Thanks for the update.
[quote]I just wanted to let everyone know that i found this store in Mississauga its right by the 401 and i think they were called sleep masters canada and they are just brilliant. i bought a queen medium firm mattress and boxspring for $750 and it is just perfect. At first i wondered if there was something up with it since its soo much cheaper than everywhere else but no its just that they are not ripping people off like some of these other places.
So yeah if you need a new mattress and you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars go to this place because their mattresses are actually top quality and they come with 15 years warranty. Well mind did anyway. [/quote]
Hopefully you were able to confirm the type and quality/durability of the materials inside the mattress you purchased (see this article) so that you can confirm the quality and durability of the materials and components in the mattress you purchased (words like “top quality” have little meaning without knowing the specifics of the mattress).
I would also be somewhat cautious about a retailer that is selling the same mattresses that are made by the same manufacturer for significantly less than anyone else because this would be somewhat of a red flag. As you probably know from your reading here a warranty will also have very little to nothing to do with the durability or useful life of a mattress or how long it will be before you may need to buy a new one.
As I also mentioned in my other reply … the price of a mattress is only one of many variables that can affect the “value” of a mattress purchase and the price may also have little to do with how well you sleep on a mattress (which is the most important part of value) but in most cities there are good quality/value mattresses that are available and would be well worth considering for both lower and higher budget ranges. A higher priced mattress certainly wouldn’t necessarily mean that a mattress was a “rip off”. In very general terms (and all else being equal), mattresses that contain higher quality or more specialized materials and components or mattresses that contain more padding (and of course larger sizes) will tend to cost more than mattresses that contain lower quality materials and components or that use polyfoam as the main padding material or that use less padding in the overall design (or are a smaller size).
Dreamstar is one of the smaller independent manufacturers in the Toronto area that make some good quality/value mattresses and a store that sells them and that is also transparent about the materials and components inside the mattresses they sell would certainly be worth including in any Toronto research.
It would be great if you could list the specs of the mattress you purchased on the forum (see this article) for the benefit of other forum members that may be in the same area.
Assuming that you are confident that your mattress is a good match for you in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP and that there are no lower quality materials or weak links in the mattress that could affect the durability or useful life of the mattress and that it also meets all the other parts of your personal value equation that are important to you …, congratulations on your new mattress
I’m looking forward to your comments and feedback once you’ve received it and have had the chance to sleep on it for a bit.
PS: Since you have no prior history on the forum and have made several posts about the same mattress and the same store … I would also make sure you read the rules of the forum because you also need to disclose whether you have any direct or indirect relationship with either Sleep Masters Canada or with Dreamstar.
