Jim and Linda McIngvale began selling furniture out of a model home in Houston in 1981. The couple eventually expanded to a patchwork of several model homes and outdoor tents to their current 100,000-square-foot showroom, Gallery Furniture. The store stands out in a few ways. McIngvale stocks everything in his on-site warehouse and guarantees customers same-day delivery. Gallery's staff is also paid on salary, not commission, so they're incentivized to help customers rather than make quick sales. Finally, the store features everything from daily free meals for shoppers and staff to an on-site playground and tennis court for kids. Gallery opened a second Houston store this year.
