Unique New Mattress Store Accepts Bitcoin; Will Hold Open House with Giveaway
While there seems to be no shortage of mattress stores in the area, a new family-owned shop has popped up on the Shawnee Mission landscape that’s different from the rest.
Factory Direct Mattress (6600 College Blvd, Suite 128, Overland Park, KS) is one of the first brick and mortar stores in the Kansas City metro to accept Bitcoin as payment. Customers can buy their mattress, adjustable base and bedroom furniture using the Strike App to transfer Bitcoin. Of course, conventional methods of cash and credit card are also accepted.
Co-owner Greg Doring explains, “We believe that cryptocurrency in general and Bitcoin in particular is the future of money and finance and our store’s approach reflects that.”
Doring and his wife, Adrienne, opened the store after being laid off due to Covid-19. It was a bold move given that the couple has five children ages one to 11.
Their store is innovative in many ways. Factory Direct Mattress boasts high quality mattresses built just up in Iowa at prices 40% to 60% less than the chain mattress stores. How do they do it?
“Our Iowa factory builds for some of the big name brands. We have a private label deal with them, so we get the same quality, but customers get a much lower price. It’s like walking into Costco and buying Kirkland instead of the more expensive name brand,” said Doring.
Factory Direct employs other creative strategies to keep prices down: 1) It’s only open by appointment, so employees don’t sit in an empty store on the clock. 2) It efficiently uses every square foot of its cozy Overland Park showroom and warehouse.
While Factory Direct Mattress isn’t usually open beyond appointments, it will hold its first open house Sunday, October 24, from 3 to 6 pm. The store will have a sale going on and guests can enjoy treats while entering to win a queen-size adjustable base, valued at $1,100.
