(On the theory that people only tend to post about a company when it’s done something bad, I figured it’s worth posting a review of a company that just did something good)
If you’re looking for mattresses, beds, or futons in the peninsula area, I’d recommend Mancini’s Sleep World in Los Altos. I went there in search of a new mattress to replace my dying one; the manager showed me around, explained the differences between the various mattresses and encouraged me to try a range, and helped me narrow down the decision. He didn’t try to upsell me, but instead showed what he considered the best of his goods for my needs in several price ranges. He offered a good price, we set a delivery time (very flexible – they deliver on weekends too, which is nice) and at the appointed time the delivery showed up promptly, got everything in place, and was off.
Overall, I left this whole deal feeling like I’d just paid a fair price for good value, which isn’t too common in the household durable goods business. So if any of you are looking for this sort of thing, I’d definitely recommend going here.
