They allow buyers to test each mattress to see which one will be the most supportive for jump-happy monkeys and they assist in filling out bedrooms with a selection of stylish Acme Furniture pieces. As they steer customers through the warehouse-style showroom, they dispense helpful advice on how to determine an ideal level of firmness and what to expect with a memory-foam mattress.
Mattress Firm's large selection of beds from such brand names as Sealy, Simmons Beauty Rest, and TempurPedic ranges from the soft, cushy Direct Milan pillow top (starting at $398) to the firm-and-supportive Direct Havana (starting at $178).
