NO MORE COUNTING SHEEP: Enjoy great savings as Bestbeds celebrates 19 years this month

BY TAI CHISHAKWE - AUGUST 5, 2014

Research shows that we spend one third of our lives asleep - often in one bed for up to 10 years, so it is understandable that finding a comfortable bed is important. Indeed, a poor mattress has been shown to be one of the leading causes of bad sleep which in turn affects your quality of life.

Just like everything else today, bed design and manufacture is sophisticated and diverse and choosing a bed to suite your personal requirements can be tricky. However, I recently found that you need not lose sleep about your next bed purchase.

At Bestbeds, situated at 39 Westbourne Road, Central in Port Elizabeth, you can expect someone to walk you through the process of choosing the bed of your dreams!

On entering the shop, which has currently undergone some makeovers, I was amazed at the range of beds available! Filling the floor were superior-quality beds ranging from single to King size units and boasting various new mattress technologies from familiar quality brands like Simmons, Cloud Nine, Rest Assured, Sealy, Serta and Edblo.

While I tried the beds on show and marvelled at their fabrics and styles, I had an opportunity to chat to Bestbeds’ wonderful owner, Pat Slabbert.

“We established the company in September 1994. Back then, no one was offering PE residents superior quality mattresses and new bed technologies,” she said.

“Today, we have grown into being among the most recognisable bed specialists locally. While a portion of our business comes from repeat customers, we also get new buyers who get referred to us by our satisfied customers.”

It was also apparent that the ladies at Bestbeds were more than salespeople.

“Combined, my staff and I, have over 40 years’ experience in ensuring our customers get the best beds and new technologies for natural and comfortable sleep.

“We offer more than excellent customer service … we provide our customers with unmatched expertise and reliable guidance before their purchase,” described Slabbert.

Bestbeds also offer delivery and the setup of the bed at their customer’s home.
