Astros win more than 63 games, furniture store out $4M

HOUSTON -- Mattress Mack's latest promotion will cost him big bucks after the Houston Astros won their 63rd game of the season on Sunday. Gallery Furniture is paying back about $4 million to customers.

Here is the promotion that was posted in April on the Gallery Furniture website:

"Get in the game with our Baseball Promo #1 - limited to the first 500 customers who purchase $6,300.00 or more from Gallery Furniture and have it delivered within one week. If the Houston Astros baseball team wins 63 or more games in the regular season, 100% of the furniture purchase price will be refunded to ALL 500 participating customers!"

KTRK-TV in Houston reached out to Mattress Mack Sunday evening and he said, "The customers won!"

The Houston Astros scored two runs in the ninth without a hit, including Dexter Fowler's bases-loaded walk for the tie-breaking run, and beat the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Sunday.

Owner Jim McIngvale says he picked the number because he just turned 63.
