Why it’s important to shop local

Shop local

For 30 years, The Original Mattress Factory has championed the power of shopping local. Our local approach to manufacturing and retail means that every mattress sold in your community is also hand built in your community.

Now more than ever, local and small businesses need your support. Local restaurants, retailers, and manufacturers are the bedrock of any community, and we would like to encourage you to choose local whenever you can. So, we’re sharing why we’ve chosen a local approach to business.

Know where your products come from

Where a product is manufactured can have a big impact on its quality, safety, and price. That’s especially true when it comes to mattresses. That mattress you found online may feature foams made overseas where they do not adhere to the same quality and safety standards you’ll find here in the U.S. When you’re investing in such an important product, you want to be sure you can trust in how it was manufactured.

At The Original Mattress Factory, we source our materials from the U.S. whenever possible. We have long-term partnerships with our suppliers, and we can depend on the quality of the component they provide as well as their safety standards. And our manufacturing process is an open book. All of our factories are open to the public, so you can stop by to see exactly how we build our mattresses and box springs.

Know where your money is going

When you buy local, you know where your money is going and who it helps support. The owners and employees are a part of your community. It’s not just an investment into their business, it’s an investment into your hometown.

The Original Mattress Factory is employee owned. Our employees on the sales floor, in the factory, and on our delivery teams are all owners — and they’re your neighbors. When you purchase from OMF, you know that your dollar is staying right here in your community.

Why local is at the heart of what we do

We’re not just building mattresses for anyone. We’re building them for our neighbors. We’ve taken special care in designing our mattresses and box springs to provide the best-quality support, durability, and comfort. And we take that same special care throughout the sales and delivery processes.

Our local approach also provides additional factory-direct value. When we manufacture locally, we are able to cut down on our costs and pass those savings directly to you. That means you can get a better-quality mattress at a better price.
