When two software developers from Silicon Valley came together to create an online mattress company, it seemed like the company would stay, well, online. That was the whole point, wasn’t it? To streamline the mattress shopping experience so you wouldn’t have to talk to obnoxious salespeople or even leave the comfort of your own home? But as we listened to our customers we kept hearing the same thing over and over again:
“We want to try your mattress in person.”
So we opened up a small section of our company HQ in Phoenix, AZ where people could come and experience the real deal—and they loved it.
Fast forward to February 2019. We don’t have a small trial space squeezed into our HQ anymore—instead there are full blown Tuft & Needle stores in Scottsdale, Gilbert, Seattle, Kansas City, and, now, Raleigh. We’ve worked on making these stores different from any other mattress store you’ve ever visited, and now the only thing missing is you.
This month, we’re celebrating our 5 retail stores by getting to know our neighbors face-to-face.
During the entire month of February, if you visit one of our retail locations (in Scottdale, Gilbert, Seattle, KC, Raleigh) and post a photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram tagging @tuftandneedle and #mytnstore, you will be entered to win any size T&N Mattress of your choice (see the full rules and regulations for details). Tell us what you think about our expansion from digital to physical, take a boomerang on the Pouch, or better yet, do both.
We’ve loved being there for you during the times when you want to buy new sheets without putting on pants (and we still well be). But we’re also really excited about this next phase of IRL T&N, and we think you will be too. Come say hello!
