We are Michael and Mary Ruth Hanna, founders of Mattress Lot. We started this adventure in 2010. After Michael lost his job during the Great Recession, we decided to go into business for ourselves. We had recently shopped for a new mattress and became discouraged by the high-pressure sales, the misleading gimmicks and the lack of customer service. We saw an opening for a different way to do business.
We started out as a pop-up store in an old car dealership. Within a few months we became a popular alternative to the big-box chain stores. Now we are Oregon’s favorite mattress store, selling more mattresses than any other independent mattress store in the state. We’ve stayed true to our values of transparency, honesty, sustainability and amazing customer service.
We have strong partnerships with the best local mattress manufacturers. This means better service and higher quality for our customers. Our sales people do not work on commission, resulting in a more relaxed and fun shopping experience for you. In 2017 we founded an online mattress store for customers seeking the convenience of purchasing a bed in a box gel foam mattress. Stumptown Mattress features a foam mattress made right here in the Pacific Northwest.
We are part of the community. We’ve lived on the Eastside since 1991. Our children graduated from Grant High School. We contribute to numerous community causes including: low-income housing solutions, education/scholarships and youth athletics. We love Portland and we are committed to giving back to the city and neighborhood that gives us so much.
