WTOP is the # 1 radio station in the Washington DC news market, and for some time they have a spot where a well-respected personal trainer comes on and talks about fitness. Imagine my surprise when this morning's segment came on and the conversation was "What kind of fitness gear to buy someone for Christmas" and the recommendation was a new mattress. I've been saying this for years on end - most people don't replace their bedding often enough and are sleeping on broken-down bedding that's well past its prime. You average mattress lasts seven years. The All-Cotton ones like Royal Pedic (only brand I sell) will go double that however they cost more. Here's the audio link to listen to today's broadcast, under 3 minutes - you'll need your speakers on.

I laughed when I heard this - validates much of what I tell folks in my store.
