Our bed broke more than 6 months ago. This past weekend we went to mattress wharehosue in Frederick and it was a highly unpleasant experience. The first salesman was kind enough until we wanted time to think about it..he then sent us to his closer who was scary looking and pushy. When we would not accept his terms he quickly literally showed us the door. It turns out that is the MO of that location. Tonight we went to dunkin donuts for dinner. We then hit the gas station to fill up the rental(ours is int he shop getting badly needed maintenance after 310k miles)…then to sleepy’s. After a prayer we went in. What a wonderful experience. The salesman there actually took the time to figure out our sleep issues and with the help of some impressive technology actually steered us to a bed we both liked instantly. I also made sure to get heather a tempurdic contour pillow. She was in bed heaven. I’m not going to detail the total expenditure in public but i can tell you we spent $300 less than we budgeted for. We spent nearly an hour at the crappy store. We were in and out with the bed bought in almost half that time tonight..:) If you are going to be buying a bed try the sleepys in Frederick, md on tues, thurs, and saturdays.
