Mattress Shopping Guide

One challenge of buying a mattress is that we don’t do it very often. As a result, we tend not to have an established purchasing ‘routine’ for mattresses the way we do for so many other products. While there are likely dozens of mattress retailers within a relatively short drive of your house, you may only be able to think of a few off-hand, and chances are, there are only one or two (at most) from which you’ve ever purchased a mattress in the past. Meanwhile, you may find significant differences in the products and services available across these stores, not to mention the prices.

At GoodBed, we view the sea of mattress retail choices as an opportunity – the chance for you find a nearby store that will offer you the products and the services you want at the best possible price. To help you accomplish this, we offer a number of helpful resources. Assuming you already know something about what kind of mattress you want and are ready to begin shopping, here are some places we recommend as good starting points for your search:
