Here are a few options in or near Jacksonville besides the chain stores you probably already know about. Some of these look pretty good and a couple I talked with when I was looking for my own mattress.
http://www.roomstogo.com/jacksonville-furniture-stores/ Retailer. Mainly "S" brands but carries CMG (Carolina mattress guild) and has the embody series for "testing".
http://www.bodyrestmattress.com/page/consumers Manufacturer. Has latex and memory foam combination options
http://www.colemanmattressco.com/ Manufacturer. Has latex and memory foam options
http://www.demattressinc.com/307169.html Manufacturer. 9" latex is about $1500 (queen) and will custom manufacture. Makes mattresses for private label as well. Seemed like good people when I talked with them.
http://www.floridabeddingcorp.com/products.asp Manufacturer. Looks like lower end and didn't see any memory foam or latex.
http://foxmattress.com/ Manufacturer. Has latex and memory foam and will custom build. In Daytona Beach but may be well worth calling. Seemed to have good value when I talked with them
http://www.hmcwest.com/Designer/index.html Manufacturer. Specializes in marine mattresses but may build home mattresses as well. Latex options.
http://www.factorymattressoutlet.net/location-factory-mattress.html Looks like a retail outlet but I don't know what they offer or even what factory they are "direct" for.
http://www.originalmattress.com/locations Regional Manufacturer. In Daytona Beach but has good value and a wide range
I think I screwed up. These are all close to Jacksonville. Later tonight I'll put some links together for St. Petersburg. Sorry, don't know what I was thinking.
PS: Maybe someone in Jacksonville is also looking for a mattress lol
OK, here's a few more that are either in St. Petersburg or reasonably close.
http://www.originalmattress.com/locations Regional manufacturer. I'm including this even though the closest is Kimsimmee because they have great value.
http://www.restonicflorida.com/products.htm National manufacturer. I'm including this one because they build all the Restonic in FL and they are one of the "better" national brands in some areas (they are different in different areas). If you come across Restonic anywhere this will give you a way to check what's in it.
http://www.pittsburghmattressfactory.com/ Local manufacturer in Ellenton
http://www.panachemattress.com/about.html They are a specialty manufacturer usually available through retail outlets. They have a latex/poly and memory foam line. Good for testing out what construction feels good but are often priced more than I would pay. They would probably give you the names of retail outlets that carry them near you
http://www.commercialbedding.com/ Local manufacturer. Carries memory foam and latex mattresses.
http://www.bodyrestmattress.com/contactus.jsp Local manufacturer. These guys look kind of interesting. Carry both latex and memory foam but they also use recycled plastic bottles in some of their mattresses. I'd be curious about what they were like.
http://www.greenbeds.com/aboutus.asp Retailer. In Tampa. They have a range of latex and memory foam combinations including Keetsa. A bit of greenwashing happening here and I doubt I would buy something here but they would make a great testing ground for various latex memory foam combinations.
http://810beds.com/contact_us Retailer. Carries a range of memory foam and latex mattresses. Don't know prices.
http://www.roomstogo.com/tampa-furniture-stores/ Retailer. Mainly "S" brands but carries CMG (Carolina mattress guild) and has the embody series for "testing".
http://www.foamproducts.net/html/foam.html Sell polyfoam and memory foam. Foam store in Tarpon springs. Their site only lists mattresses with Viness memory foam which is lower density and quality but they also have Sensus toppers so they should be able to make a mattress with Sensus which is a higher quality memory foam.
http://www.my-rest.com/about_us~topic~Company+Information~fc~107.htm National retailer of mostly lower cost memory foam and waterbeds. Their headquarters and only storefront is in Tampa should you be inclined to go there.
http://mattressdr.com/ Retailer in Tampa. Carries Dormia memory foam and poly/latex. Also sells on ebay under mattressdreams. If you go here be aware that most of these are latex over poly but would make a good "budget" latexlike alternative and good testing ground.
http://www.somnissleepsystems.com/Mattresses.html Clearwater Retailer. Sells memory foam and latex
|Phoenix- thank you for your insightful suggestions. I will be checking out a few of these locations this week :)|
I recently purchased two memory foam mattresses from a small dealer in St Petersburg. One was for me and one was for my daughter. The place is called mikes memory foam ( I Googled memory foam mattress St Petersburg and they came up). I compared what he was selling before purchasing. Research online is easy. I am extremely happy with both mattresses and the prices were surprisingly reasonable. Only drawback is that there is no showroom and it's an online store so I was a little apprehensive at first but after calling them I felt better. I paid with Paypal. Hope this helps
