    Need to replace your mattress every 6 years now instead of 8.

    A mattress will last longer if you change your sheets frequently....

    Not hardly, they get all squished and collapsed.

    They are suffering from all of the mail order mattresses I am sure. Mattress sales were a racket anyway, margins way too high. They have come down a bit but still ridiculous.

    They may still get squished, but they won't stink as bad....

    There is no good reason to not mail-order a mattress.

    Usually one can find nice mattresses curbside. It's always environmentally good to repurpose.

    Never spent more than $50.00 on a mattress. The secret is no cats allowed and may want to keep your own toenails trimmed up!

    The Fad of the day is pillows and mattresses. The young folks no longer brag on their "Hot Chevrolets",. Today they brag on the their $5,000 dollar beds. :countingsheep: :drool: :drillsgt:

    Well who didn't see that coming? They have a store front every 2500 feet. A town of 60K people shouldn't need 14 mattress stores.

    For sensible consumers who want to try several before they buy one, remember that large brick and morter stores are expensive to run. And unless you want a minimum wage Walmartian who doesn't know which side goes up, you'll want a competent, knowledgeble, salesperson.
    And a smooth delivery and warranty.
    And there are always sales, and advertising, and expensive promotions.
    For 8 hours sleep per night, some people find it an important health and comfort decision.

    It’s basically what Subway is to fast food but for mattresses.

    I was going to say the same thing, almost word for word.
