Gallery Furniture Continues to Give Back to Houstonians in Need

Last Tuesday night was a very special night at Westside Tennis & Fitness Club, as a panel of judges, including prominent business leaders and media from Houston came together in support of the 28th Annual Gallery Furniture Holiday Giveaway. And Love’s very own Billie Van Slyke, Jessica Manning and I had the pleasure of partaking in this event as well.

All the participants mingled, munched and most importantly, read through numerous touching stories submitted by friends and family of the nominees in need. By the end of the evening, 20 exceptional and deserving families were chosen to receive a house full of furniture this holiday season.

Throughout the next week, Gallery Furniture will deliver furniture specifically selected to fit each family’s needs based on the letters submitted by family and friends describing the situation.

For the past 27 years Gallery Furniture has granted holiday wishes for Houston families in need. This year, a total of thirty deserving families will be granted a full house of furniture. Check out all the letters under that Christmas tree! Gallery Furniture received over 4,500 letters this year.

Each delivery is documented by Gallery Furniture with photos. Here are some of the photo albums Gallery Furniture has collected over the years.

After reading through the heart-wrenching stories on Tuesday night, it served as a reminder of how fortunate many of us are and that it is extremely important to give back, especially during the holiday season. Whether it is donating winter clothes to a shelter, volunteering your time or raising money for a cause you believe in, remember to help those in need in your own community and give thanks for what you have and love those dear to you.

Happy Holidays!

90% OF GALLERY FURNITURE “PICK YOUR TEAM” ENTRANTS FAVOR INDIANAPOLIS

Gallery Furniture owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale is giving Houstonians one more chance to tell him who they believe will win the big football game this weekend and so far more than 90% of entrants believe it will be the team from Indianapolis.

To participate, customers must purchase $5,000 or more worth of furniture, electronics, rugs, accessories or bedding at either Gallery Furniture location beginning January 26 and have it delivered by 5pm on February 7 (game day). They will then have the opportunity to choose the winner of this weekend’s Big Game in Miami – the team from Indianapolis or the team from New Orleans. If the customer’s team of choice wins, they will receive 50% of their total purchase back in the form of a refund.

Gallery Furniture recently hosted two similar contests; one for the college bowl championship game featuring Texas and Alabama, another the other for the championship game between the team from New Orleans and the team from Minnesota. A party was held for all the winners and refunds were paid out at both of the Gallery Furniture locations, I-45 North and Post Oak near the Galleria. Mack refunded over $540,000 in the first game.

Gallery Furniture to Hold Second Contest to Pick Football Champ

Gallery Furniture owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale is once again asking Houstonians to tell him who they think will win the big football game and in return will refund ½ of their purchase if they pick the winner.

Customers that buy $5,000 or more worth of furniture, electronics, rugs, accessories or bedding at either Gallery Furniture location between January 19 and have it delivered by 5pm on January 24 will have the chance to pick the winner of this week’s big game in New Orleans between the team from Minnesota or the team from New Orleans. If the customer’s team of choice wins, they will receive 50% of their total purchase price back in the form of a refund.

Gallery Furniture hosted a similar contest for the college bowl championship game in early January, featuring the team from Texas and the team from Alabama. Alabama took the game, making winners out of customers who backed them. Over $540,000 in refunds were paid out at a party held for the winners this past Sunday at both Gallery Furniture locations, I-45 and Post Oak near the Galleria.

“We had a great response to our last contest with Texas and Alabama and due to numerous requests, we are doing it again,” said McIngvale. “As one customer put it ‘I get beautiful furniture in my home and may get half of my purchase price back. This is a win-win situation!’”

GALLERY FURNITURE TO REFUND OVER $540,000 AT SUNDAY EVENT

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale will welcome hundreds of his closest friends, followers and fans to Gallery Furniture this Sunday, January 17 as he throws a party for his Twitter followers and Facebook fans and refunds over $540,000 to those who “backed ‘Bama” in his recent College Football Championship Contest.

Customers that purchased $5,000 or more worth of furniture, electronics, rugs, accessories or bedding at either Gallery Furniture location between December 31 and 5pm on January 7 were given the chance to pick the winner of this year’s college football championship game. Alabama proved victorious and now customers who chose the Crimson Tide will receive half of their Gallery Furniture purchase back in the form of a refund check on Sunday night.

The party begins at 6pm at both locations and will feature food from Post Oak Grill, special deals just for Facebook and Twitter and a first look at the all new Gallery Furniture website. Social media is a growing part of McIngvale’s marketing strategy and by throwing the party and offering specials just for them he hopes to create a value for those who follow his posts.

“When we first started with Facebook and Twitter, I wasn’t clear on how social media could help business,” said McIngvale. “But then I saw the power of the people on social media and that, coupled with traditional mediums we were already invested in like TV, radio and print, makes for a winning marketing strategy.”
