The average person spends roughly 20,440 hours a year sleeping. For the past 20 years, Jim Gardner of Gardner’s Bedrooms has been helping his customers choose their personal sleep surface, ensuring each one of those 20,400 hours are spent in maximum comfort and support. Despite Jim’s passion for improving others’ sleep, he made the difficult decision to retire this past March and close his store on Rohrerstown Rd. But don’t worry; Jim’s Gardner’s legacy will be carried on in a brand new location by his General Manager and 11 year employee, Ben McClure.
Voted the region’s “Favorite Place Buy Mattresses” in the Lancaster Newspaper’s 2010 Reader’s Choice Awards, Gardner’s has long upheld high standards for customer service. Now, with a new name, “Gardner’s Mattress & More” and a new, larger location at 830 Plaza Boulevard, Lancaster, Ben and his knowledgeable staff are continuing that tradition as Lancaster’s best resource for mattress buying advice.
“We consider ourselves consumer advocates in the mattress business,” said McClure. “Buying a mattress is making an investment in yourself, your sleep, and your health. The proper sleep surface can make a huge difference in relieving sleep issues such as lower back, muscle and joint pain, sleep apnea, acid reflux, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, and poor circulation.” Gardner’s Mattress & More will continue to match the right sleep surface to each customer based on their unique sleep needs.
Mattress buying can be an intimidating process, and Gardner’s understands that. In order to help their customers become better informed, they’ve published a book, “What’s Keeping You Up at Night?” A Guide to Overcoming 11 Common Mattress Buying Mistakes. For a free copy, stop by the new store, or visit LancasterSleepExperts.com.
The expanded showroom at 830 Plaza Blvd will feature new products, but the centerpiece remains Tempur-Pedic. Gardner’s has been Lancaster’s headquarters for Tempur-Pedic mattresses since 2001. Each Tempur-Pedic model is prominently on display and offers therapeutic support, unmatched durability and maximum comfort, including the best-selling Cloud Supreme and wonderfully comfortable Cloud Luxe.
Or, if you’re interested in the next generation of natural mattresses, Gardner’s proudly carries industry leader Natura. Covered in organic wool, cotton and bamboo, the Natura natural and sustainable, hypoallergenic latex mattresses are designed to provide buoyant comfort and support while regulating body temperature and reducing pressure points.
In addition to mattresses, Gardner’s also has a wide selection of power adjustable beds to customize your sleep positions, beautiful bedroom furniture (specializing in platform beds), and an expanded section of youth furniture. Or, try their brand-new, zero-gravity massage chairs. “We invite everyone to stop by for a free demonstration with our massage chairs,” McClure said. “Not only are they great for achy muscles, but also help with spinal decompression and improved circulation.”
With their new store, located behind Park City Mall, near Pier One Imports, Gardner’s is sure to have the right product to meet your sleep and comfort needs. “We have a great new location, and the same dedication to exceeding our customer’s exceptions,” said McClure. “Stop by and let us help you achieve your best sleep.”
