What Our Customers Are Saying

In my search for a new bed i walked into your store in Botany 26th May. It was my 8th bed shop i had been into in my search and i meet Gordana who was friendly from the outset. Now i am quite a difficult customer who often swears too much and doesn't have much of a filter on my mouth. I found her to be a fantastic woman to get along with and she didn't let my brash nature get to her. Gordana was really informant on beds, their springs and what beds would not suit my huge frame (140kg) haha. She was awesome on explaining info on posture which i did not get from other shops. After having a think about things overnight i ended up buying a new bed off your company and it came down to 2 factors which sealed the deal. Yep it was a good price for good bed but ya gotta remember i can get that from several other places. The other factor was Gordana and she for me sealed the deal. It made it a good shopping experience. You got a good asset their bedpeople.

I also wanted to say how good your service was, very personable without being invasive or pushy. Enough info was given when asked. It takes skill to gauge customers and just how much or little 'service' they want or need, I will happily recommend you Jasmine to our friends. Thanks again.
