Former Houstonians may be interested to know that Gallery Furniture burned down last night.
Sure, Mattress Mack's ads are cheesy. But Mattress Mack and his Gallery Furniture store have become a Houston institution over the past 25 years. I never had any complaints about the way they do business, and in fact prefer their sales techniques over the greasy, heavily cologned used car salesmen employed by companies such as Fingers (gone) and Star.
(Nevermind. I found out later that it was the warehouse that burned.)
