It’s more than just getting the sale. The most important question to ask someone is ‘How did you sleep last night?’
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (PRWEB) February 14, 2020
KMOX’s podcast series “The Business of Family Business” features a variety of family owned businesses in the St. Louis area. In January they chose to interview the owners of STL Beds, Dave and Doug Belleville, due to their business’ success and strong family ties.

STL Beds has been serving customers since 1986. They offer great prices on mattresses, bedroom furniture and waterbeds throughout the entire United States. Dave and Doug are professionally trained mattress experts with 50 years of industry experience combined. They understand the importance of a good night's sleep and have a passion for helping their customers find a sleep solution that’s right for them.
Podcast host, Ryan Wrecker, asked a few different questions about the history of the company, trends in the mattress industry and what sets them apart from some of their competitors. Dave and Doug were happy to dive into the rise and fall of waterbed popularity and discuss current trends that they’ve noticed in the industry. One of these trends specifically is the rise of big bed-in-the-box companies. They explain that one of the key things that sets them apart from these popular online-only companies is the fact that their mattresses are made of high quality materials and they make sure to identify and cater to everyone’s specific sleep needs.
“It’s more than just getting the sale. The most important question to ask someone is ‘How did you sleep last night?’ or ‘Is your mattress comfortable?’ Most people really can’t answer that question.” Doug said, “Diet, exercise and sleep are the three most important things that we need to focus on in our lives and our business is based on one of those things.”
They concluded the interview by discussing the future of STL Beds. Dave is looking to slowly phase out of the business and hand it over completely to his son Doug who is happy to receive it. They have found success in a niche market and look forward to a bright future of providing high quality mattresses and service for their customers.
