Online or in-store: which do you prefer?

We spend a third of our lives in bed, so when investing in something as important as your sleep, it’s essential that you get a fantastic shopping experience so you can find the ideal bed.

In a technology-led age, however, where buying things online is quick, simple, and secure, it’s easy to see why so many people prefer making their purchases over the web. Nevertheless, thousands of our customers still enjoy visiting our stores across the country, so we work hard to make sure you always get the same great service no matter where you shop.

We don’t believe that our customers should pay different prices for what is, essentially, a matter of preference. That’s why, whether you’re a tech-savvy type who likes buying online or a showroom shopper who likes to try before they buy, you’ll always pay the lowest price for your mattress at Mattressman.

We’re proud of our price promise, it’s been around since the very beginning, and we know our customers appreciate knowing that no matter where they buy from us, they’re getting the very best deal.

Here are some of our favourite reasons for shopping online and in-store:

Shop till you drop

You can’t take booze into our stores, but there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying a glass of wine at home while you explore the great range of products on our site.

Secret shopping

If your partner keeps moaning about their old pillow and you want to wow them with a new one, or you’d like surprise your little one with a fab new bed that looks like a racing car, you can make your purchases online and not have to worry about any troublesome receipts giving the game away

Rating and reviews you can truly trust

The Mattressman website is pretty unique in that it’s probably one of the only ones about that features genuine staff endorsements. You can also read reviews from previous customers, allowing you to shop with total confidence. Why not start looking now?


A couple of years ago, the term ‘showrooming’ was added to the dictionary, describing ‘the practice of visiting a shop or shops in order to examine a product before buying it online at a lower price’. At Mattressman, we don’t have to worry about that, as you’re free to try before you buy in your local store and then buy from at home for exactly the same price! At Mattressman, we don’t believe in charging you more for shopping in-store, so we don’t!

Try before you buy in one of many Mattressman stores

One of the best advantages to buying a new mattress from one of our stores is getting to carry out the comfort test before you get it home. Our website does a great job of explaining the features of each mattress and describing their feel and tension, but nothing’s quite like climbing on and testing one out for yourself!

Professional advice from the best in the business

Our in-store sleep experts are all trained in the science of sleep and many of them have years of experience in the industry, so if you can’t tell a pocket sprung mattress from your memory foam, it’s good to know that they’re around to offer you some advice. And if you prefer to shop alone, don’t worry – our sleep experts are always on hand to help, they’re also happy to let you browse the showroom on your own.
