Best place to buy mattress/box spring and couch
Condo has finally closed and I will be on island at the end of July to purchase a mattress/box spring and couch. I will have my truck and have no problem shopping Craig's List, yard sales and Reuse Emporium for bureaus, nightstands, coffee tables and such, but want to buy a King mattress/box spring and couch new. Any suggestions? Price Mart has good prices, but only sells memory foam mattresses, which I don't like. I have been to Carlos Furniture at Tutu and they offer free delivery. I searched this topic on this board before posting and see Carlos has pretty good reviews. Any other suggestions of places to shop? Thanks in advance. Looking forward to spending my winters on St Thomas!
Stick with Carlos Furniture.
I've had issues with quality of mattresses and customer service with purchases from Arab stores in the past so now stay away from spending any money with them, if I can avoid it.
Some may not like me saying that but it's been my experiences.
Arab stores? Isn't that who owns Carlos?
Honestly, can't say as never purchased anything from them but from many other Arab owned stores over the course of my decades here and there was always an issue. I've flown to PR and found better quality than anything here. The next time I need to buy any furniture for my home on island, I'll order from off island. Just can't stand the inferior quality, high prices, attitude and Bullshit.
Too many bad experiences.
Some seriously bad ones,the one below is a paltry experience.
For instance, bought a SEALY posture pedic mattress for $about $1K.
By 6 months, it was so uncomfortable and this was flipping it, turning it, buying additional mattress pads, etc. After 1 year, I took it to the dump where it belonged. No help from store, even though I'd called them previously. No record keeping, no consistency, Bullshit constantly.
That's just one example of many.
