Old-Fashioned, Honest Value


When you're in one industry for over 45 years, you learn a lot about the people, products and services in that industry. I was co-owner of the award-winning Better Bedding where I personally sold tens of thousands of mattresses to satisfied customers.

So what can a person with an inordinate amount of knowledge and experience in selling mattresses really do? The logical conclusion was to go back to do what I do best. Fortunately, it's also what I love to do! It's my passion. To me, there is nothing more personally rewarding than providing a customer with a great night's sleep.

For me, it's not really about selling a set of bedding. There is no better feeling in the world than helping someone find the right mattress, the mattress that will provide years of healthful, energizing sleep.

I guess you can call me a mattress "know it all". I know the ins and outs of every major brand like Beautyrest, I-Comfort, Sealy, Serta, Simmons, Tempur-pedic, Sleep Number, King Koil and Stearns and Foster. I understand the differences between all the latest technology in the industry including memory foam and others.

So, if you have a question, I will have the answer, or I will know where to find it. I invite you to give me a call directly, ask me your questions, I'll ask you some questions about your sleep habits, and together, we'll make our decision.

How can we do that? It's confidence that comes from experience. I guarantee you will be satisfied.

If you're concerned about prices, don't be. Connecticut Mattress offers superior products at dramatically reduced prices. We can do that because we understand the manufacturing and delivery processes and know how to get the best values.

So, that's the story of Connecticut Mattress and I guess it's my story, too.

I look forward to serving you.

Sleep well,

Tom Wholley
