Local Houston businessman, Jim McIngvale owns Gallery Furniture. He did some incredible things for the city he loves.
When Hurricane Harvey hit, he opened he several locations as shelter for people. He even provided them with a meal on Thanksgiving.
Not only that, but Jim made a deal with Astros fans. If they beat the LA Dodgers and win the World Series, he would offer full refunds to anyone who spent more than $3,000.
Well, if you know what happened last year, the Astros won. Jim followed through on his deal. He dolled out more than $10,000,000.
He’s known as ‘Mattress Mack’ in Houston. Jim doesn’t do this for any special recognition. But, everyone deserves credit where it’s due. Houston Astros president Reid Ryan gave Jim a World Series championship ring; the Houston Astros’ first one.
Please watch with the sound on to see Mattress Mack receive an Houston Astros championship ring!! It was such an honor to be recognized by this incredible organization. Thank you to Reid Ryan, son of hall of famer Nolan Ryan, for coming down to personally deliver the ring, and for his tremendous work the club!! We all continue to be inspired by the Houston Astros and this great community!!
