It's a dream situation when the person you choose to team-up with as co-owner of your family business is one of your best friends since grade 8.
Robert Wilson Sr, the founder of our store opened the doors for business back in 1964. That same year, his family of two became a family of three when his son, Bob Jr was born. Long before Robert Sr retired, his son and current owner, Bob ran the family business, helping shape it into what it is today. An original. And probably the most brutally honest mattress store you'll ever encounter.
In 2007, the opportunity to have his trusted friend join the family business presented itself. The timing couldn't have been better. It's a good fit for us as Richard is family. After all, our friends are like the family we choose to have. Isn't that so true? Learn More >>
Why is a Mismatch Mattress Your Best Value?
First, let us explain what a true mismatch mattress is. It's a mattress that is padded on both sides but with different fabric. Mismatch doesn't mean the pairing of a box or foundation with a different color fabric than the mattress. Mismatch mattresses can be made in all qualities and grades. And, not all mismatch mattresses are created equal. Ours are made with the best coils (800 continuous), the thickest, plushest quilted covers, fiber pad, 1/2" layer of foam and edge guard support to maximize your sleeping surface. All fabric panels are deluxe, for example, stretch knits, organic cotton or even made with bamboo. Some mismatch mattresses are plush on one side and firm on the other. Or they can have the same feel on both sides of the mattress. Guess what we sleep on? If you guessed a mismatch mattress, you're right. Mismatch mattresses are our #1 Best Selling Mattress.
Really, this is all the mattress most people need." -- Bob Wilson, co-owner, Mr. Mattress

Is a Mattress Sale Really a Sale?
When shopping for a mattress, we recommend you take your time and shop around. Decide to buy when you are ready to buy and try not to feel pressured because the “sale event” is over in one day. We all like to get a deal, but trust us – sales are really not sales. They are a marketing hype to get the consumer to buy before they loose out on a “deal”. Is it really true that some poor soul spent 25%, or even 50% more for the same mattress just days before? For more tips and truths. Download Our Mattress Buyer’s Guide (PDF) >>
