Metro Mattress Offers A Sleep Quiz
While Metro Mattress does have a traditional brick and mortar stores, they also have a website that many choose to visit to start their mattress shopping journey. Having a website for shoppers to visit is a great tool because it allows them to do their research and feel less stressed over the buying process. The one problem is that there are still a wide variety of mattresses and brands to choose from through this company.
So how does one narrow down their search?
Metro Mattress takes things a step further than many mattress stores by offering visitors to their site a sleep quiz to help them find the perfect mattress for them.
First, users will select who the mattress is for: an adult, child or guest. Then you will be asked the total weight that will be on the mattress.
The next question asks how old your current mattress is. This is then followed up with a question about your current level of sleep satisfaction.
You will then be asked about any sleeping issues you may currently be having. Once you select all that apply to you, you will be asked about your preferred sleeping position.
After choosing your ideal sleeping position, you’ll be asked how often you watch tv, read or work in your bed. Moreover, of course, they ask you what kind of mattress you need, soft or hard and everything in between, which is then followed up with what type of pillow you’d like.
Finally, you’ll be asked what size bed you are looking for.
Once you have filled out the mattress quiz, it will then give you a summary of what your comfort rating is and show you how you answered each question. The downside? You have to submit your email and some other personal information before they will share your custom mattress picks. For those who don’t mind sending your email to them, then go for it and see what your recommended mattress is!
For those who don’t feel like going through the sleep quiz, Metro Mattress also has downloadable documents to help guide you on your mattress buying journey. All you need to do is enter your name and email address, and they will send you the documents for download.

What Do Consumers Think of Metro Mattress
Metro Mattress offers quite a variety of different top name mattresses for their customers, and one would think that would lead to a positive experience for shoppers. While many recent reviews from customers online through Google and Facebook both show very happy customers, there seem to be more unhappy campers than there are happy shoppers.
Is Metro Mattress Learning from Prior Mistakes?
Because of the fact that many recent reviews of the mattress store seem to be of top quality, it leaves us wondering if they are truly listening to the complaints of their customers and making some much-needed changes to the way they run.
This would be a major step forward for the New York-based mattress store and will only help to bring back those customers that they may have lost in the past two years based on the public commentary. By the looks of things, it currently seems as if visiting the brick and mortar stores will benefit the consumers more than simply buying online. We say this because most of the positive reviews are coming from those that took the time to visit the stores.
That being said, for those in Upstate New York, we recommend actually visiting a local Metro Mattress store for your actual purchase, or at the very least visiting so you can get the name of the individual that is helping you along your purchasing journey.
