Toss…Turn…Toss…Turn! How many of us have had such sleepless nights? In my never-ending quest to achieve physical fitness, I now wear a Fitbit all day long, including to bed at night. It not only counts my steps taken and calories burned during the course of a day, it now records my hours and quality of sleep. And what does it say about that quality of sleep? In my case, the word is restless!
I turn to the internet in times of insomnia. I tend to Google any and every topic that comes to my mind. On one of those restless nights, I searched for words of inspiration about that amazing state of mind that we call “sleep.” My search brought me to many places; some with a touch of poetic inspiration, like the words of English dramatist, Thomas Dekker (1572-1632), who wrote, “Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” But the search also brought me to some other words of just good old common sense: “Maybe it’s your mattress!”
So I visited www.MarcoIslandMattress.com, the site of the Marco Island Mattress Company. Just opened in January, the business is the only mattress store on Marco Island. A number of things immediately stood out about this local company.
Marco Island Mattress Company guarantees free on-time delivery for all orders, offering a $100 refund if your order is not delivered within the specified three hour delivery window.
The company offers a lowest price guarantee. In their words, if you find the same mattress for a lower price within 60 days of your purchase, they will refund you 110% of the price difference.
Marco Island Mattress Company offers professional selection assistance. Because of the company’s experience and dedication to taking the time to help each customer choose the mattress that is right for them, an impressive 98% of their customers are more than satisfied with their selection the first time.
They offer an unlimited comfort exchange. If you buy a mattress from them and you are not satisfied with your level of comfort, they will exchange it for another until you are satisfied, no matter how many times it takes.
All this being said, I knew that I had to meet the people behind the Marco Island Mattress Company. Once I managed to get some sleep, I drove over to 713 Bald Eagle Drive in the Pelican Plaza on Marco Island. There I was greeted by the co-owners, Gregory and Richard Sumer, a father-son team. Originally from New Jersey, the Sumers moved to Southwest Florida about a year ago. The family has been in the furniture and mattress business since 1948, with Richard being the third generation in the family enterprise. The men understand the value of customer service. Gregory Sumer said, “We aim to be the most customer-friendly store in this business.” The business carries an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Because of their experience in the business, the Sumers also understand the value of carrying high quality mattresses, from well-known and respected brands like Serta and Dunlopillo. There are a variety of beds and mattresses on display in their immaculate showroom, inviting customers into a world of comfort and relaxation.
Gregory and Richard invite you to stop by and meet them. They are open from 10 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 PM on Sunday. Give them a call at 239-970-4095 or send an email to MarcoIslandMattress@gmail.com. Sweet dreams!
