Mattress Express buys nearly all of their mattresses directly from the factory that manufactures them. Buying factory direct eliminates a middleman and a middleman mark up. It also allows us to negotiate directly with the manufacturer to buy for less and sell for less! We also, in many cases, participate in the design, have input into the materials used and propose design ideas of new mattresses. This allows us to incorporate what our customers tell us they want in a new mattress! Mattresses come to our stores every week by the truckload directly from the factory.
