It’s that time of year again where mattress companies hope to attract customers with their biggest promotional offers: Labor Day weekend is approaching.
For many families, the extended holiday means taking a trip to the beach one last time before the weather starts to turn. For others, it means one final weekend of relaxation before school really starts. Yet for some interested consumers, the weekend means it’s time to do some mattress shopping.
The two weeks leading up to Labor Day are the best time on the calendar to get a ridiculously good deal on a mattress. In fact, as Mattress Firm just put out in a recent press release, Labor day represents the biggest sale of the year for their company.
Why is Labor Day such a big time for mattress sales? The short answer: it just is, and it’s been this way for a long time now.
Consumers itching to get into the mattress store and replace their old bed, we strongly suggest trying two things.
One is to take advantage of the Labor Day sales while there are an abundance of discounts and coupons.
Two, make sure to check online brands for their mattress offerings. Bed-in-the-box mattresses are now more reliable and substantially built than they ever have been.
As Mattress Firm indicated, Labor Day is the biggest sale of the year for them, so consumers might not be able to get a better deal in a store at any other point in the year. Best case, shoppers will have to wait a couple of months to get deals this good.
We have always advocated taking advantage of sales if people are looking to buy from a store. Mainly, we understand the markups in the retail business model, and this is probably the best time of year to get an incredible deal from a store.
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend coming up, and make sure to take advantage of the great sales that are here from mattress retailers because of it.
