Grateful to see the people in this photo back at Mattress Lot. That’s our team, the smartest, most creative, most loyal colleagues we could ever hope for. We love these guys like family. Now We can say, they’ve been here through the good and the bad. And now things are looking good again– or at least better!
We want to tell you where we’ve been and where we hope to go. We are very fortunate. We will survive. We feel awful for the thousands of small businesses devastated by the pandemic. We are so fortunate. We shut down back on March 19th and had to furlough everyone. After we wiped away the tears and stopped feeling sorry for ourselves we focused on our online shop Stumptown Mattress and we quickly developed a new ecommerce site for mattresslot.com. Stumptown Mattress saw terrific volume in April. And Mattresslot.com‘s “Bedroom Basics” shop is gaining traction.
We paid all of our manufacturers on time and we owe $0 to all vendors!
We received Payroll Protector funding which made it possible to hire our full timers back (thank you Umpqua Bank an Oregon based bank).
We are now open by appointment only. Our team members have set up stringent protocols designed to keep everyone safe. Right now only 3 appointments each day. Max 2 people per party. Everyone must wear a mask, use medical bed covers and pillow cases when sampling the products, keep social distance and we clean, clean, clean. It feels like a terrific system. We want to make sure we are doing this right before we move too fast. The main thing is keeping everyone safe – our team and our customers.
We continue to fund several of our community initiatives including the Mattress Lot Dream Big Scholarship. We are eternally grateful for all of the support shown to us by past customers, neighbors and especially our team. Thank you all for cheering us on. We are on solid ground and should be here another 10 years to serve our community. – Michael & Mary Ruth
