Number of the Month – Mattress Stores in Alpharetta

Around the first of the month I publish the number of the month, a random bit of local trivia.

Thirteen

Eat your heart out, Princess and the Pea. This is the number of specialty mattress stores in Alpharetta and Milton. Mattress Giant, Mattress Firm, Original Mattress Factory… They even outnumber Starbucks in our little suburb. I considered only stores that exclusively sold mattresses, omitting places like Rooms-to-go and Macy’s. How these guys stay in business, I’ll never know.

    Might as well add Big Lots on Hwy. 9, they advertise that they sell Certa mattresses.

    Lee, my wife and I were literally talking about this yesterday. I guess when you can sell one unit at $2k, it doesn’t take much to keep the store in operation.

  3. A:

    Considering you’re only supposed to replace a mattress every 10 years or so, I also wonder how they stay in business.

  4. Travis Allen:

    Be sure to pickup some new tires on your way home from the mattress store. I’ll wager that there are more tire stores on Hwy 9 running from Alpharetta up to the Forsyth County line than there are mattress stores.

  5. K:

    Got aspirin? No worries. Drug store aplenty.
