and i'm starting to wonder if "this" papillion is the original author as the one who posted "twice" above. i believe i remember the person that i hauled away the old bed frame at no extra charge and that person actually bought a second bed from me about a year after the first one. that person was a great customer and a nice person and she would have called me back in a heart beat if she had any problem with either bed. anybody can use any screen name. again folks, just another person messing with me and telling lies. i expect they'll keep doing it and i'll keep "calling" them on it!

Bought a king last year for $400.00 with free delivery. Went to nfm after and the closest closest comparable mattress was around $2,000.00.

Ray did not pass away. He is a good man who delivers a quality product and stands behind all his sales.

All of his mattresses come with a factory warrenty and he stands behind his product 100% so why wouldnt you cash in on that insted of saying to stay away from the place?

You would have to be desperate or have self worth to buy one of those bedbug-riddled spooge sponges that he sells.

27 years ago today I began my journey into the mattress business as a manufacturers rep covering north dakota and northern minnesota calling on small to medium sized furniture and mattress stores. the only thing I knew about a mattress is the fact that I slept on one. i had several territories over the years and worked for a few other companies as well. i drove every highway and by-way from minot n.d to galveston tx from denver co to st. louis mo. i moved my wife and kids several times taking on new opportunities and they never complained. over the years i called on americas largest furniture store, the second largest mattress chain, a legend in houston and a major dept store and other medium and small mom and pop business along the way. i was given the opportunity to watched and learned from the "very best" in the industry. the very best! seven years ago i decided to strike out on my own and operate my own small business as the mattress peddler. it hasn't been easy but its been rewarding and has allowed me the freedom and life style i enjoy today. i'm still two paychecks away from homelessness like a lot of us but, God always takes care of me. ALWAYS! He never fails. EVER! EVER! i would have never found this career if it weren't for my brother Dave Powers! the greatest big brother a little brother could EVER have! fact! and a great mentor to me not just in the mattress business but in life as well! i am living the dream and taking it one day at a time!

Was it Dave's idea to sell roach infested mattresses to unsuspecting people?

Wow someone sounds angry! I'm going to take a wild guess your home was already roach infested and probably migrated into your mattress. Don't be angry at the mattress guy call an exterminator and move on buddy. Your posts ate really annoying.#get a life

We bought a mattress in May of 2012, already looking to replace. The thing is so riddled with lumps and bumps and both are suffering from bad backs. We thought it was worth it to save a few bucks but guess not.

I bought my last set of mattresses from this guy and it was great. I am getting ready to redo my guest room and plan on buying from him again.
