Top news coming in to a warm San Francisco today is about a loss due to the Super Bowl

That loss is worth over $7 million.

According to ABC 7 News, the Super Bowl bet has now cost the owner of a furniture store in Houston dearly because the Seahawks ran rings around the Broncos this weekend.

According to the news source:

"Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale said that he would give a full refund to customers who spent $6,000 or more at Gallery Furniture in the two weeks leading up to the game and had their orders delivered by 5pm on Sunday" said ABC affiliate KTRK

And McIngvale was true to his word. He announced on the company's website that he would, indeed, let his customers win. He wrote “Customers Win $7,000,000.”

"That's quite astonishing, but I'll bet the customers are very pleased!" says San Francisco resident, Alice Marshall.
