Slumber expert Roger Wardell staffs each of his Sleep Doctor Mattress Stores with knowledgeable employees who help to match shoppers with surfaces that complement their dozing styles. A full-size basic firm mattress by American Pedic ($219) supports stomach sleepers with memory foam, and Serta's twin-size Dura Pillowsoft ($499) cuddles tired muscles with inner springs and a 6-foot spoon.
At Mattress Closeout Center, the staff uses negotiation skills to continuously replenish a diverse inventory of brand-name mattresses—many of them culled from factory overstocks, liquidations, last-year models, and overruns. While grazing through one of the brand-name liquidation center's four locations, guests can sip a cup of complimentary Starbucks coffee or bottle of Coca Cola and research consumer reviews and retail prices on the store's iPad. Mattress Closeout Center also provides exact lists of inventory and pricing online, with a comparison of the store's discount prices beside the normal retail prices. The store's well-established rapport is also backed by myriad testimonials from satisfied sleepers and bounce-happy trampoline enthusiasts.
The hibernation experts at Mattress & Futon Shoppe help foster deep sleep with cushions from top brands such as Sealy, Stearns & Foster, and Corsicana. Well-versed in all forms of sleep habits, the store employees are happy to expound on the finer points of each mattress they keep in stock, which range from traditional innerspring beds to high-tech gel memory-foam mattresses. If your new mattress doesn't feel right or already has a family of monsters sleeping under it, Mattress & Futon Shoppe has a 100-day Don't Worry Sleep Happy comfort warranty, and you can return the unwanted item to one of 13 convenient locations.
Most employees are chastised for sleeping on the job, but for the experts at US-Mattress.com, sleeping might be the job. In fact, the employees are responsible for getting to know the new beds on the market. They then assign each mattress a place on their 10-point comfort scale.
The comfort scale isn't the only tool that buyers can use to filter US-Mattress.com's catalogue. You can sort mattresses by brand to see offerings from Stearns & Foster, Sealy, and Simmons Beautyrest, among others. You might also narrow down the best mattress for your sleeping style, whether you prefer to snooze on your side, on your back, or on a hammock above the bed. There are even specialized mattresses for conditions such as arthritis. And, if you change your mind within 100 days of purchasing a mattress, you can exchange it for another under the company's guarantee.
