5 Reasons Mattress Shopping Is Important NYC

matt article pic

1. I’ve owned a mattress store for 9 years and I can say I’ve never bought a mattress as a present for any family member or friend. I know to some of you it may sound like I’m cheap :). But from years of experience I know that mattress shopping is a personal decision for individuals . Each persons body has it’s own individual sleep and support needs based on the sleepers height, weight and genetics. Often people come in or call and tell me about how a friend has recommended them to get a certain bed, and quite often that person does not choose the recommendation from a friend. I do think it is ok to make a suggestion to a friend to try a certain mattress, but the best recommendation to make to a friend is to tell them to actually physically try mattresses, then take notes on the ones they like and try to funnel down a decision from there.

2. The Bed In The Box… It’s so easy to order online…But is it the right choice?

It’s true….Ordering a mattress online today is easy and convenient. That being said I would argue that you shouldn’t trade the value of convenience over the quality of your sleep. To save a few hours can cost you thousand of hours and dollars . What do I mean? Let’s be clear for starters the bed in the box concept is not like the Warby Parker glasses concept, where people were paying 600 dollars for glasses and now they can get the same quality for 100 dollars or less. Generally people are getting less in value dollar wise. Despite how many companies tout the physical value, we just don’t see it. We see an overpriced mattress that is low in materials with a high cost of marketing, advertising and PR packed into it. The bed in the box is not a new concept,it’s been around for decades and quite often you can find a mattress with the same materials in a physical store and pay a lot less for it. Now I’m not saying that everyone who orders a bed in the box mattress blindly online will not like it. But I argue that if I brought a mattress showroom to the door of the people that ordered a bed in the box and gave them an actual selection to choose from, that 99% would end up liking something more than the mattress they purchased and pay less. I further would like to say we all perform better when we actually get better sleep. We are generally, healthier, happier and more productive when we sleep well. Which is why it’s important to actually try the mattresses before you actually buy. We find a much higher percentage of people when they try a mattress in a calm non pressure environment will make a better mattress decision that will suit their sleeping needs.

3. If tomorrow you had to play in the NBA championship….

To perform at your optimum, would you go out to drink, would you stay up all night, or would you try to put yourself in the most relaxing environment? An environment that would give your body and mind the greatest chance to recover. I think most of us would choose a relaxing environment. Now not all of us are professional athletes:), but we are Professionals none the less in a very competitive world. Whether we are working in the job force, or a student, or supporting a family, we are all Pro’s. We try to make each day count, and to do that we have to eat right, we need to exercise, we need to be engaged in what we are doing and arguably most importantly we need our rest… We need to rest to be able to do all of this, to perform at our optimum. If you don’t sleep well chances are you’ll be counting down the hours left of the day rather than be engaging the moment. Our most important tool to get ahead is our mind, and keeping it sharp with proper rest is the foundation of being able to perform at our peak. And if you only have enough time to sleep for a few hours at least give yourself a chance to get the deepest sleep by selecting what your body signals is the right mattress for you.

4. Is there really one type of mattress that is the best for everyone?

I can’t think of one type of product that has to do with comfort that would be good for the masses. But there is such a thing of having a good selection to choose from. Many businesses today tout the one bed concept for one reason and one reason only. Because they can ship a mattress UPS….It’s easy, they don’t have to use a trucker or schedule an appt. They don’t need a showroom…But they do have to pay for advertising which again is easy. Then there is the right way….The right way is not always the easiest path, but it is the one that pays biggest long term dividends to the sleeper. Sometimes stores can be aggressive , it’s true some can be like that or one employees behavior can spoil it for the store. So I suggest in researching stores that are known for the best testing environment for being the least aggressive while being attentive at the same time. If you just want to test mattresses than promise yourself you wont buy that day and say firmly to an aggressive salesperson that you just started the process and you are not ready to order today. The Positive of going to stores is that they actually have a range of mattresses to try and that should outweigh any anxiety of mattress shopping physically.

5. To try a mattress before buying creates less waste in this


That’s right it creates less waste, because when you actually try a mattress in a store before buying, you are more likely to keep it, then return it and have it disposed of in some garbage

pit. In my own lease electricity is built into the rent, meaning we don’t get a separate electric bill. It means we could leave the lights on in our business even when we are not there and our rent will not go up. But we know regardless it creates waste by leaving them on and it’s all of our duties to not create more waste for all of us. A lil secret is that although people do like foam beds of all different firmnesses, 70 percent of shoppers that are given the choice of an all foam bed or a more traditional mattress or combos will not choose the all foam bed. In addition to creating more waste it is also driving up the cost of materials which raises costs for for the end consumer.

So try a mattress out before buying it, You’ll get better sleep, You’ll be sharper during the day and most of the time you’ll get a better value.

experience other than just visiting a store. (Developed by Craig’s Beds NYC )  We personally think that it is always best to  try out a mattress before purchasing especially for the sleepers who are very particular. That being said we certainly do understand the need of the customer that may not have the time to visit a store.

We studied the market and the growing demand

 We assessed the situation and developed our new mattress, The Craig’s Bed.   Similar to a company that we admire like  Apple, we watched, sat back and brought a product to market that we believe in.

No we did not invent the mattress that can be compressed into a box, that product has been around for years.  What we did was simply make the mattress better than the others. We packed the mattress with quality materials and designed the comfort feel to satisfy the greatest range of customers.   We studied mattress constructions and quizzed our customers, 1000′s of them to find out exactly what they like in a mattress. We proudly developed a mattress that can satisfy the demands that our customers were looking for in a quality mattress.

Who are the ideal users of this mattress? 

Sleepers who sleep on their side back or stomach. The Craig’s Bed possesses qualities that can support most stomach sleepers while giving just the right

amount of pressure relief for the most fickle side or back sleeper. 

You may be saying to yourself that you like a mattress that has a medium firm feel but is this still right for me? 

Ok, you should also like the feeling of having a mattress that does not have coils in it.  Twenty-five to Thirty percent of the customers today are buying all foam beds, that means that 75% are still buying more traditional mattresses. So make sure that you like the idea of having all foam. All foam mattresses are great for couples who wake up easily from their partner transferring motion to the other side of the mattress.  All foam mattresses virtually remove all motion transfer! Our bed actually has a supreme amount of bounce in it for this category and it is easy to move around in compared to other foam mattresses that the market has to offer.

Our latex  is 100% naturally made from rubber trees, this is the only part of the bed that is not sourced in the U.S.A. but only because rubber trees are not native to the U.S.A.

Next we added 1.5 inches  of 4lb density of the most advanced quick recovery  gel memory foams the world has to offer today. Our Gel memory foam is certipur us approved and deemed safe for babies, adults, dogs etc. :) The Gel memory foam is placed below our all 100% Natural Later latex layer.

Highly Recommend  Dr. Brick and Orlansky’s New York Dental Office

Since we get many new customers that just moved to NYC we figured that in addition to helping them get a new mattress that we could also recommend a great dental practice:)


No they are not paying us to post about them nor did they ask …. We are just trying to give you guys a little added value.

Why are we recommending them? Simply put, it is really hard to find a great dental practice in NYC. The New York dental office is a passionate sweet team that is all about taking care of their patients.

They even review the work that they have done in the past and if they see something they could of done better on they will let you know and correct it for free. Patients are totally in the dark when dentists are working on them and have to trust what the dentist says.  I highly highly doubt that any other dentist office in NYC would take the time to correct old work that they are not personally satisfied with or even admit to it …My experience is that most dental offices would just charge you and say nothing.

That’s just one example, my experience with them has been top notch and they really do care about their patients and doing an excellent job.

So if you need a new dentist or are dissatisfied with your current one,  give them a call and set up an appointment, you will not be dissapointed!

They can be reached at 245 east 63rd street Suite 110 NY NY 10065   ….212-838-6226
