Getting a good night’s sleep helps us to be our best selves the following day. So choosing the correct mattress to sleep on is an important decision for us all. Just as important is finding it for the right price. Have you had a retail sales person tell you recently that the mattress you like costs literally thousands of dollars?
There is a solution to this conundrum through a locally owned, boutique-style shop called Mattress By Appointment. Located at South Marietta Parkway, the Marietta store is owned and operated by Merissa Hylbak. Mattress By Appointment is part of a network of dealers that operate independently to give customers high-quality mattresses for great prices.
Now in business for almost two years, Hylbak opened her shop after searching for a new business opportunity that allowed for more family time. She describes Mattress By Appointment as an anti-retail shop with a boutique style.
“My prices are 50-80 percent less than retail stores,” she explains. “But I want to emphasize that this is not a typical discount store. I have something for everyone’s budget from economy to high-end. I am able to pass along the savings for several reasons, including no franchise fees and low overhead because I don’t pay for premium retail space. I also get bulk discounts from my manufacturer orders. And finally, I have no employees, it’s just me and my husband Travis who delivers the merchandise.”
The name, Mattress by Appointment, reflects how the business operates. As the only sales person, Hylbak sets up appointments to meet customers. “Through appointments, I can help customers choose the mattress that is right for them,” she says. “They have my undivided attention. And unlike ordering from the Internet, the customer can test the product in my showroom.”
Based on Google reviews, customers can’t say enough about their experience with Mattress By Appointment and the Hylbaks. Here are some reviews:
“…Mattress By Appointment was the easiest, no-hassle buying experience I’ve had, and the selection and prices are unbeatable.”
“…Merissa and her husband Travis are nice and helpful. You feel very comfortable trying out the best mattress that fits your needs!”
