Sleep Outfitters' savvy sleep experts help slumber lovers find peaceful shuteye with a wide selection of name brand mattresses. Adroit sleep Sherpas lead bedtime cravers round the mountains of Sealy, Serta, Simmons, Stearns & Foster, and Tempur-Pedic mattresses, pausing to take in cushions of solid foam, bouncing innersprings, and a conspicuous lack of "Smoke On the Water" beds. Rest your noggin on a Serta Memory Foam queen-size mattress set ($597), or repose your tired torso on a Simmons Beautyrest Classic Plush queen-size mattress set ($1,199). Once somnolent souls have selected a mattress on which to paint their dreamscapes, they can opt into Sleep Outfitters' five-star delivery service, where burly mattress gods deliver and set up mattresses and remove old bedding. Indecisive catnappers enjoy the comforts of the 30-night comfort guarantee that permits two fortnights in which to decide if the right choice was made, ensuring hibernating humans won't be left with nightmares starring jilted futons and vengeful box springs.
For the team at Wildcat Mattress, getting a good night's sleep is serious business. That's why they don't employ pushy sales tactics to coerce customers into buying just any mattress. Instead, they educate guests, answering questions in person and providing research tools on their website.
In addition to guiding guests toward a good night's sleep, the team also works to support the local economy. They source the coils and foams that go into their inventory directly from Kentucky-based manufacturers.
