Have you ever really stopped and thought about how important the right mattress is for your health, happiness, marriage, and life? You’re probably thinking mattress shmattress, but the reality is we spend over one-third of our life in bed. If you live, say, 75 years, that’s 25 years asleep, or 9,125 days. Wouldn’t you prefer those 219,000 hours […]

An Overnight Success Story

A few weeks ago somebody complimented me on Garrison’s growth: “It’s really cool,” he stated, “you guys are an overnight success story.” I thanked him for the compliment, we talked for a few more minutes, then I went to my office and pondered what he said.

Helping People is Why We Do It

I never wanted to be in the furniture business.  I went to school and graduated with a hospitality management degree and had worked for companies like Hyatt and Disney.  So when my father asked me to leave my career in San Diego to move up to Medford, Oregon to buy his furniture store, I thought […]
