The promotion involves Morris stores, including Morris Home Furnishings and Ashley HomeStore, located in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus, and Florence, Ky.
Morris Furniture Company ran a similar promotion at its 15 stores for people who bought $1,999 or more of furniture between Dec. 17, 2014 and Jan. 1, 2015. The company said it would refund the money customers paid if the Ohio State football team won by 7 points or more against the University of Oregon Ducks.
More than 500 customers won free furniture when Ohio State won. The promotion cost the store nearly $1.5 million in furniture with the Buckeye’s 42-20 win.
“This is the first time our company has created anything like this. It’s exciting to encourage every eligible voter to get out and vote. Ohio is once again a key battleground state with all eyes focused on how our citizens decide the future direction of our country. With just a few weeks left before the election, Ohio will be the center of attention for all candidates and news organizations,” said Robert Klaben, Morris Furniture Company vice president of Advertising and Marketing.
