Adjustable Bed Base Renaissance

Beautyrest adjustable

Ahhh the Adjustable Bed Base, so misunderstood!

Here at Gardner’s we’ve seen an uptick in interest in what some people derogatorily refer to as “Hospital Beds”. Most commonly heard in the statement “I don’t need a hospital bed! I’m not old!” Well, truth be told, hospital beds and adjustable bed bases are related. In fact, there’s a reason hospitals use them- they aid in the healing process and can be the difference in getting a good night’s sleep and getting a great night’s sleep!

The reason we use the term “Renaissance” is not to be pretentious. It’s a valid description of the current market. There is a wide variety of options for people ranging from basic needs to a true lifestyle bed base, complete with sleep tracking technology and wireless remote apps!

Selecting the best Adjustable Base for you requires some thought. Consider options such as vibration massage, optional remote control apps for iPads or Android compatible phones, USB ports for easy device charging and more. For a list of what we have to offer, click here to see our adjustable base page.

Many major mattress manufacturers have their own options to purchase as a complete bed set, or adjustable bases can be purchased separately. If purchasing separately, make sure your current mattress is compatible- most newer beds are constructed to complement adjustable bases. In most cases, all memory foam or natural rubber foam beds, as well as pocket sprung mattresses will work.

We’re happy to help guide you through the selection process, or even just to answer a few questions.  Check out the link below to get our free Adjustable Guide or contact us here for more informationStop by either of our stores to learn more and we’ll give you a free demonstration.

Sometimes the best thing you can do is kick your feet up and experience one for yourself!

If you want it, we’ve got it!

The truth of the matter is…if you as a customer want a queen mattress ranging from $600 – $1000, the same price as the ones from those online companies that can be delivered to your front porch and where we pay the taxes, we have 13 models you can choose from.

Here is some more truth. The reason these online mattress companies are all the rage right now is for the very same reason they call me, my team and my vendors evil – marketing.

These online companies, 28 and counting, are very good story tellers…I mean marketers.

They all tell the story of how awful mattress store salespeople are – we’re trained to be the most high pressure, say and do anything to make a sale, close at all costs, wallet grabbing demons. In our store and in many of my fellow friends who are retailers, this couldn’t be further from the truth. But I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Next, they go on to highlight how we are evil profiteers enjoying 7-8 times mark up on our products. I can tell you right now this is just not true. And while yes we do make money, it is nowhere near 7 to 8 times our cost. And remember, none of these online companies are 501c3 charitable organizations either!

But, you know who does enjoy that high mark up? The very same companies telling you I’m an evil profiteer.

My business partner Jeff has an extensive background in the mattress industry and has done his research. From his research most of these companies have a cost of materials and labor of of about $200 – $300. Meaning that at least 300 – 500% of your purchase price is going into overheard, marketing, and the pockets of the Big Bankers on Wall Street’s pockets!

Bet you didn’t know that did you did you? And why would you, it’s convenient that as bombs are being lobbed at traditional mattress retailers by these online companies – some have taken on more than $60 million in money from Wall Street and the like! And we all know that Wall Street loves one thing and one thing only – profits at any cost!

Meanwhile back here in good ol’ Lancaster, PA, Jeff & I continue to operate a business that puts the customer first, our reviews speak for us. We employ 5 on our team and will likely add more people to our team this year, contributing to our community. Support our state with taxes (of all kinds) and are living the American Entrepreneur’s dream.

In our store, when shopping local, your wallet doesn’t have to be punished by high prices, nor does your back on those “one size fits all” mattresses.

We are happy to help you select the right mattress. In fact, we even have a blueprint for that! Plus, we offer a comfort guarantee!

So be sure to visit us…there is nothing you will sacrifice by investing your money with us to get a great night’s sleep that will help you wake up happy and pain free!

And when you come in on Mondays or Fridays you can shake my hand or Jeff’s, the owners, and you can look us in the eye. We stand behind everything we have to offer you and ensure your 100% satisfaction.

Try that with those online guys who are owned by Wall Street hidden behind a computer screen.

Ben Signature




PS – Right now we have a great 10” mattress made in America that is Certi-Pur Certified for $850 including tax and delivery to your front door. If $600 including tax and front door delivery fits your budget we have that too! Ask to see the Gold Bond Serene 8” and 10” in our stores.

The Internet’s favorite mattresses have come to Gardner’s Mattress & More, and I can’t even sell you one!

That’s right. The Internet’s favorite mattresses arrived at our store. Sadly, I can’t show them to you as every company has the legal right to dictate how their products are showcased and where they are displayed.

But you can check out our video review of the Casper mattress. So far they are the only ones who don’t seem to mind their product being reviewed by someone with no skin in the game. Did you know that most of the online bloggers and vloggers are compensated in some fashion by the mattress company they are reviewing? (Typically with free product and/or partner and referral codes)

So what gives?

Well, truth be told we wanted to see what all the hubbub was about. So, just like you can we bought a twin size mattress to check out.

See, these companies have taken some serious shots at traditional mattress retailers and while we certainly can agree with some of the statements that have been made – the mattress industry is full of deception and made up marketing words, what we can’t agree with are two main points they also attempt to make.

Point #1 – Mattress stores are evil profiteers swimming in money with a 7-8x mark up. Both Ben & Jeff (co-owners) of Gardner’s Mattress & More have a combined 30 years experience in the industry. Ben in retail, and Jeff in the manufacturing and wholesale side too, Jeff’s retail experience dates back to his partnership with Ben in Gardner’s Mattress & More.

Understand first that none of these online companies, are 501c3 non profits. Second, Casper specifically, has taken on over $55 million of big money from Wall Street since inception. Now I’ve never made money on Wall Street but we all know that Wall Street is not a very forgiving place when it comes to lackluster profits.

Further, from my experience (Jeff) I’ve found that the materials cost of most of these online mattresses range from $200 – $300 meaning that most all online companies enjoy a very healthy mark up too! Convenient how they are more than willing to assume what my store’s markup is, yet not walk you through that example isn’t it?!

Let me ask this, do you care about any of this? Likely Not.

(But hey, I (Jeff) am not one to just sit back when outright misrepresentations are said about how I choose to put food on my family’s table along with the 6 other families that look to Gardner’s for a steady paycheck.)

Which brings me to my next point and likely more valid point for you.

Point #2 – Do you really feel there is a one size fits all mattress for everyone? If so, show me your cookie cutter house, your same color, speed, and features car, your khaki pants and polo wardrobe and your same as everyone else hair style.

Not the same thing you say? I agree 100%! Here’s why.

We are all unique, we all have different shapes, different body sizes and most importantly different internal and external body structure and demands. Oh, and unique aches and pains too.

Show me a one size fits all mattress that 100 people love and I’ll show you 100 people who A) have been sleeping on the floor B) who have never had a quality mattress C) have such a poor quality mattress they can’t tell the difference D) all of the above.

Which brings me to my final point. Almost none of the reviews you read about on any of these online mattresses state the context and circumstance in which they were purchased.

No one states “I love my new mattress I can’t believe I was too cheap not to invest in a new one for 20 Years!” Just like no one says, “You know what, prior to sleeping on a futon I had leftover from college I thought sleep was just a formality, now it’s great!”

Truthfully anything that is new will feel great. And you know what maybe for some, not all, these online internet mattresses do feel great and for that we are grateful.

But you know what? If you really wanted, if we here at Gardner’s, felt that selling you a 10” piece of polyurethane foam much like the stuff found in your couch cushions and the seat of your car was the solution to sustained happy and pain free wake ups, we would sell it. It’s not. And for the record if we did, it would be about $499– Imagine that!

Want to know something else? We have a very nice selection of queen mattresses priced from $600 – $1000 (same price range as the online companies) and we can have them in your home very quickly too.

We even have a way for you to exchange it.

At the end of the day, we truly believe in the power of a good night’s sleep and all that it can do for you personally, for your family and for your community and that is why we decided to show these on our floor.

So come on in, check out what we have to offer, compare our mattresses to other options available to you. And if after that is done and you still want to buy one of these internet mattresses, be our guest we have free WIFI in the store!

No one will hold a gun to your head to buy anything, in fact it’s just not our style as you can see from our Google+ page. And if that wasn’t enough you can read about 100+ handwritten testimonials stating much of the same. 

Buy the online mattress, don’t buy it. At the end of the day we go to sleep just fine knowing we offer great sleep systems here at Gardner’s Mattress & More that truly transform our customer’s lives and deliver on the promise of a happy and pain free morning.

If that is what you are looking for, then we look forward to seeing you soon!

The Definitive Guide to Purchasing a Mattress Online

These online mattress companies seem to all the rage these days. As a customer you have been told the following story about traditional mattress stores by most every one of the online mattress company out there…

  • Don’t buy a mattress in a mattress store
  • Mattress stores are evil profiteers
  • Most all mattress store sales people are greasy, slimy and sleazy people. We consider ourselves exempt from that message.
  • All mattress stores are full of too many choices
  • The mattress industry comes up with made up names to confuse you.

Well, take one look at the online mattress company matrix that we put together available for you to download and you’ll see these online companies are close cousins of most all mattress stores. (right on this page, below this post)

We want to use this matrix as you embark on your mattress shopping journey, and it will tell you a very different story from what almost every online company wishes to tell…

  • We have the ONE perfect mattress for you – forget the fact there are 28 (and growing every week) companies available to purchase from! Add to the mix the top options from Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Meijer, Kmart, Wal-Mart, Target, Macy’s and you have 37 options. Care to take a guess how many mattresses the average mattress store has on display….about 35.
  • We have proprietary foam, springs or other materials unique only to us – pretty ironic if you ask me, that on one hand the marketing message is “made up names are deceptive” yet 60% of the online companies have a uniquely named, exclusive to them proprietary foam, spring or other material!

The truth is these online companies have exploded because of one major problem in the mattress industry, and this problem is not exclusive to the mattress industry, a lack of or poor customer service.

My stores, and my fellow retail friends, do not suffer these customer service woes, but I’ll let you be the judge of that by reading my store’s reviews.

Couple this negative sentiment to the benefits of technology that evolves faster and faster each and every day, and the mattress industry was ripe for an eye-opening evolutionary change.

Notice that I said evolutionary and not revolutionary. A revolution implies total upheaval and replacement.

We don’t see that coming, at least not to our store. We are squarely focused on an exceptional customer experience and seek to deliver an amazing and different experience at every turn from the type and amount of information we so freely share with our customers to the final step of delivering you your mattress in your home.

Let us help you understand the mattress buying process: you can get our mattress buying guide right here on our website. We offer this matrix to you, so that in the event you decide an online mattress is right for you we at least hope that we can help you select the right one for you.

Our number one goal is to help you wake up happy and pain free, if that is your goal in purchasing a new mattress we are here to help and eager to see you in our stores.

Introducing OrganicPedic from OMI

organic pedic logo


We’re very excited to announce that Gardner’s Mattress & More is now displaying OrganicPedic by OMI on our Plaza Boulevard showroom floor!

OrganicPedic mattresses are all-Organic Rubber mattresses and bedding, produced in the nation’s only large scale, 100% Organic Factory. What exactly does that mean? The level of detail that goes into the chemical free nature of these mattresses is amazing.

OMI, the company that produces OrganicPedic, maintains a smoke-free, fragrance-free, and cruelty-free environment. Anyone entering the factory must comply with strict standards- employees don’t smoke, wear perfumes or colognes, or use fabric softeners on their clothing. All mattresses are handmade and produced in Northern California by expertly trained artisans.

These mattresses are truly the purest sleep solution available, and it’s backed by a purity guarantee.

How far does OMI go to produce a “true” organic mattress? Here’s a list of certifications, as listed from OMI’s website:


The Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS)

OMI’s latex mattresses are certified to the Global Organic Latex Standard. Peterson Control Union, a globally recognized organic certifier, developed GOLS based on their years of experience certifying organic products in other industries, including foods and textiles. This certification ensures that all latex materials, finished product, and manufacturing processes adhere to strict and specific global organic standards. view vendor certificate

Certified Organic

Control Union Certifications certifies to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) – dedicated specifically to fiber and textile handling and production. The aim of the Standard is to define requirements that ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way up to labeling, in order to provide credible organic assurance to the end consumer. view vendor certificate

GREENGUARD® Tested and Certified

OMI’s OrganicPedic® mattresses meet the stringent criteria of the GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute (GEI) for low VOC emissions, and are eligible for LEED credits. In 2006, a OMI mattress was the first to be certified by GREENGAUARD® for low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions based on strict purity standards. We even pass GREENGUARD®’s most stringent requirements, theGold Certification Program, for products designed to be used for children and schools. We have continued to do so year after year with test values (BQL) below quantifiable levels.

American-Grown NOP-Certified Organic Cotton

Our USDA certified organic cotton batting is the highest-grade premium long-staple virgin cotton you can buy. It has been garnetted to our unique specifications and then sanitized using our exclusive non-chemical ozone process.

Made in the USA

Our organic mattresses are made in our Eco-Factory™, located in Northern California.

Natural Rubber Latex from Rubber Trees, Not Petroleum

Certified by Oeko-Tex to be free of harmful substances, the natural rubber in our mattress cores comes from sustainably harvested rubber-tree sap.

Flame Retardant

OrganicPedic® mattresses meet all federal and state, as well as Canadian, flammability requirements without the use of chemical fire retardants. Our mattresses were tested by the CPSC in May 2008 and again in 2014, and meet all flammability performance criteria under CPSC Statutes 1632 and 1633, as well as all new children’s regulations (16 CFR 1110, lot tracking, LEAD, and phthalates). view our flammability test

Our Eco-Factory™

In our organic-only manufacturing environment, cross-contamination from conventional products is never an issue. We simply have no harmful chemicals or synthetic raw materials on site. Our factory, located in Northern California, is truly unique – we developed the first and only large-scale Eco-Factory™ dedicated to all-organic manufacturing — in North America. Our Eco-Factory™ has its own ozone cleaning chamber that reduces naturally-occurring contaminants such as mold and mildew spores, yeasts, and bacteria that may have “hitchhiked” from the field or storage facility on raw materials. We believe there is no cleaner sewing facility in the mattress industry than our dedicated sewing room. Our Eco-Factory™ also provides a safe and healthful workplace for our employees.


How Do They Feel? 

While that is an impressive list, no matter what your mattress is made of, the most fundamental and important quality of the mattress is comfort and support. You can have the greenest, earthiest mattress ever produced by humans, but if it’s not supportive and comfortable, none of that matters. Stop by our Showroom and find out! OrganicPedic mattresses by OMI are available in a variety of sizes and firmness – from Firm to Super Plush – You’re sure to find the right feel and support!

We also carry a variety of OMI’s pillows (sooooo soft and comfy) and mattress toppers.

As always, we’ll be happy to show you around our growing organic and natural sleep sections and we’re excited to have these wonderful mattresses on display!

Is Your Mattress the Problem?

inside your mattress

What’s inside a mattress can be as harmful to your body as how badly it feels.

Take this quiz:

1. Do you have back pain when you wake up?

2. Neck pain? Stiffness or soreness?

3. Does it take you more than 30 minutes to fall asleep?

4. Do you experience restless sleep? Toss and turn at night?

If you answered “yes” two times or more, this may be the most important article you read all year.

Here’s why …

While you sleep, your immune system recovers and prepares for the day ahead. It replenishes every cell in your body. Low-quality, uncomfortable mattresses have been linked to discomfort and pain, which can prevent quality sleep.

People who struggle with sleep deprivation may suffer from irritability, depression, over-eating — even face a higher risk for Alzheimer’s. If your mattress is filled with chemical toxins, airborne allergens, or worse … your body is doing battle with those things rather than repairing itself.

You’re losing valuable energy each night instead of healing your body and revitalizing your mind. And all of that can wreak havoc on your health and well-being.

What’s In Your Mattress?

The following information may be disturbing to some. That’s because, the Environmental Protection Agency has identified at least 4 possibly dangerous chemicals commonly found in some synthetic mattresses — benzene, propane, naphthalene, and styrene — especially bedding made in China and overseas, where such governing agencies do not exist.

Also, consider these facts:

1) Typical mattresses made from artificial materials are known to emit potentially harmful gases in your bedroom, a phenomenon known as off-gassing

2) Laboratory researchers in the U.S. and Europe have identified up to 61 potentially harmful chemicals that off-gas from typical synthetic mattresses.

3) Exposure to these 61 chemicals has been associated with irritation of the skin, eyes, and digestive systems.

4) Additionally, the chemicals off-gassed by synthetic mattresses have been associated with headache, fatigue, depression, and even hearing loss.

5) Your skin, the most porous entry point into your body, has contact with a mattress for 8 hours every night, on average.
6) Children, who breathe faster than adults, are especially vulnerable to chemical exposure.

Every night, we lay down with minimal clothing for a seemingly good night’s sleep. But in reality, while lying on a conventional mattress, we are breathing in and absorbing through our skin a range of chemicals from synthetic materials — chemicals that can disrupt our sleep cycles and negatively impact our health.

Our mattresses emit gases from a toxic brew of components used to create them. From the polyurethane foam used in the padding to fire retardants and other additives, conventional mattresses continue to release chemicals in gaseous form long after they roll out of the factory.

Even after they have finished off-gassing, the chemically based construction of a conventional mattress provides an ideal environment for dust and dust mites, whose excrement is the #1 trigger for asthma attacks.

And get this. You know those white labels on a mattress that say, “Do Not Remove”? Incredibly, the law actually allows manufacturers to include potentially hazardous chemicals in your mattress without disclosing the fact on any label.

But if a true list of ingredients were available for conventional mattresses, it would likely include TDI (a common component), a known carcinogen, which can cause respiratory ailments such as bronchitis and asthma.

In addition, liver damage and breathing problems have been linked to vinyl chloride monomers, another common mattress material.

The list goes on. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that you would be given information about any of these chemicals from a manufacturer of conventional, synthetic mattresses.

The Natural Alternative

One of the most significant actions we can take to reduce our exposure to toxins and improve our overall health is to make changes to the one household item that is in direct contact with our bodies for one third of our lives — our mattresses.

“There are more ways than ever to sleep better and wake up pain free on a natural, organic mattress,” says Ben McClure, President of Gardner’s Mattress & More, in Lancaster, PA.

“Many people, like me, are in search of a natural sleep system. I was shocked to learn that toxic emissions from mattresses are a major source of daily pollution in our lives,” says McClure.

An all-natural, organic mattress is free of potentially harmful chemicals. Instead, natural materials like latex are used.

Latex is naturally hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, making it ideal for allergy sufferers. Also, latex is antimicrobial, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, which can cause asthma and respiratory distress. No synthetic materials are added to provide these benefits.

“All latex used in our natural mattresses is from the sap of a rubber tree, which can yield latex for up to 30 years. When a tree is done producing latex, it is taken down and turned into furniture. A new tree is then planted in its place, thus making latex a sustainable bedding component,” says McClure.

What’s the difference between an organic mattress and a conventional one? 

Organic mattresses are crafted from natural materials. Conventional mattresses are made mostly of artificial materials from nonrenewable sources, such as plastic and other petrochemicals,” says McClure.

Do organic mattresses come in different firmness?

“Yes, there are two main types of organic mattresses: Natural latex rubber and inner-spring. Both styles are available with varying firmness options to suit anyone’s sleep needs,” says McClure. 

What To Look For:

When researching natural, organic mattresses, look at these 3 areas:

1. Visit a store that carries the top certified natural and organic brands, including Savvy Rest, Prana Sleep, Pure Latex Bliss, and Vi-Spring. “Each of these manufacturers crafts bedding that is safe and sustainable,” says McClure.

2. Try out a new mattress for at least 15 minutes. Lie down in various positions, to simulate a night of sleep. And look for a store to offer you a clean pillow to test out. “We offer the only Dream Room where you can spend 15 minutes to 4 hours resting or even sleeping on a mattress. With 100% sanitary linens, blankets, and pillows so people can truly ‘test drive” any natural bedding,” says McClure.

3. Protect yourself by insisting on a strong guarantee. “I know people are tired of sleeping on a worn-out, chemically laden mattress. That’s why we give every customer 365 nights to sleep on it and return it for a refund it doesn’t deliver the sleep you want,” says McClure.

If you’re not sleeping well or you’re worried about toxic chemicals in your bedroom, consider this: The two things in life you spend the most time on are work and sleep. How much of your remaining hours on earth do you want to waste, losing sleep on an uncomfortable, chemically laden mattress? That’s a question that many are asking.

pillows. The All-Natural Latex Pillow, reserved and waiting for you, is filled with soft, 100% natural latex.

Fact: About 10% of the weight of a 2-year old pillow is actually dust mite droppings — excrement. With one big exception: Dust mites hate natural latex pillows, like the one waiting for you to pick up at Gardner’s (ask why when you visit — the answer will surprise you!)

FREE Gift #2: Natural Latex Mattress Guide ($9.95 value). Inside you’ll discover little-known facts about how men and women are sleeping better on Natural and Organic Latex Mattresses … waking up energized and more productive … and why ignoring problems with your current mattress can lead to depression, permanent health problems, and even damage family relationships.

Maximum Energy/Maximum Sleep with Dr. Martin Rogers, D.C.

We hosted another informational workshop at Gardners with a special guest: Dr. Martin Rogers, D.C. from the Family Chiropractic Wellness Center in Lancaster, PA.

Dr. Rogers spoke about spinal health as it pertains to daily energy levels and quality of sleep. Here’s the video from his workshop presentation, in full. Enjoy!

Dust Mites in HD

Dust Mites

Here’s a fun one to get your skin crawling: Dust Mites are anywhere we are… they feed on our discarded skin cells. Some people are allergic to their waste and those people can experience red, itchy and watery eyes, stuffy nose and sneezing.

The easiest way to protect yourself is by ensuring your mattress is protected: either with a mattress protector or mattress encasement. This will create a barrier between your mattress (the thing you sleep on for 6-8 hours a night) and the rest of the world we live in.
