Please, Mattresses Next to Power Tools?

It’s nothing new.

Mattresses have been on shelves next to some strange items over the years. But what happens when mattresses are sold everywhere.

How do brands battle the commoditization of the category? Is it better to be visible in nearly every channel, or protect the brand and build value with consumers?

Dos Marcos digs in.

This North Carolina Mattress Retailer Brings the THUNDER!

During a live recording at Nationwide’s Primetime Event in New Orleans (August 2019), Dos Marcos had a roiling conversation with the owners of Sweet Dreams Mattress & Furniture, Katy and Greg Law.

Yes, Mattress Man himself made a cameo appearance! 

To start the show, Kinsley talked about the connection between lack of sleep and Alzheimer. Plus, test rats. How did two groups of rats respond to sleeping in clean versus dirty cages? Why does that tidbit matter to your selling process? 

Thanks to Katy and Greg Law, Kathryn Law Gaus, and of course the Mattress Man himself Andrew Schlesser! Say it with me, “WE’RE GONNA WIN!!!”

Should You Give a Sh#% About Brands?

During the last podcast with SSB’s Melanie Huet and Derek Miller, the subject of mattress brands came up.

Do brands matter? Should they matter to you? 

There are traditional brands, trade brands, brands that started online, and, of course, private label.

With many retailers adopting private label programs, should you care about carrying brands in your store?

Do consumers prefer certain mattress brands over others? Or, are people so confused they don’t care. 

In this episode, we dig deep into the brand conversation and talk about where the shift may happen and why.
