Houston Mattress Store Owner Opens His Business To Hundreds Of Hurricane Evacuees

Mattress Mack, Jim McIngvale, opens his two stores as shelters for those who are homeless after Hurricane Harvey.

He’s known around Houston as, “Mattress Mack.”

Long before Hurricane Harvey ravaged his hometown, Jim McIngvale, was known throughout the region for his good works.

This week is a huge cherry on top.

Without anyone asking him to do it, McIngvale opened his stores, turning them into evacuation centers for anyone who needed a safe, dry place to stay.

Even better, he sent his store’s trucks to pick up folks who might be stranded.

No,

No one asked.

McIngvale would tell you he didn’t have a choice.

It’s just the right thing to do.

CBS News has done a fine job telling his story.
