SELECTING A MATTRESS
the time comes to replace your mattress, the prospect of shopping for a new
mattress and foundation can seem daunting. A confusing array of choices await
both in-store and online. And since most consumers experience a 7-10 year lag
between mattress purchases, mattress shopping isn’t something that people do
every day. Frankly, many consumers dread buying a mattress.
to this shopper’s dread is a confusion factor sparked by the facts that
wider variety of mattresses are available today than ever before, and that
today’s mattresses often incorporate advanced materials and new technologies in
their construction. Factor in the complicating element of a wide range of price
points, and the mattress shopping process can seem almost overwhelming.
At Sleeptronic® we believe that mattress shoppers face a unique
challenge in selecting the right product for themselves, a product that must
also often please another person, in what is ultimately a highly subjective
purchase. We believe that consumers are best served by lying down, together,
on a mattress prior to making a purchase decision. That’s why our products are
sold predominantly through retail store fronts. However, it is undeniable that
the demands of time and distance, and changing consumer purchase preferences,
often dictate that a purchase will ultimately be made online. Today, for some
consumers, the online experience is the preferred shopping method. So, whether
shopping in a store or online, it’s important to be knowledgeable about the
options available. The information accessible through the links on this page is
designed to facilitate that process, impart some knowledge, and assist in
sorting through a confusing marketplace.
