    I didn't want to sound like a Negative Nellie, but yea, first thing I said to my wife was "I guess he has some inventory he wanted to dump". 2nd thought was disgruntled employee.

    I heard about it this morning on the radio. They said all the employees gathered in the parking lot and sang, God bless America as the firefighters put out the blaze.:gotme:

    Keep on Sellin' Mack!

    I can personally attest that there was no insurance scam involved here. I know Mack and worked for Mack for a few years, and I can assure you that as inviting as "dumping some old inventory" would be, he would much rather see his 350+ employees working. You may think the "character", the $$$maker, is capable of fraud, but I can attest the "man behind the mattress" would not be able to see his employees out of work. Mack has some of the strongest moral values of anyone I know. When it comes down to it, he is one of the most honest and transparent men I have had the pleasure of working for. As far as the new store, that location still used the North Freeway as a warehouse hub. So that one is relying on merchandise from the trucks that did not get unloaded into the warehouse last night. Mack has supported the city of Houston more than anybody I can think of, so I'm supporting him. I'm on my way to go pick up a new mattress tonight. I don't have a pressing urge for a guest room mattress, but I do have a pressing urge to support Mattress Mack! He's a warrior and he'll be back bigger and better than ever...

    I think anyone is. I tell me kids this ... Never trust anyone, you can barely trust yourself :rofl:


    Either way, he never put a penny in my pocket, he never took a penny from my pocket, and his wacky commercials never bothered me.
