The Sleep Country Mattress Store is a mattress retailer which has been operating in North America for roughly two decades. One of the unique things about this company is that it's owned by its employees.
They offer a wide variety of mattresses including many prominent brands. The chain has over 70 stores throughout the US and now also operates in Canada. Read on to learn more about what makes this chain unique, how they operate and the kinds of popular mattresses they sell.
The first store was founded in 1991 and since then the brand has spread throughout North America. It wasn't until 2010 however that they introduced their employee ownership model. With this new plan employees can now own stock in the company without having to actually pay for it. There are a few upsides to this kind of arrangement – for one thing, employees gain a direct benefit from making the company more profitable, so all the employees who own stock in the company are motivated to work extra hard. Every time you deal with an employee at one of their stores it's almost as if you were dealing with the boss. We all know what it's like to deal with retail employees who just don't really care about customers because they'll get paid the same wages no matter what. That's not the case when you visit an Sleep Country store.
The employee shareholder business model is obviously one thing that makes Sleep Country stand out from others in the mattress retailing market, but they have a few other interesting features beyond that. For one thing, they have a very impressive range of high quality mattresses from different brands. Some mattress sellers have exclusive deals with just a handful of manufacturers, which restricts their range quite a bit.
SC also beat out many other retailers when it comes to guarantees. Where other mattress retailers offer 30 or 60 day guarantees, SC offers an impressive 100 days on both comfort and price. In other words, if you find another retailer selling the same mattress cheaper within 100 days of buying from SC, they actually beat that price by 5%. Likewise, you have 100 days to decide whether the mattress you bought meets your comfort requirements.
On top of that SC also offers some fairly appealing finance options in case you can't afford to pay for the whole mattress up front and you're desperately in need of something new to lay your head on at night.
As mentioned above, Sleep Country offers a fairly wide range of mattresses with over 50 designs to choose from. These are fairly well-known brands too, such as Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Serta and Simmons. That gives you a pretty diverse range to choose from, whether you're interested in the comfort and support of memory foam or you want to splash out and get a 'luxury mattress.'
