In the eight years since the start of Local Furniture Outlet, the cherished baby business of Mr. Aaron Masterson has grown up fast?from a 2,000-square-foot metal warehouse to four locations and more than 80,000 combined square feet of furniture. But the success didn't go to Aaron?s head. The proud father still traverses showrooms in casual flip-flops, enforcing a no-competition policy so that loyal staff members don?t feel pressured to make a quota. The stripped-down showrooms allow for lower price tags on direct-from-manufacturer brands such as Ashley, Simmons, and Crown Mark. Patrons are invited to peruse dining-room, living-room, and bedroom sets?or ?kick the tires,? as Aaron puts it?without the pushy-push of larger retailers, who may use turkey legs to reward team members for sales.
Since 1977, Factory Mattress Sales has helped patrons create comfortable sleeping environments within their homes. At locations throughout Austin and San Antonio, they stock mattresses crafted by trusted brands ranging from Sealy to Simmons to Tempur-Pedic. Shoppers can peruse beds with features including Beautyrest pocketed coils, temperature-regulated surfaces, or memory foam that records imprints of dreams, and they can also find items such as bed frames and pillows.
Selection isn't the only reason to visit Factory Mattress Sales. A 111% price guarantee undercuts competitors' pricing, and a 366-night comfort guarantee allows patrons to test out beds for more than a full year. Extensive background checks ensure that the delivery drivers who chauffeur beds to homes are careful and courteous.
Since 1983, Austin Mattress's staffers have utilized their in-depth knowledge of sleeping surfaces and the sleeping process to help curate a vast collection of top-quality mattresses. They assess patrons' unique sleep needs before making thoughtful recommendations from an immense inventory of mattresses from brands such as Restonic and Corsicana Bedding. Memory-foam, latex, and gel mattresses line the showroom alongside traditional innerspring varieties, and each one is forged from eco-friendly materials, such as natural latex, soy-based foam, and Rumpelstiltskin’s beard hair. To enhance the cushy slumbering surfaces, Austin Mattress' on-site sister store, Beds n Brass, proffers a fleet of elegant, wrought-iron and specialty bed frames from such brands as Wesley Allen and Old Biscayne Designs.
