Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (319) 656-2573 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

MEET OUR SLEEP SPECIALISTS

Mary Hostetler - Hi there! I’m Mary and I am happy to be a Manager at The Sleep Center as well as a Sleep Specialist. I’ve always loved sleep. Who doesn’t?! From a full 9 hours and REM cycles at night to a 20-minute power nap during lunch break, I’m a big advocate for the importance of sleep. Did you know that we spend about a third of our lives sleeping? That means if I live to be 80 years old, I will have spent almost 27 years in bed! That’s a lot of time to spend on a surface that isn’t comfortable or that gives me a stiff neck. Why spend so much time being so uncomfortable and cranky when I could spend it in relaxing bliss instead? That’s the difference in cheap sleep solutions and real, scientifically designed, PROVEN sleep solutions. So come on in and let me help you find out to have the best 27 years of your life!

Tony Hostetler - Hi! I’m Tony and I am very excited to be a Manager at The Sleep Center. We are passionate about finding you the correct mattress for your sleep needs. Whether you toss and turn, have neck or back pain or simply get overheated throughout the night, we can find the right mattress for you. Come visit us and let us take the confusion and stress out of mattress shopping!
