Well today is the day that the site is finally at the stage where I can open it up and of course the forum along with it. I hope you find what you see valuable and of course this is the place to ask all your questions on your way to finding your perfect mattress. There is information here you won't find in a single place anywhere else ... and there is much much more to come. Enjoy
I see the site is still progressing! I am sorry I didn't sign up a little earlier..things were a little hectic at work. You really are a wealth of information and this place has a lot to offer for those serious about getting the RIGHT mattress.

Hi Phoenix, I just wanted to tell you how excited I am in learning that people like yourself are out there trying to inform the public about whats really going on in the mattress Biz! I have been in ths business over 30 years. Her at Newport Beddding we reall do make a great product at a fair price and still believe in fairness and honesty. Please give a look at our web site and feel free to call me anytime. So glad you are out there telling the truth!
It was great to talk with you today and I really appreciate all the information you shared with me both about your mattresses and the industry in general. It's always nice to talk with an "old timer" who has been around for a long time and knows what has happened (and sometimes hasn't happened) to the industry over the last 20 years or even more.
I'm looking forward to talking with you more
First I want to say that I am so thankful that I stumbled across this website!! I have been trying to research mattresses for about a month or so now and I belive this website is exactly what I have been looking for in actually helping me find a good mattress at a good price. Thank you for your hard work, time & effort that you have put into this, are putting into this and will continue to put into this! This site & forum is such a wonderful resource...from what I can tell and I haven't really gotten to dive into it all as there is so much here. Thank you again.
I am located in Paducah, KY. I am about 2 hours from Nashville, TN, Owensboro, KY, Bowling Green, KY, etc. I haven't searched too much yet on locals in these areas. Can you refer me to some or to a post where I can find them?
Thanks so much!
I'm glad you found us
There are a few posts which include manufacturers that are reasonably close to you in different directions and you have some good options within reasonable driving distance.
Post #18 here is centered on Evansville, IN.
Post #6 here is centered on Carbondale, IL (and includes the manufacturers that are closest to you)
Post #7 here is centered on Nashville and also includes some wholesale manufacturers in the area which usually have retail outlet finders on their site to find any local outlets that carry them.
It's a bit of "triangulation" but that covers them all
I just found the Mattress Underground Site. I appreciate the fact that you are trying to enlighten thee Public on what can be a very Blind Item. I run a small store. We carry off brands, from local companies, but quality products. A manufacturer called Sherwood they have been making mattresses across the U.S. for a hundred years. No one knows of them, but they have made the "House Brands" for many of the Big retailers. Older retailers would know them by their old name I.B.C.or International Bedding. But there are many smaller manufacturers who make great quality products all across the country.
While I don't mind that you mentioned the name of your store in your original post as an introduction (which I replied to as well) ... I removed the name of your store from this post because any advertising or self promotion is against the rules of the forum .
there are many smaller manufacturers who make great quality products all across the country.
As you may know from your reading here ... I would certainly agree with this.
PS: you resurrected a very old topic and since the forum is almost 4 years old ... it isn't quite so new any more
Just joined The Mattress Underground. Very glad for such a site to help sort out this important decision since we typically spend 1/3 of our lives on matresses and it greatly impacts the quality of the other 2/3 of our lives!
Looking forward to having what appears at first visit to be a very content-rich source of seemingly unbiased information all in one place.
Thanks Mattress Underground!
