They might not have as many commercials or radio ads, and they might not be as well-known across the country, but if you want the best service (and best products) when purchasing your mattress, local mattress stores are almost always your best bet.
Why? Well, local mattress stores tend to:
- Use locally sourced materials – Wouldn’t you rather help the economy of your own community than put money in some corporation’s pocket? Local mattress stores typically use local wood, fabrics, and facilities, and that gives the economy in your city a boost on the whole.
- Employ local employees – Local mattress stores also employ people right in your town, helping them earn a living, care for their families, and live their lives. When you purchase from a local store, you’re ensuring these local people get to keep their jobs for a long time to come.
- Know the needs of your region – Local stores are also more familiar with the needs of the local people. Is it particularly rainy and humid? Then they’ll offer mattresses that won’t build up mold or mildew. Is it hot and arid? Then a local store will carry mattresses that don’t transfer and store heat. It’s the best way to get what you need, considering your exact location.
- Give you more personalized attention – At a big-box store, you’re just another number. Local mattress stores are more willing to work hard, serve you, and give you the one-on-one attention you deserve. Ultimately, this results in a better customer experience and a better purchasing decision in the long run.
