"Mattress Mack" opens Houston furniture stores to hundreds without power after storm

After a deadly storm swept through Texas, Jim McIngvale's Houston furniture store was packed but not with shoppers. McIngvale, who goes by Mattress Mack, is known for opening the doors of his furniture stores to those in need. So when a snowstorm left Texans without power or heat in the frigid cold, Mattress Mack invited hundreds in.


"Least we could do is open this furniture store to let people come into a warmer place," Mattress Mack told CBS Houston affiliate KHOU-TV. "Sofas and plenty available TVs, plenty of available mattresses, plenty of available and lots of hot food."

So far, he's opened his Richmond and Houston, Texas, Gallery Furniture stores as shelters.

1. Making hundreds of fiercely loyal customers in the process!

Mack is a LOT smarter than Joel Osteen, and a better Christian.

Head an interview with Mac on the overnite news. He's PROUD of the families he is helping, spent the night walking around the store checking on folks, said social distancing and family grouping was happening organically. His stores are "destination shopping", so there are some restaurant/food prep facilities, Lots of TV's, etc.

8. Osteen couldn't shine this man's shoes when it comes to "doing good works." MM is the man of God,

not Osteen.
