Declared a 2011 finalist for the area's Best Mattress Store by readers of the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Mattress Outlet has culled an extensive arsenal of mattresses from top-brand manufacturers for more than 30 years. At eight locally owned locations throughout the Tennessee Valley, its knowledgeable staffers navigate showrooms that brim with cushy memory-foam slumbering surfaces from brands such as Serta and Tempur-Pedic. The staff procures the store's inventory from top manufacturers, who have partnered with Mattress Outlet for years, working to keep the prices affordable and to ensure no under-the-bed monsters are damaged during travel.
An eclectic boutique that showcases a continually rotating stock of stylish items and artifacts to outfit homes and gardens, The Potter’s Garden also treats patrons to complimentary gift wrapping with any purchase. Shoppers can pick up Wind & Willow cheeseball mixes ($3.99+) to whip up in case a child's cherished baseball goes over the fence, or they can store a selection of hot dips and salsas for spontaneous get-togethers ($3.99+). Fire pots in an array of sizes ($13.99–$100+) safely contain and cradle flames on an outdoor patio, and a palatial birdhouse ($14.99+) extends a respectable gesture of goodwill toward humankind’s feathered friends. A soy candle can set the mood for a dinner party, imbue a room with a pleasant scent, or distract a visiting fire-breathing dragon while you call 911.
