A good mattress can be the difference between a good night’s sleep that will result in a productive day or suffering from a terrible back pain. Buying a mattress is a serious investment, but to make it a little bit easier, we narrowed the choice down to one mattress store where you ultimately want to shop.
Global Mattress is a vertically integrated, direct-to-consumer brand that offers high-quality mattresses starting at $259 by eliminating the middleman. The company designs and manufactures its mattresses at a facility it owns in Puerto Rico then sells them in its stores throughout the island, Florida and online. Global Mattress also takes care of the product delivery, which is always free, and set up.
The Lee Vista warehouse, located at 6835 South Conway Rd. #400, allows the buyer to buy ultra-premium mattresses at fabric-direct prices. In the meantime, their Lake Mary location pioneers a hybrid shopping experience that blends the convenience of e-shopping with the benefits of in-store shopping.
Upon arrival, clients are greeted and are free to roam around to try out different mattresses without a salesperson tailing them. They may directly place an order on a tablet provided at the store, without ever going through an employee. Should a client prefer to interact with a salesperson and complete a purchase with assistance, he or she can opt to do so as well. At the same time, Global Mattress has a modern e-commerce platform that enables an easy shopping experience from the comfort of home.
“We are a different kind of mattress company,” said Javier Tejeda, General Operation Director of Global Mattress. “Ours truly is a stress-free experience in which the customer has full control of how he or she shops. A mattress is an investment that shouldn’t be made impulsively or under pressure. We provide a calm, beautiful and modern environment in our stores for customers to make the most informed decision devoid of external pressures, or they can choose to shop from home.”
Global Mattresses’ orthopedic mattresses come in different styles including reversible, plush, memory gel, body comfort and adjustable beds. They relieve lower back pain by allowing the user to elevate their legs. All mattresses come with a 100-night, hassle-free warranty that allows for return or exchange of the merchandise if the customer isn’t fully satisfied.
Global Mattress also makes reversible mattresses, a feature that extends the life of your mattress from eight years to 10 years.
“Choosing a mattress that best suits your body needs is a very important process that will impact the quality of your sleep, and your health, for years,” Tejeda said. “We strive to make that process easier by removing the hurdles people find in more traditional stores like pressure to buy and high prices.”
Founded in 1987 in Puerto Rico, Global Mattress evolved from a single, family-owned store to a company with manufacturing facilities and 14 showrooms in the island. The Lake Mary store and Lee Vista warehouse will be followed by three others this year, scheduled to open in Kissimmee, Orlando and Lake Nona. Two other showrooms are in the planning stages for 2019.
