PlushBeds Sells Over 1,000 Mattresses Online in 1st Half of 2010 In a semi-annual review, online mattress company Plush Beds reported the sale of over 1,000 mattresses through their website PlushBeds.com (http://www.PlushBeds.com) during the first half of 2010.
LEWES, Del., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Plushbeds is one of the many premium retailers seeing an increase in online sales. In June, Reuters reported that luxury items and products sold online were the fastest-growing U.S. sales categories in the retail sector in May. Additionally, eCommerce logged its 6th straight month of double-digit gains and 10th consecutive month of gains.
Numbers this strong suggest that in a tough economy, consumers are not willing to sacrifice quality but are rather getting more savvy in how they purchase higher-end products.
"Especially in industries with notoriously high retail store markups," explained Plush Bed VP Michael Gordon, "Consumers are finding they can get more for their money through buying factory direct over the Internet."
Gordon continues "Customers can buy a handmade 100% natural latex mattress through us, factory direct, for less than $2,000, where the same mattress would cost $3,500 to $4,000 in a local mattress store. By eliminating the retail store from the distribution chain, we can offer customers higher-quality mattresses at prices they can afford."
When asked about their growth, Gordon continued, "To succeed online, we knew we had to take the risk out of the mattress buying process. All of our mattresses come with free US shipping and a 100-night money-back guarantee. If a customer doesn't fall in love with their new mattress in the first 100 nights, they can simply exchange it or return it for a refund."
Plushbeds also attributes its success to its dedicated customer service team. "To thrive in a down economy, the whole buying experience needs to be exceptional. We have non-commission mattress specialists available seven days a week to help customers both before and after their mattress purchase." Gordon continues, "We regularly receive compliments about how informative and helpful our specialists are."
