Why You Should Consider Buying Your Mattress Locally


Are there advantages to buying your mattress from a local shop rather than a large retail chain?

Many people who end up buying a mattress dread the process—dealing with salespeople and trying to find the right mattress for you, instead of just being sold on the most expensive bed regardless of whether or not it’s the right fit, can be pretty difficult. However, working with a local mattress store rather than a large chain gives your salesperson more freedom to recommend what they think you really need, rather than what will make them the most money. Let’s take a look at why it’s wise to shop for your mattress locally!

Be Wary of Sales

Often, big chains that stock mattresses will advertise sales for their products—what they don’t tell you is that they’re actually marking the bed up then artificially adding a sale onto it, so while the price doesn’t actually go down, they can say that it’s 60 percent off. Instead, it’s good to look to a local company who doesn’t try to blow your mind with a constant barrage of “sales,” and instead can offer you a quality mattress at a quality price.

Considering the Flexibility of Local Mattress Companies

Working with a local company means that they can be much more flexible if need-be. If you’re concerned about delivery or getting a larger bed in your home, then you may be able to work something out with a local company whereas a bigger chain could give you difficulties as they are subject to the whims of whatever policies are set by their corporate office.

Better Knowledge, Better Experience

Local shops are staffed by people who have been doing this for years and years and are invested in ensuring that their customers get the best. If a local shop owner is able to make a sale—and give the customer a product they really want at a good price—they know they may get repeat business or referrals later, so it’s in their vested interest to do well. A salesperson at a chain may not have that same investment in retaining customers. Plus, not every salesperson at a chain has the same experience or knowledge levels that someone at a local shop will.
