A member of the Delta Chi chapter at Indiana University shared the find with his fraternity brothers. Together, they bought about 4,200 of the chairs, spending about $50.
"Everyone tried to hop on," Jordan Bray, a current member of the fraternity, said.
At regular price, the 4,200 chairs would've cost about $1.4 million
But things didn't end there. U.S. Rep. Jim Banks sent a letter to Menards, asking the company to reconsider canceling the order.
Banks is an IU graduate and a former member of Delta Chi.
