Hi-
i live in Birmingham AL
I am wondering if you are aware of a store that features local/regional mattresses like you often recommend in other locations? When I head out to various mattress stores here it seems like they all serve up Sealy, Serta, Stearnes and Tempurpedic.

Thanks for any advice.

I to live in Birmingham area and also have been looking for a new mattress. The only one that I have found that actually manufactured mattresses, so far, was Royal Bedding on Pelham Parkway. Further down Pelham Parkway, Ensley-Fairfield Mattress Co , has a few custom ordered inner springs. But they have them made elsewhere, not manufactured on site. Neither location carries any of the big boy brands. Both also carry a line of latex mattress, though don't expect a massive selection, small shops. I honestly thought I was going to have to drive to Atlanta to see a latex mattress.

Hope this helps.

Hi uniden009,

Post #57 here has the better choices I'm aware of in the Birmingham area and ProHazard has already mentioned two of them (thanks!)

Out of these ... my first choice would be Royal bedding and I have talked with Tom the owner many times and think highly of the quality and value of the mattresses he builds he builds. I also had the chance to talk with him on several occasions when he was developing the latex mattress he makes and it's designed to appeal to a wide range of body types and sleeping styles and it has the added benefit of being two sided. As I've mentioned a few times on the forum ... he calls it "delicious" :).

While your choices may be fewer in number than other areas ... you certainly have some better choices and not as much to "sort through" and of course you would also be avoiding the lower quality/value of the major brands that are so common in the area.
