McIngvale goes on to say that the furniture company's accountant is "pulling his hair out" and that the accountant told McIngvale he was "crazy" but McIngvale is confident the publicity will pay off in the end for the company.

“It worked for making the customer say ‘This guy does what he says he's going to do,’” McIngvale said.

There will be a celebration at the store on February 17 and that's when over 1,000 of the company's customers will get back an average of $7,000 in refunds. The company's website states the news: “Customers Win $7,000,000.”

Over 1,000 customers will receive the happy refunds.

Those refunded customers are going to be delighted and it will be like an early Valentine's Day present for them.
