I am looking around for the Simmons Beauty Rest Glover Park Plush Pillowtop in King. I recently found one in Sears for a reasonable price but wanted to ask around other places for their own price on the mattress.

A manager of another store told me that this specific mattress is being discontinued at the end of the month. Is this mattress being discontinued, and if so why?

I own one- don't get it! I bought mine from RTG on Thanksgiving week of 2013. The mattress leaves body impressions- does not bounce back to its original form. I'm not a big person- 5'5 at 124 lbs. After six months of use, I have developed shoulder and upper back pains! However, my lower back pain has vanished- that's a plus.

Most mattresses from the major "S" brands (Simmons, Sealy, Serta) have "model years" just like cars do. This is a Classic level Beautyrest that will be replaced with a similar model for the coming year. It will return with a new name and will possibly incorporate some small changes with the new model. Purchasing a closeout like this is usually a great value, as the retailer has to quickly make room for the new model year replacements when they arrive.

Hi Linda, The Glover Park Plush Pillow Top is exclusive to Sears. This particular mattress will only be feature at this retail store. You can find a product that is similar at another retailer but it will not find the exact composition of the Glover Park at Sears.

We also want this specific mattress in full size. Two months ago we decided on it, but my husband wanted to hold off for a few months. We were ready to buy yesterday, July 2. However, at the store they had all new mattresses, and we were told this particular model is discontinued, although there are still some in the warehouse. The salesman tried to convince us that one of the new models was not only a bit cheaper but was also better. However the Glover Park is the one given high marks by a well-known consumer product testing and reporting company, and it is the one we want. So we're headed back to the store tomorrow to order it while we still can. It looks like the price isn't going to drop any lower. If it does go lower after we buy, I'll be talking "price match" with them

Thanks for the review. I bought mine in matters firm. I'm filling out a warranty type service because of sagging and deep body indentations. Hope to get a response in 4 weeks. Our back is sore

It's years later, now, but I bought this one at Sears, and I regret it. In less than a year, it has a large dip in the middle! Adding a two inch topper didn't help much. Huge hassle when my boyfriend visits, we roll to the middle all night and the angle makes my back hurt. I am not that heavy, about 160 lbs. I think i paid close to $800 for this thing. It was too late to do anything about it after one year. My previous BeautyRest bought back in the mid 90's lasted a helluva lot longer than that!!!

I also have purchased this mattress. It is horrible. I made the first purchase almost 4 years ago. I grilled the salesman about making sure that I didn't purchase a mattress that sagged in the middle, that I didn't have to flip and he guaranteed this would not happen with this mattress. Within the first month I had called into the store I purchased from.Fast forward to today, the technician came out and said now the mattress is more than 1 1/2" deep and is defective! I contract Simmons after purchasing another mattress from another company to see if they could help. Simmons is only guaranteeing to a replacement mattress as what is stated in the warranty. I understand that but I tried to have Simmons work with the new store I purchased from. Not happy with Simmons nor the store I originally purchased from. The entire dealings with Simmons and the store has been a huge headache. I was just searching online and found this site and the reviews are upsetting. Obviously there is a problem with the Mattress and others have had headaches with this also. Very discouraged and disappointed.

Thank you to everyone who bought this brand and style and has posted his or her honest opinion based on actual usage. It is valuable information for the company when they design new mattresses and for customers like my husband and me who are shopping for a new mattress set. It's a large investment financially as well as amount of use over an extended period of time. I'm sorry you had such a negative experience, Marlene. If you had contacted Simmons directly before purchasing a different mattress from a different company, they might have exchanged the unsatisfactory mattress for a different one from their offerings. But you would have had to keep moving up the chain of command to reach someone with that authority. As a wise person said once, "Don't take no from someone who is not authorized to say yes."

Thank you for your response. Are you a representative from Simmons? While I appreciate your response I have and had called Simmons before my new purchase. I also tried to get up the chain as you say to Simmons. Unsuccessful. So much aggravation.

No, I'm just an ordinary shopper with a lot of years' experience. It sounds like you did everything right - contacting them before you finally bought a replacement elsewhere, trying to reach someone who would be customer-oriented and willing to help you. It's a cautionary warning for Simmons to review and improve their customer-service skills.
