Houston's Mattress Mack furniture stack to 140,000 SFHouston's Mattress Mack furniture stack to 140,000 SFhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=45152014-04-01T08:06:00Z2014-04-01T09:00:00Z

RICHMOND - Gallery Furniture is going big with the addition of a 140,000-sf store off the Grand Pkwy., next to the Palladium Theater. The store is expected to open in December in southwest Houston in Richmond.

This marks Gallery Furniture's third Houston-area location and, more significantly, will be the furniture retailer's largest store. Its flagship store, located at 6006 North Fwy., is 110,000 sf. Its other store is at 2411 Post Oak Blvd.

Gallery Furniture owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale plans to hire between 50 and 75 new employees to work at the store.

“It’s a bold move, but we feel like there is a demand there,” McIngvale said. “We feel like the location is really good, next to the Palladium Theater on the Grand Parkway and near Sugar Land.”

Like its sister stores, the new location will include a variety of furniture inventory as well as an indoor playground, parrots, monkeys and a full restaurant. It will also provide a space for residents of The Brookwood Community, a residential and vocational program for adults with developmental disabilities, to craft and sell their art and homegrown plants.
