Both from their store on Broadway, near Main Street. I'm not sure if their store is still there or has moved.

Really really like our Serta mattress.

They have a factory in Burnaby so if you care about supporting local jobs and manufacturing that is a plus.

Ours is a version of their high end hotel mattress.

A lady friend has a bamboo mattress, by far the best mattress I've slept on. Pretty pricy but I
think you can occasionally find them on sale or on amazon for somewhere around your budget.

5 K could buy a lot of toys, IME it was either buy bikes/skis/kayaks or furniture since I can sleep any where I slept on a futon from the family room for many years and when my kid moved out to get married he left a bed in his room from somewhere ... works fine

Gotta agree - I like a firm mattress and foam is by far the most comfortable IMO. Obviously a lot cheaper too. With a 10 year guarantee.

I'd certainly recommend checking them out.

I don't think it's that crazy. We spend over a third of our lives in bed and our quality of sleep has a direct relationship with our quality of life. It makes sense to me to buy the best bed you can afford while paying attention to the law of diminishing returns of course.

We stayed with some wealthy friends here once and I don't know what kind of mattress we slept on but I've never had such a good night's sleep. Felt much better and more energetic than usual the next day as well.

You can't put a price on that.
