The American Mattress Story

American Mattress is Chicagoland’s only locally, family owned and operated mattress company, and to put it simply, we love what we do. Offering only the best products and building customers for life is who we are.

The idea for American Mattress started almost 30 years ago between two coworkers who sold mattresses together at a locally owned company—that is until that company was bought by a large corporation. Disheartened by the way in which a culture of family and community quickly disappears under big corporate policies, these two friends decided to strike out on their own and create the kind of company in which customers would be served on a personal level and relationships would be built for life. In 1988, we opened our first location and haven’t looked back since.

Today, American Mattress is still family owned and operated between the Chicagoland Area and Indiana and has satisfied more than 1 million customers. Our original owners are still actively involved in the company today and their initial goal remains exactly the same since our very first customer received delivery of their mattress back in 1988: Treat every customer like family.
