Aggie Win Costs Ashley Furniture

Here’s a good Wisconsin connection that allows me to brag about my Alma Mater’s sweet victory in their opening game.

A College Station furniture store says it will keep its promise to pick up the tab for more than $1 million in merchandise after Texas A&M defeated South Carolina on the gridiron.

Following the pattern of Houston furniture store owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, the College Station Ashley Furniture HomeStore announced Aug. 16 it would reimburse the full cost of furniture purchased Aug. 16-27 if the Aggies beat the Gamecocks by more than 10 points.

As it turned out, A&M prevailed 52-28 at the Aug. 28 game in Columbia, S.C.

    Thank God for promotion insurance.  It’ll only cost the store 15%.

    Considering the amount of pub they’re getting right now, probably worth the $150K.
