They have a new building in Plymouth and threw hundreds of office chairs into the dumpster when they moved to the new building so they must be ok financially.

It is long past time to fire Shelly Ibach. This former Macy's fashion plate is not up to the job.

I was a potential customer a couple of years ago. Went into the store in Maplewood mall and encountered a salesman too slimy for most car dealerships. Just awful. And when I lay on the bed, it felt just like a camping mattress. Not sure how they've lasted through the recession, frankly.

Most comfortable bed I have ever slept in is my Sleep Number.

davidtbrooks, I concur. We've had ours for seven years & it's the best!

A Sleep Number bed- the way to keep a marriage happy! My wife and I love our SN bed. She likes a firm mattress while I like a soft mattress. No compromises.

Sad to see someone is letting the air out of their profits..

Obviously, something is not working.....time for a fresh look. Just because you like the product, doesn't mean the company is being run well.

After looking at Select Comfort, we ended up with a split king memory foam unit at a fraction of the cost. Plus, no noisy air pump to go bad. There are better air beds if you really want one. I couldn't believe the markups and high pressure sales. Their sales expenses have got to be astronomical because of their locations.

Those writing expressing fondness for the beds (probably employees) obviously are not shareholders.
