'Mattress Mack' Opens His Texas Furniture Stores For Residents Seeking Shelter From Cold

‘Mattress Mack’ opened his Texas furniture stores to provide refuge from the raging winter storm.

In the midst of a winter storm that swept most of the nation, millions of individuals and families across the country were left displaced as a result of power outages, flooding from burst pipes, food shortages, and other unprecedented cold-related issues.

In Texas, one man lent a helping hand to his community by opening the doors of his mattress and furniture store to Texas families who were left without a place to stay during this winter weather phenomenon.

Houston Texas resident, Jim McIngvale, better known by his nickname, “Mattress Mack,” is the owner and operator of the mattress retail chain “Gallery Furniture.”

After the winter storm hit Texas, leaving millions of residents without power, water, and food, Mattress Mack did not hesitate to open the doors of his Houston store to families without a proper place to spend the night.

Mattress Mack is no stranger to taking in those in need, however. In 2017 Mattress Mack opened his doors to take in those in his area affected by the devastating destruction left by Hurricane Harvey.

Now he’s back, allowing local residents the opportunity to come and stay overnight at his store, providing food, heat, bathrooms, furniture to sleep on, and above all: camaraderie to the members of his community.

“We are more than happy to open this furniture store to serve the community because that’s why we exist,” Mattress Mack said in an interview. “It’s a tough situation and we try and make it a little easier for them by getting them on a good Tempurpedic mattress, making sure they have lots of warm food, and lots of camaraderie here--with 300 people here.”

"In all things, I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35
