Testimonials

  • My name is Rick M. I am 44yrs old. Up until e few years ago I had a great job in management in the auto sector, I was married with 4 children and owned a home in Niagara Falls.  I’ve come to learn that circumstances can change quickly. Jobs are lost. Husbands and wive’s separate, and your world can quickly crumble around you.

    I got a bed and before that I used to get up in the morning with back pains. I used have problems. Now I have no more pain. It’s the best thing that I have ever gotten. Thank you for who ever picked the bed out for me. They couldn’t have done a better job unless I did it myself. I really do appreciate it.
