APRIL 2021 – CUSTOMER OF THE MONTH
The Parks really needed a good night’s sleep (young family and
both working hard and sleeping on a mattress that just wasn’t doing it for them!).
This great couple were SO NICE to deal with and they spent some time
trying several beds as they both had individual needs – so great they did a
lot of testing and ended up with a pocket spring and memory foam
mattress – which I think is a perfect fit and sale price too. It was lovely
to see a couple enjoying a rare day off from the kids and embracing the day
and each other’s company and having fun. A real pleasure to serve. Enjoy the
champers in your barn conversion guys – sounds amazing.
