“Grateful for everything, Entitled to nothing” is Jim McIngvale’s motto.
Ask anyone in Houston who will “Save you money?” and they’ll likely laugh, smile and say “Gallery Furniture” or “Mattress Mack”. You can see why they smile after seeing some of the crazy commercials below – but that’s not all there is to Mr. McIngvale. Yes, he does own Gallery Furniture which he started with $5,000 on the side of the freeway and under tents 30+ years ago and now has three, huge locations. Gallery Furniture is now a multi-million dollar company that provides employment for 400+ folks in Houston. That in itself is beyond impressive, but actually knowing what he has done and continues to do for the Houston community is what to me, is far more impressive!
