Original Mattress Factory Review
You’ve probably heard about Original mattress factory if you are performing a deep research about mattress because this is not usually among the first results you will see in a search engine. Their marketing efforts are focused on TV spots and radio ads. In fact, most people get interested in one of their mattresses because their heard about it at the radio.
Compared to other manufacturers that have been on the market for more than 100 years, this company can be considered a newbie as it opened its first factory in Ohio in June 1990. Still, it managed to spread around US quite quickly, now having 11 factories and more than 100 showrooms.
Where can you find it?
On the company’s official website you have a store locator, which shows both stores and factories. One big downside of this is the fact that you really don’t have the opportunity to read original mattress factory reviews on the exact mattress you plan to buy. One big advantage they have, compared to others mattress brands that are sold exclusively offline is that they have the prices on their website, for each mattress and size. Just by visiting the original factory shop you will find these prices.
All 6 Original mattress factory mattresses models are innerspring based, having various paddings and toppers. You can see how many coil units each mattress has and all the components and layers that are inside it. They might not have a wide range of mattresses but focusing on a certain subject can make you an expert in that field and that is what they claim to be.
My take on it
I personally think is confusing finding the right mattress for your needs from all the information overload you can find on their website. That means that you just have to hope that you find a salesman that knows his job and can help you buy the mattress that you need not the one that you like.
If you already bought one of their mattresses than you know that on the back of the receipt there’s a paragraph claiming that for certain fee (from what I’ve seen this can be around $60) you can have them “change the construction of your mattress”. Add to this shipping charges and you might spend well over $100 revamping a new mattress. However, if you happen to buy the worst mattress you ever slept on and there’s no way out, except for buying a new one, this may be the only way out. My advice is to make sure that they tell you exactly how much the procedure will cost you and what they add. You don’t want to pay extra for one inch foam layer.
“Set price includes mattress and box spring. We will sell mattresses and box springs separately, but please note that they are designed to work together. If you do not purchase a matching set, you may shorten the life and/or alter the comfort of your new mattress.”. Don’t ignore this warning because you will surely end up with a big hole in the middle of the mattress. Their mattresses can’t properly support your body weight without the box spring so a platform bed is out of the question. Do your research and make sure you know all the facts before getting your credit card out.
