Tuft & Needle

Around the Phoenix area,  billboards are popping up that are a bit different .   The billboards state something like " "Mattress stores are greedy.  Learn the truth.   TN.com."  

 

I've seen these around town and wondered what business they represented.  So this time, I decided to check it out.  Checking their website answered my querry!  

 

Tuft & Needle is a relatively new company founded in 2012 by two young men who thought there was a better way to make mattresses.   Leaving their jobs in Palo Alto, California, they opened up shop in the warehouse district in Phoenix.  Their concept is entirely different from other mattress stores, thanks to their own disappointing experiences. 

 

Have you ever heard of a mattress you can take home and try out, returning it if you don't like it?   Me neither!  And their mattresses are very affordable.  They have low overhead, sales people are not on commission, and best of all everything is made in the US.  Employing American workers keeps more dollars in the US.  

 

These young men are modern day business pioneers who have created a product that is innovative, unique and drastically less than other mattress manufacturers.  They have no investors and are the number one mattress in the bedroom section of Amazon.   

 

And don't forget about the returned mattresses.  They donate them to charity.  Watch for copycats because if this genius business takes off, others will try to mimic the concept because it's just that good! 

Congrats guys on creating a business that makes so much sense that it's the KISS concept done right.

Jan interestingly enough there are in Los Angeles about a handful of Mattress Stores and their gimmick is 30 days Free Try Out and if you do not like it they will take it back... Seriously I find the odds of that happening is so small. So glad in AZ this is becoming the trend as well, Endre

The gimmick is worth it to them because it implies trust, I think anyway Endre Barath, Jr. !  The pair left Palo Alto to come to Phoenix so I wonder if your stores are copy cats or the original idea!  

This story is about 2 young entrepreneurs and their success, but yes mattresses aren't a new thing and as Endre points out, same gimmick.  Thanks for commening   Michelle Carr-Crowe-Selling Silicon Valley Homes in Top Schools San Jose, Cupertino, Saratoga, Palo Alto-Just Call 408-252-8900 !

Made in America is gaining so much in popularity  Debbie Gartner  and I bet you are more aware of that in your business, too.  Thanks for commenting!

This is timely.  My boyfriend has recently made a few comments about mattress stores being money makers.  I never thought about it, but he's right, and it's shown when I went to TN.com and read the costs to manufacture vs. retail.  Holy money under the mattress Batman.  It's like a 1000% mark-up.

Hi Jan - Interesting concept. We're not currently needing a mattress, but when we do, we'll check these guys out.

I didn't use Tuft & Needle mattress but many people say that this mattress is good. I read reviews on different websites and found that this mattress is fine. I found some other popular brands such as CasperPurpleTulo or Tuft & NeedleZinusOlee Sleep, etc are also reputed mattress brands.
