Buying a Mattress ‘IRL’ & Why the Right Mattress Store Makes a Difference

Where you buy your mattress matters. You spend every night sleeping on it; it influences your sleep, your health and how you feel each day. But nowadays you can even buy mattresses online or second-hand. But, for such an important purchase, it is important to have someone educated on the selection guide you through the process. It is essential to not only know what material best suits your needs, but where your mattress comes from and how long it will last. And, buying one ‘IRL’ (in real life) is the way to do it! That’s where your mattress store comes in.

At the Mattress Superstore, we don’t just sell mattresses. We help each of our customers find the perfect mattress to fit their unique needs for a more restful night’s sleep. We are confident in the high quality of the mattresses we sell, giving you a 60-night sleep trial to test your purchase. As the new mattress store for Mankato, we’d like to tell you a little more about what makes our mattress store unique and why it’s the best way to buy a mattress.

One of the main benefits of buying a mattress in a store and not online is that you get to try out the mattress first. It’s important to check for proper support and comfort in a mattress, and you just can’t do that online. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, an actual physical mattress store will have salespeople to help walk you through the selection process and help you choose the right mattress for your needs. You may have been sleeping on an extra firm mattress for years when a memory foam would actually suit your needs best The salespeople at our mattress store can help you with that.
Another benefit of buying in store is there is a physical place you can go in and get help with customer service if you need to. Try getting help from an online store. You could be on hold for hours and if you do decide you want to return your mattress, how do you ship it?

There are so many reasons to stop in to our mattress store and try out as many mattresses as you’d like! We are here to help you make the right decision for you. We value our customers and want to offer the best quality mattresses at reasonable prices. And, we carry a wide variety of mattress brands including two-sided mattresses!

Come into our showroom and learn more about each of these and find out which one will suit you the best! Are you ready to come to our mattress store in Mankato? Call the Mattress Superstore at (507) 385-1565 or Contact Us to visit the showroom nearest you!

Myth #1: A Firm Mattress is Always the Best for Your Back

Although firm mattresses are best for helping some people’s back problems, that isn’t necessarily the case for everyone. You need a mattress that conforms to your personal sleeping positions while supporting all areas of your body. Whether you choose a soft, medium firm or firm mattress; you need to find the one that best offers support and conformability for you.

Myth #2: Replace Your Mattress Every 8 Years

Although it is recommended to replace your mattress every seven to ten years, every mattress is different. The wear on your mattress depends on its quality, how you sleep on it and how often it is rotated. You’ll know when it’s time to replace your mattress – so don’t always rely on the 8 year rule. The experts at our mattress store can tell you even more!

Myth #3: A Mattress Should Be Perfect from the Moment You Lay Down on It

Most of the time, you will need at least a month to adjust to a new mattress. Muscles and joints have a memory of how to find the most comfortable spot. And, when you get a new mattress you must allow your body to adjust to this new surface. Stop by our mattress store and we can help you choose the mattress that makes this transition as smooth as possible.

Myth #4: Never Remove the Law Tag on Your Mattress

This one is our favorite! The truth is once you’ve bought the mattress and it’s in your home, you can do whatever you want with it. But if you ever need to file a warranty claim, it needs to be attached to the mattress because it contains critical information that will help the manufacturer process your claim.

Spring is in the Air: But, Does Your Mattress Still Give You That Spring in Your Step?

With spring comes spring cleaning. And, while you’re taking a look at and cleaning up the rest of your home, why not take a moment to consider whether or not your old mattress is still working for you. At The Mattress Superstore, we are experts in all things mattresses and have some advice to help you determine whether or not your old mattress deserves to go out with the dust bunnies. And, if you realize you don’t love your old mattress anymore, we’ve also got some things to keep in mind when buying a new mattress for your Woodbury home.

Are you tossing and turning?

If you’re simply not sleeping as well as you used to, this may be a sign you could use a new mattress. As a mattress ages and begins to wear out, it starts to sag in the middle. This wear and tear can cause your mattress to lose the firmness it once had. So rather than sleeping on a flat, comfortable surface, you end up sleeping on one that’s awkwardly curved in the middle.

Is your mattress ‘getting up there’?

Mattresses do have an expiration date. Although, it may not be labeled right on the tag, the rule of thumb is to replace your mattress every eight years or so. Over the span of eight years (about 2,290 nights), your comfortable bed will begin to wear out and become lumpy or even saggy. And, since we spend about a third of our lifetime in bed, over time, a mattress will start to collect dead skin cells, body oils and dust mites. Dust mite allergies can cause sneezing, itchiness, runny nose, watery eyes, coughing, and sinus pressure.

The best remedy? Replace your old mattress with a new one.

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

How you get a good night’s sleep depends on many different factors. You’ve got to start with the basics; your mattress. It is the building block to a successful slumber! A mattress needs to support your body in a neutral position; one in which your spine has a nice curvature and your heels, buttocks, shoulders and head are in proper alignment. If it’s too firm, it will push on these pressure points and if it’s too soft, it won’t properly support these pressure points. Do you always feel hot at night? Consider a cool gel memory foam option.

Know Your Mattress

One mattress brand isn’t necessarily better than another. But, different brands offer different benefits. If you wake up in the morning and have lower back pain and need to stretch for several minutes, chances are you’re sleeping on an inappropriate mattress for you. There are many different kinds of mattresses to choose from including:

  • Innerspring
  • Tempurpedic
  • Memory foam
  • Latex
  • Two-sided
  • Adjustable electric beds
  • And more!

Not sure which one to choose? Try each one out in our store and a mattress professional can help you find the right one for you.

Go Ahead, Give It a Test Drive!

When you are looking for a new mattress, experts suggest lying down on each mattress you’re considering, right in the store. Lay down on each mattress in the position in which you normally sleep. The more you can replicate the way you sleep at home, the better your chances on picking the right mattress for you.
