An Evening with Mattress Mack
This Thursday, September 27, the Houston branch of the Main Street Chamber is hosting an evening with Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale. The event is free. You can RSVP here.
From Russell Johns:
One of the nation’s most successful independent furniture retailers. The owner of Gallery Furniture discusses “Free Enterprise.”
Known to many in Houston as “Mattress Mack”, Jim came to Houston in 1981 from Mississippi.
With only $5000 in his pocket, he built his business to over $200 million dollars in sales. His belief in free enterprise and pursuing your dreams, people must pull their own weight and be held accountable. His creed is “Work wins.” He is the consummate businessman who has been in the business of creating jobs for more than three decades. While he asserts that “Work is one of life’s greatest therapies,” his heart also lies in giving back to the community. His annual Christmas Furniture Giveaway, gifts to scholarship programs, medical care and the military – Jim is there helping those in need to get back on track. After 31 years of becoming successful through capitalism and free enterprise, join us for an engaging presentation from a man who cares about his employees, his customers and his community.
Don’t miss this wonderful evening!
