help finding a store in my area

Hi Sdot,

The first place to start your research is post #1 here which has the basic information, steps, and guidelines that will help you make the best choices … and hopefully help you avoid the worst ones such as the major brands such as Simmons that don’t disclose the quality of the materials in their mattresses or use lower quality materials that will soften and break down much too quickly.

You are certainly right that there is little in the way of good quality/value choices in your area. I did a fairly extensive search around you and there are a few “possibilities” but you will need to do some further phone research along the lines of this article to make sure they are somewhat knowledgeable about mattress materials and most importantly will disclose the quality of the materials in their mattresses (or call the factory to find out if they don’t have the information available). without this information it’s not possible to make an informed buying decision or make meaningful comparisons with other mattresses.

The “possibilities” along with the brands I would consider at each one on a “mattress by mattress” basis (and only if they can provide you with the quality specs) include … Lewisburg, WV. Paramount (HD series) Beckley, WV. White Dove

There are a few better choices if you are willing to drive some distance …

Charleston, WV area: Huntington, WV. Factory direct manufacturer that makes their own springs and good quality products.

Mattresses : Pugh Furniture Warehouse Showrooms Charleston, WV. Pure Latex Bliss, Imperial Charleston, WV. Paramount (HD)

A few other lists that would also be a longer drive …

Roanoke/Christiansburg area: Post #5 here

Charlottesville/Lynchburg area: Post #3 here

Outside of the few local options … most of your better choices or possibilities would involve a longer drive so depending on how far you are willing to travel it may also be worth considering an online purchase.
