James Franklin McIngvale, also known as Mattress Mack, is a businessman and philanthropist from Houston, Texas. He is known for owning and operating the Gallery Furniture retail chain.

He will be sharing his successful wisdom and knowledge with our members and guests.


About Jim

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale founded Gallery Furniture in 1981 with $5,000 and a red pickup truck at an abandoned model home park in Houston. It’s now the 52nd-biggest furniture store in the country with annual sales of $148.1 million, according to PBM Strategic Insights’ Furniture Today. McIngvale is famous for his TV commercials that feature his fast-talking sales pitch (to save on ad time he has to buy), outlandish outfits (the early ones had him dressed up as a mattress) and the ending phrase, “Save You Money!” He has lured customers into his stores with furniture-making demonstrations, trampolines made out of mattresses and animal exhibits. He is also known for his big promotions, his latest promising to refund bedding-related purchases of $3,000 or more if the Houston Astros win the World Series this season.
