Professional sleep counselors facilitate peaceful slumber at more than 80 Mattress Discounters locations nationwide, where showrooms brim with mattresses from brands such as Sealy Posturepedic, Tempur-Pedic, and Space Age Foam. Unlike pet stores, Mattress Discounters encourages customers to lie on the merchandise, as sleep counselors use the Discover Your Comfort system to ask questions about sleep position and comfort level. With this information in hand, client and counselor select the right mattress for restful slumber, with each sleep surface backed by a 60-night comfort guarantee.

Skeins of yarn line the shelves at Stitch DC, forming a rainbow of colors made from silk, cotton, alpaca, mohair, and linen. Crafters can lose track of time paging through the store's how-to books, running threads between their fingers, or searching for the perfect tools—which include crochet hooks, knitting needles, and patterns—for upcoming projects. The stitchery haven acquaints patrons with needles and yarn in regular classes, progressing through the creation of scarves, lace, hats, and other full-body socks. Sewing and quilting classes also take place at the store.

Short of creating physical clouds to hold people aloft, Mattress Warehouse stocks almost every imaginable furnishing to help customers catch a few Z’s. Rows of name-brand mattresses from Sealy, Simmons Beautyrest, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic entice customers to replace their worn pad for new bedding, such as a standard mattress, a fluffy pillowtop unit, or a memory foam piece that conforms to bodies. Beyond mattresses, the warehouse also carries an ample collection of box springs, full bed sets with rails and headboards, and even premium futon mattresses that revitalize foldable couches.
