The TV-Mattress Connection
There's one person who's not all that happy when Mike Tawil makes fifty dollars on a TV, though, and that's John Wall, owner of TV Warehouse on South Industrial (behind the PTO Thrift Shop). Though he smiles, shrugs, and repeats the time-honored bromide about competition being good for everyone, he was a little surprised to find himself competing with his former tenant.
Tawil, when interviewed, didn't mention that last summer he had a mattress store on South Industrial, a space he sublet from Wall. Wall started his business in college, flipping TVs he bought on eBay.
