Mattress Warehouse of DeKalb, a locally owned family company. Visit this retail store in DeKalb, at 1224 E. Lincoln Highway (across from the Moose Club and behind Star Worlds Arcade). The showrooms are open to the public six days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. It is closed on Tuesdays. “In 2000, we found an old 1920s brick warehouse that was kind of off the beaten path on DeKalb’s east side,” said owner Mike Kisluk. “We had the idea of establishing a store with very low overhead so that families could afford good quality mattresses. We started with just five mattresses in a showroom so tiny you could hardly turn around. But the support from the community was so incredible that we expanded our showrooms.”
All mattresses are made in the USA.
Mattress Warehouse of DeKalb recognizes that 21st Century demands often place time pressures on families. So, 75 to 80 percent of the mattress line-up is in stock, ready to be loaded into a customer’s van or truck. Sameday delivery is available on most merchandise. All the products are new and backed by a manufacturer’s warranty. Providing family-budget pricing means Mattress Warehouse is often the destination of choice for “big girl” and “big boy” beds. “One of the best things about working here is being around the little kid high energy and enthusiasm,” Kisluk said. He reassures parents that their children are always welcome. The Mattress Warehouse of DeKalb strives to offer a safe, relaxing, nopressure atmosphere. “We aim to keep the store lowkey,” he said. “We are ready to explain how the mattresses are constructed. Everyone is encouraged to lay down and try the beds. A comfort-based ersonal-preference approach to choosing a mattress is best.” “Our prices still surprise people,” Kisluk continued. “Our guiding principle is to find the best mattresses we can and sell them at the lowest prices possible. We are grateful to all the local people, Northern Illinois University students and shoppers from distant towns for your support.
