Spots and stains sail into the sunset at The Greener One-Price-Cleaner, a full-service and environmentally conscious haven for waterless washing. Plants breathe a collective sigh of contentment as professional cleaners make soiled vestments sparkle with organic solvents before storing them for pickup in biodegradable garment bags. For a set price of $1.99, pants and ties worn during pie-eating contests and too-powerful power lunches undergo a thorough cleaning and pressing, and shirts hung on the dry moving rack shiver with excitement knowing their last horrifying home bath need never be repeated, as each dry cleanse costs a friendly $0.99. Patrons already boasting meticulous torso tents can finally jump on beds with reckless abandon before sending complete sets of bed linens in for cleaning that leaves them feeling softer than a baby-powdered puppy. The Greener One-Price-Cleaner also freshens up precious leather and furs and preserves wedding dresses with an in-house service for future brides-to-be.

Additionally, American Mattress doubles down on each of its beds with a 30-day comfort guarantee and a 60-day best-price guarantee.

Brand-new mattresses from manufacturers such as Stearns & Foster, Spring Air Back Supporter, King Koil, Comfort Solutions, Americana, and Kathy Ireland Collection saturate the showroom floors, offering a variety of firmness levels to suit beds, budgets, and pillow forts of all sizes. Each an experienced sleeper themselves, staff members are well-suited to assist customers in their quest for sounder slumber, and each purchase is backed by a 110% price guarantee should the same mattress appear somewhere else for less. In addition to supporting spines, Discount Mattress helps buttress the Illinois economy by selling mattresses that are made locally, and caters to busy schedules by offering same-day delivery to homes from the western suburbs to downtown Chicago.
