Mattress Choice's sleep specialists take the time to educate guests as they lead them on tours through a showroom stocked with more than 30 models. They explain the technology and benefits of each mattress to guests who lie on as many mattresses needed until they find the comfiest fit. Familiar brand names such as Simmons Beautyrest and ComforPedic make up the showroom’s roster. A stockpile of accessories provisions sleepers with other necessary items—frames, Tempur-Pedic pillows—that pile atop already-snug mattresses to make them even more comfortable after long sleepwalks or sleep break dancing.
At more than 1,200 Mattress Firm locations around the country, shoppers sink into plush mattresses, recline on firm beds, and belly-flop onto pillow tops. Knowledgeable staffers can help customers create an ideal bedtime environment by dispensing advice based on sleep preferences and illuminating the difference between the many kinds of mattresses. And to the delight of their customers, much of Mattress Firm's bedding wears the label of a premium brand, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, or Stearns & Foster.
Gangs of ottomans and mattresses populate Atlantic Bedding and Furniture, whose continually changing designs from Coaster, Forbidden City, Harden, Sealy, Old Town Imports, and other top brands help customers capture the furniture species of their choice sans long waiting periods. Treat hard-working eye awnings to a decadent break with a solid hardwood Leonardo bed ($347–$516), backed by a strong, modern headboard the color of morning espresso but the flavor of tufted upholstery. Taking home a Davenport nightstand ($125) means never having to precariously perch glasses or bequeathed dentures on thin windowsills.

Carbon-dioxide tanks, all-grain beer kits, and high-gravity worts are just a few of the supplies in Operation Homebrew's rotating inventory. For more than 20 years, this stock has supplied shoppers with everything they need to brew wine and beer at home, while eschewing additives and extracts. In addition to kegs and beer kits, the shelves see full- and novelty-sized oak barrels as well as cheese-making kits and supplies, which pupils can use to complement the fruits of their labor from onsite beer- and wine-brewing classes.
Staffers at America's Mattress stores stock showrooms with sleep-inducing products to fit any preference, whether that's soft and pillowy or solid and firm. Many of the beds are made in Georgia, helping money stay in the local economy. These three shops are locally owned, though they are part of a large national network of mattress stores.
The teams there helps customers upgrade saggy sleeping situations with insomnia-tonics such as Serta perfect sleeper mattresses and Dr. Greene Sleep System beds, which were designed with input from an orthopedic surgeon. Other factory-direct mattresses from Serta include iComfort and Sertapedic. They compliment their vast selection of top-of-the-line mattresses with other bed-related accessories, including deluxe mattress protectors and headboards.
