"A U.S. Congressman from Indiana wants Menards to make good on an IU fraternity's order of 4,200 chairs at a significantly discounted rate"

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.
