chicago area just received free furniture.

That's all because of a promotion by Art Van Furniture.

If customers bought furniture on one of four specific days in January, they would get a full refund if it snowed over three inches at O’Hare on Sunday.

That definitely happened, so now the store is on the line for $2.4 million.

That will be covered by an insurance policy.

Art Van says it’s glad this happened because it got more customers in their stores.
