Unless you’re the super-fan willing to shell out serious cash for a mattress shaped like your alma mater’s logo, your mattress likely has 4 corners. In fact, it could have a lot more than that, depending on how mathematical a thinker you are. Since we’re North and South Carolina’s go-to discount mattress dealers, we understand that it’s tempting to get creative and save a buck. These are four corners you should never cut when shopping for a new mattress.


There are plenty of times in life when less is more. Mattress, shopping, though, isn’t one of them. You might need less softness, less support, fewer springs, or fewer synthetic flame retardants. But it’s very unlikely that you actually need less mattress. If you’ve ever shared a full-size mattress with someone else, you won’t be surprised to learn that “full” is actually the minimum adequate size for one adult. Countless Americans are getting less sleep, of lower quality, and with more aches and pains, just because their beds aren’t big enough. It’s true that mattresses are sized by price, and that you could – in theory – save up front by buying a smaller size. What you save in cash, you’ll pay for in sleepless nights. Going smaller should be a matter of necessity, not a way to save a few hundred bucks.

Cutting out the middleman.

Here’s a popular pitch that you can’t avoid hearing, whether you’re in the market for a new mattress or not. Some stores claim that you can get a better mattress at a lower price by “cutting out the middleman.” While it’s true that these companies make and sell mattresses without third-party dealers, there’s a problem with their approach. Mattress stores that only sell their own models are lacking in diversity. They only carry a few products, so they can only match you with the best fit from a few generalized options. While there’s compromise in every decision, it’s important that you get the features you need to get a good night’s sleep. At A Goodnight Sleepstore, we work the old-fashioned way. We source only the mattresses that meet our own quality standards. Then we find the absolute best match for your needs from a wide array of trusted brands and product lines. You get what you need, along with the guaranteed lowest price and your best night’s sleep.

Skipping the shopping.

Mail order mattresses are the latest craze, and they’re getting a lot of press. We get it. They’ve disrupted the market in a big way, and there are definitely some benefits to their model. If you have any unique needs, however, you’re going to be out of luck. The big perk is actually the biggest drawback. You don’t have to choose at all because there are no choices to be made. If you don’t know why you’re not sleeping well, these companies can’t help you. So if you’ve tried the one-size-fits-all approach to bedding and found that it didn’t fit you, come visit A Goodnight Sleepstore. Our sleep experts have expansive knowledge of sleep and how to improve it. We’ll help you find your best night’s sleep – guaranteed.

Holding onto the past.

Who’s not guilty of holding on to their mattresses too long? It’s possible that mattress-store employees are the only ones. That’s because we know that an old mattress can negatively impact your quality of life more than just about any other household item. We spend 1/3 of our lives in bed, and we’ll each only have 6 or 7 mattresses in a lifetime. Over the course of decades, you’ll benefit far more from always having a supportive mattress than from the amount you’d save by avoiding the purchase of one mattress. For us it’s a no-brainer – sleeping on a much-used mattress – your own or a hand-me-down – just isn’t worth it.
