Founder’s Message – Mattress Mattress 25th Anniversary

Whether you’ve bought from us, simply came in for a Beducation®, work for us, are a mattress or media supplier, I’ve got a simple message to share with you. It’s our 25th year in business, and I’d like to say “Thank you!” Our business is thriving, and it wouldn’t be possible without you. I’d also like to thank those that may visit us after visiting this site. Come get your Beducation®! No matter where you buy a new mattress, armed with a Beducation you’ll make a better buying decision.

This milestone provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our past, and to peek at our future.

Mattress Mattress was incorporated in Red Deer, Alberta on March 31, 1994, and our first store opened in June.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years. Who would have predicted that we’d grow to an 18 store chain with over 60 employees, of which more than half are shareholders in one or more of our affiliated companies? We’ve faced some uncertain economic times, and we prevailed. Some will say our survival was because of hard work. I agree that hard work contributed, but I believe it’s largely attributed to our Beducation® concept.

Let me start by telling you a bit about today’s mattresses. They’re not all the same, and do not sleep the same. Some sleep hot. Some provide better spinal support than others. Some reduce or eliminate back pain. Some reduce tossing and turning, and therefore sleep fragmentation. And some take pressure off pressure points such as shoulders, ribs, elbows, hips and knees, thereby reducing pain that can keep you awake at night.

Before shopping for a new mattress, most consumers today spend countless hours doing mattress research online. All this can be confusing. In the end they buy the most expensive mattress they can afford, hoping it will provide them with a good night’s sleep.

It doesn’t have to be that way. We have a saying at Mattress Mattress®.

We know mattresses … and you will too!

For those that have never experienced a Beducation®, it’s a time saving comprehensive summary of today’s technological advances in mattress materials and construction, along with the benefits consumers can expect from these. And while you’re getting a Beducation®, you get to test drive the latest in mattress technology, to see if it suits your needs.

We constantly work with our associates to make sure they know as much as possible about mattresses, so that even if we don’t have what you need, they can hopefully send you to someone that has a solution.

We also have another saying that speaks of how good our Beducation® process is.

Armed with a Beducation® you’ll make a better buying decision.

How do we know that you’ll make a better decision with a Beducation®? We sell over 25,000 mattresses a year, and we have very few comfort issues. We take selling you the right mattress seriously. We give you the facts, and because we all have different needs, we let you determine which mattress will best fill your needs when it comes to a better night’s sleep.

Our commitment to a pressure free shopping experience, on hand inventory, trusted brand name mattresses, great prices, to providing you with a Beducation®, to making rest and wellness a priority, and to putting you first, are all part of our mission.

We’re also proud to be 100% Canadian owned and operated.

But the world is changing at an unprecedented speed, and we can’t afford to rest on our laurels. Our work is not over. We need to plan for the future. To innovate and lead with technology. To grow our business by raising the bar.

These are all challenging priorities, but our passion for delivering sleep solutions for a modern world to you, will continue to drive our journey each and every day.

We look forward to, and thank you for your support.
