New High Street showroom is the only Ohio spot to try top online mattress brands before you buy

Sandman Sleep’s new High Street online mattress showroom is the only physical location in Ohio where you can try out all of the top online mattress brands (also referred to as beds-in-boxes) in-person: “Try Before You Buy!”

Bed-in-a-Box companies like WinkBeds, HELIX, Avocado, Nest Bedding, Puffy, Brooklyn Bedding, Nectar, DreamCloud, and Magniflex have all come together to make Sandman Sleep their home in Columbus, Ohio.

In case you didn’t already notice, the mattress industry today has become a major topic on the internet. There are countless brands online making all types of claims and promises, with a “solution” mailed directly to your doorstep … in a BOX! Sleep and mattress preference are very personal, and we spend 33 percent of our lives in bed. With this in mind, why would you ever just blindly “click and buy?” 

The solution: Sandman Sleep, Columbus!

The new, family-owned and operated Sandman Sleep Online Mattress Showroom is the only location in the State of Ohio featuring all of the top online mattress brands in the world, including WinkBeds, HELIX, Avocado, Nest Bedding, Puffy, Brooklyn Bedding, Nectar, DreamCloud, and Magniflex, a popular Italian-made brand. 

The showroom is supported and endorsed by all of these online mattress brands. In fact, the brands have trained the Sandman Sleep staff to become brand experts and sleep gurus. The showroom resembles an art gallery … not a mattress store. There are no commissioned salespeople. There are no misleading ads or prices. 

The showroom is located at 44 N. High Street in Columbus, and takes up the entire first floor of a 100+ year old historic building with 4,000 square feet of space, 18 foot-tall ceilings, exposed brick walls, beautiful hardwood floors, soothing music and the online mattresses of your dreams!

The owners, Kim and Rich Hanschu, have lived in Columbus for the past 30 years. Their daughters, Kendra and Danica, are recent college grads and also heavily involved in the showroom operations.

Kim explained, “We brought Sandman Sleep to Columbus because we wanted to help people with the most important aspect of Health and Wellness – Sleep. We figured out there was a high demand for online mattresses, but nowhere to try them out. The brands wanted to provide this service, as well, but they did not have the resources to open their own showrooms. So, we gave it a shot and now people have visited us from all over Ohio to ‘Try Before You Buy!’”

Beyond receiving expert advice and support from the Sandman Sleep family, there is another huge benefit for people to visit and purchase at the showroom – lower prices! Since the return rates for brands can be as high as 20 percent online, but less than 1 percent offline at the showroom, the brands offer customers big discounts on mattresses they purchase at the showroom. Discounts range from $50-350 per mattress BELOW the online prices! This is a win-win for customers and the online brands. 

Beyond mattresses and sleep products, Sandman is also focused on becoming a hub for innovative community events, including “mattress yoga” and “mattress meditation,” as well as “sound baths.” A hot new wellness trend, sound baths combine the healing sounds of gongs, Tibetan bowls and a range of other musical instruments to create a harmonic wave of sound that bathes the individual, resulting in better sleep and improved overall wellness.

Rich also explained,  “There is even talk about hosting fun community events, including ‘Bedtime Stories’ and ‘Breakfast in Bed!’” 

At the end of the day, whether you want to “Try Before You Buy” or just participate in a fun wellness event, Sandman Sleep is there for you!
