    Mattress Mack keeps giving back

    HOUSTON — Sheltering Hurricane Harvey storm victims kept Gallery Furniture and Jim McIngvale busy this summer. Then came his generous gift of 40 flights and tickets to Los Angeles and World Series Game 6 for lucky Harvey first responder. Now, Thanksgiving dinner is on Mattress Mack. According to local reports, the owner of the Top 100 company has planned an afternoon feast at his flagship store for thousands. It’s part of a continuing lesson on service for the industry (and for his three-year-old grandchild). See more about it here.

    Did you hear the rumor about Las Vegas Market?

    There is a rumor going around. Normally we don’t report rumors, but this is a column, not a news story, so bear with me. The rumor is that some manufacturers exhibiting at the upcoming Las Vegas Market are filling up their dance cards a little earlier than usual.

    Aggressive online prediction comes true … 13 years later

The ad ran in our 2004 Bedding Yearbook and was dated Nov. 29, 2004. Now, almost exactly 13 years later, it is clear that 1-800-Mattress was well ...

    What’s a thankful tree and how do you grow it?

    It’s the week of Thanksgiving and a perfect time for my turn in the column rotation because I have been thinking a lot lately about gratitude. One of my family traditions this time of year is called the Thankful Tree. A branch taken from our yard is placed in a vase and adorned with cut-out paper leaves on which family and friends who come over can write something for which they are thankful. One of the leaves I will be writing this year expresses my immeasurable gratitude for a few outstanding individuals who have served as mentors during my ...
