(Toledo News Now) - Some lucky Art Van shoppers have been reimbursed for their purchases.
The store held a ‘Let it Snow' promotion this winter: if at least three inches of snow fell Feb. 1, those who made purchases on Jan. 17 would be refunded.
Because almost 10 inches of snow fell that day, more than 200 lucky winners have received their refund checks.
“[Art Van refunded] almost $300,000, and as a company we gave $2.3 million in Toledo, Chicago and Fort Wayne,” said local store manager Bill Salisbury.
One of the winners, Gay Hornyak, traveled from her home in Port Clinton that day to the store in Holland to purchase a bed during the promotion.
“[I'm] shocked,” she said. “That's the best thing that ever happened to me with winning something.”
The company also refunded sales tax and delivery charge fees.
