Thinking About Buying a Mattress Online?

Over the years, we have witnessed a difference in how customers shop for their new mattress.

Back in the day, you set aside a day to go mattress shopping in your local stores. Today people visit your stores to try the beds and then, quite often return home to purchase that same bed online.

Because online dealer’s do not actually handle the mattress you purchase (receive, deliver and set-up in your home) they can often price the same product lower.

This practice has opened the door for a whole new group of bed-in-a-box entrepreneurs to pioneer an all out attack on retail mattress stores. Wild (and inaccurate) claims of price gouging and exaggerated profits has led customers to believe that ALL mattress stores are out to rip them off.

This simply is not true, but, once someone has said it…a certain amount of people will believe it no matter what. You can’t ‘unring a bell’ and so, retail businesses are now competing with an ever-growing list of ‘me too’ bed-in-a-box folks online.

I am not here to bash the online mattress dealers. The truth is this:

Every single mattress that we display in our stores is PERFECT for someone whether it be a $300 bed or a $3,000 one.

Likewise THAT VERY SAME MATTRESS will be the worst bed someone else has ever owned.

Mattresses are a very important and personal. Everyone has specific needs and expectations of their mattress. That’s why it is so important to be fitted properly for a mattress – something that can only be done by shopping retail and getting professional assistance with your choice.

At the same time, every single bed-in-a-box sold online, be it Casper, Helix, Saatva, ZenHaven, Purple (there are a TON of them…see partial list here) is perfect for someone and on the flip side, terrible for someone else.

However, when you shop online, you must rely on your own research and reviews to come to your own conclusions as to which would be the best for you.

SO…what is easier…

Pop into your local mattress store, bounce around on a few beds and actually FEEL what the mattress you are about to buy and be done with it…

or…

Spend a few days of your life researching the ever-growing list to figure out which bed-in-a-box is the best…and HOPE that you have made the right choice!

Whatever you do…I wish you luck and pleasant dreams!

We Went To The Las Vegas Furniture Market

AND…we’re back!

Busy World Market in Las VegasEarlier this week, we flew out the the World Market Center in Las Vegas.

We do this at least once every year so we can stay on top of what is neat and new and wonderful in the bedding industry.

Things change continuously – and the bedding industry is no different! By attending we are able to stay ahead of consumer trends and bring you the freshest, most innovative new sleep systems available in today’s busy world.

Las Vegas World Market 2017

The Las Vegas Furniture Market has a reputation for being the industry’s preeminent Market for finding new products, trends and design for your home.

Virtually all Las Vegas Market exhibiting companies – ranging from the world’s leading manufacturers to some of the smaller but very innovative companies – come to introduce their new products at each Market.

This market is so huge that retailers and journalists from across the globe come to view and cover the event.!

Beautyrest Silver WallWe thought it would be fun to post couple of pics to give you a sense of how that wonderfully fluffy mattress actually ends up in our store!

The buildings are tall and wide and there are literally THOUSANDS of exhibitors there. Good walking shoes are definitely required to attend!

We visited with all of the major bedding manufacturers that you have come to know and trust as well as scoping out a few new entries into the bedding world.

While we can’t show you all of the great new sleep systems here, just know that there are some new and exciting things coming this year in the wide world of sleep!

We take great pride in doing our homework and knowing what the best of the best products are out there so that we can bring them home to you.  Unlike the national chain bedding stores, we don’t just sell what ‘the boss’ tells us to.

We actually rub elbows with people from over 100 different countries at this huge International event so that we can see and feel for ourselves what the best products are.

It is always our goal to provide you with the very best sleep set available for the money – whether you want to spend a little or a lot on your bed!

Who Hates Mattress Shopping?

Almost everyone!

Pushy, uninformed sales people in an industry designed to confuse the shopper makes mattress shopping one of life’s less than pleasant experiences.

Having a little insight before hand can help you make better decisions that will benefit you in the long run.

It is very important to test, evaluate and purchase a mattress set that is designed to provide proper support and spinal alignment. Don’t think that you need to buy a very firm mattress set to experience support and spinal alignment. You may buy a mattress that is plush and still receive the best support and spinal alignment.

Proper Spinal Alignment

Remember, Comfort is what you feel when you lay on your bed – support is what you have felt when you awaken.

Select a mattress set that is comfortable. Dad was not right – a firm bed is NOT always best for your back!

Deep R.E.M., (Rapid Eye Movement), sleep cannot be accomplished if you are not comfortable in your bed. You may think that you have slept through the night, but, constant tossing and turning may prevent you from the deep REM sleep needed and desired for a full recharge.

An uncomfortable bed may trigger a feeling of restlessness when you awake.

  • Measure your current mattress set from the floor to the top of the mattress before embarking on your buying mission. Today, premium mattresses have more comfort layers making them higher. You may determine that you need a lower profile box spring/foundation beneath your new mattress to allow easy accessibility when you lay down.
  • For two people, purchase the largest mattress set that will fit in your bedroom. A full/double size mattress is 54″ wide. A mattress this size gives each person only 27″ of space which is the width size of a crib mattress to sleep on. Consider purchasing a queen which is 6″ wider and offers each 30″ per person or, better still, choose a King sized mattress and each you will have 38″ all to yourself!
  • Select a mattress set that is best for you by testing and evaluating comfort, size, and price.
  • Come to our Best Mattress Buys store at a time when you won’t be rushed. Take the time to try our various comfort level floor models and select the mattress set feel that is most comfortable for your needs after working with one our Sleep Specialists.
  • Wear comfortable clothing so that you will be relaxed when testing our mattresses.
  • Think about your needs and share them with one of our Sleep Specialists. In what position(s) do you sleep? Do you have back problems? Do you have shoulder or hip problems? Do you suffer from arthritis, fibermyalgia or other pressure sensitive issues? Have you been injured in an accident or do you have other medical issues that make you uncomfortable?
  • Allow one of our Sleep Specialists to begin your selection process on our varying comfort level floor models. Lay on each bed for 10 to 15 minutes, or longer if needed. We will never rush you.  Test the mattresses in the position(s) that you usually are in when you sleep at home. You should never try more than 5 mattresses to minimize selection and purchasing confusion. Narrow your selections to 2 mattress sets. Decide which one of the selected two is the most comfortable within your budget. Make your purchase confident that you have a *60 Day Comfort Guarantee should you find you mattress unsuitable after purchase.
  • A mattress and box spring/ foundation are designed to work as a set. It is always suggested that you purchase the set to ensure the best comfort and durability. Remember, most mattress manufacturers do not warranty their respective products on an old foundation or another foundation that is not a matching set.
