Salesman Dubbed ‘Mattress Mack’ Lets Flood Victims Sleep In His Showroom

Tropical Storm Imelda has been inundating Texas with rain, resulting in at last four deaths and trapping or displacing thousands with heavy flooding. One bright spot among all the destruction and chaos, however, is a story of generosity and kindness from a local business owner who’s been nicknamed “Mattress Mack.”

“Mattress Mack,” whose real name is Jim McIngvale, is the 68-year-old owner of Gallery Furniture, a  furniture store in the Houston area.

Now, just as he did when Texas was battered by Hurricane Harvey in 2017, McIngvale has opened his mattress showroom to those fleeing the flood, giving the beleaguered and bedless citizens of Houston a place to rest and a whole lot of hope.

What’s more, like he did in 2017, “Mack” also dispatched his furniture delivery trucks to go pick up victims of the storm whose own vehicles may have been destroyed or are unreachable.

The way McIngvale sees it it’s all pretty cut and dried. As he told the Washington Post in an interview:

“I’m a half-capitalist and half-social-worker. I can’t let my people drown.”

And when receiving storm refugees a mattress showroom is pretty much the perfect location. As McIngvale told the Washington Post:

“It’s so easy to open the doors and let them in. … They’ve got pretty much all the creature comforts they need. We let them in and take care of them, just let them know that people care about them.”
