Don't buy your mattress sight unseen, by phone or through
the Internet. You must go in and lay down on one to
get the true feeling. We can show you the quality and
you can tell us your comfort preference.
2. Get Below the Surface.
It's imperative that the mattress buyer sees what is in the
mattress. The physical make up and the types of
materials and upholstery work in the mattress and box will
let the consumer know what sort of quality they are
receiving for the dollar they are spending. Don't
judge a mattress by the cover; make the sales person show
you what's inside.
3. Sale or Value?
Just because it's on sale doesn't mean it's a good
deal. Most mattress stores use sales as a way to
generate excitement and get customers through their
doors. Be wary of these tactics. Just because an
item is on sale doesn't necessarily make it a good value.
4. Details Count.
If you purchase a queen or king set, the frame should have a
center support. King and queen size mattresses feel
better and last longer with the proper frame. An
inferior frame could take precious years away from the life
of your mattress.
It’s not always about the mattress or pillow, but rather
what you do before you go to sleep that counts.
