We had an opportunity to buy a very high-end Stearns & Foster Latex mattress which had a retail price of $4250 for only $1400. We were able to get this price because the mattress was either an overstock, closeout, last year's model, freight rub, or comfort trial. We were so excited to get a very high-end mattress for an affordable price.

The morning after our first night’s sleep on our new mattress we noticed some dramatic changes. We woke up in the same position, did not turn, did not toss, and did not wake up at all during the night. The morning back pain that Steve had become accustomed to was gone. The mattress made a huge difference in our night’s rest.

We later bought a Sealy Optimum mattress with OptiCool gel memory foam for Mari’s 89-year-old mother. The mattress contoured to her body. After a few nights’ sleep, she noticed her shoulders did not hurt in the morning.

We decided to open a mattress store and give people the same opportunity we had by offering great products at a great price. At Sweet Dreams Mattress Center, we keep our overhead low and put a focus on volume which allows us to keep our prices low.

Due to manufacturers’ requirements, as we are selling these mattresses outside of the normal retail chain and below the manufacturers’ minimum sale price, our mattresses are sold "AS-IS" and without the manufacturers’ respective warranty. We, however, at Sweet Dreams Mattress Center stand behind our product and guarantee the manufacturing of each of our mattresses. The mattress may have a mark or a mis-stitch, but nothing that would ever compromise the integrity or manufacturing of the mattress.

Come visit us at Sweet Dreams Mattress Center. We know our customer referral and testimonials are the secret to creating a large referral base. We are dedicated to giving our customers a great experience.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mari Moreland Rippey and Steve Rippey
