DENVER - Marguerite Padbury is a life-long Broncos fan. So she thought it was only right to combine her business with her favorite team.
Padbury owns The Beach Club, a tanning salon and spa that counts some pro athletes among its clients. At the beginning of football season, Padbury thought it would be a good idea to offer a discount every time the Broncos win the game: one percent off for every point by which the Broncos outscore the competition. This week, the Broncos beat the Eagles by 32 points. That's 32 percent off. It's a much bigger discount than she ever thought she'd give.
"I was thinking, maybe up to 20 percent," Padbury laughed. "Peyton Manning has done a wonderful jobmaybe a little too well!"
Padbury has heard that the Broncos could have even wider point margins against other teams. She says customers who see the 32% off orange and blue sign on Colorado Boulevard have been coming in to take advantage.
"We are huge Broncos fans," she said, vowing to continue the discounts for as long as the Broncos are playingperhaps in a championship game.
"Please, Peyton, take us to the Superbowl, but don't make the point difference so large," she joked. "If they win by 50 points or more, I may have to put up a sign that says 'Gone Fishin.'"
