“My family is very Green and when we were in the market for a new bed we opted to buy organic, and local.
I began a hunt for organic mattresses and for some reason I first found a store in San Francisco. I bundled up my family and drove to the city, an hour and a half away. I didn’t have the best experience there – the owner only showed me the ‘store brand’ of mattress for some reason, though probably because it’s the one with the highest markup.
I went back to the internet assuming I was going to have to order one online, without trying it out first – horrors! Luckily I expanded my search and The Healthy Bed Store came up.
I packed up my two year old and drove the 45 minutes to Folsom. My first impression of the showroom was pleasant. A very friendly dog, Cody, came up to greet us and next we met Claudia, the co-owner, who made us feel right at home. She kindly went over some options for mattresses with me while my son colored on all of her available paper. My son was not as enthusiastic about laying around as I was so Claudia walked him around the store while Wayne, the owner, filled me in on even more details and moved mattresses around for me. That weekend my husband was able to make it down there with us and Wayne graciously went over all the options again with him and moved a million mattresses around to build the bed that we specifically wanted.
We decided on the Savvy Rest Serenity Pillowtop and an amazing organic wool duvet. Wayne called us as soon as they arrived at his store and came that evening to deliver them personally. He put our bed together for us and even took the packaging away with him!
We have had the bed for awhile now and both agree that it’s the most comfortable mattress that we’ve ever owned, or slept on. The service from Wayne and Claudia was so amazing it actually leaves me a little sad that we won’t be needing another bed for years to come. Though, I will definitely be purchasing my sons next bed from them.
I would recommend this store to anyone in the market for a really great bed! OH, and I was also very happy to find that they’re actually certified by the Sacramento Sustainable Business council in all five categories – Energy Conservation, Water Conservation, Pollution Prevention, Solid Waste Reduction and Green Building! They not only provide eco-friendly and organic bedding/mattresses but also are an eco-friendly business!”

“My husband and I had been researching mattresses for a few months as our daughter prepared to move from a toddler bed to a “big girl” bed. Little did we know we’d find the perfect store right in Folsom!
Claudia patiently explained the features of several products in the store, going far beyond the typical “just lay on it and feel it” attitude most mattress stores have. Being concerned about chemical odors of lower quality-units, we wanted to make sure our happiness with the purchase continued once we got it home.
After a few trips (measuring our furniture, doing some research on manufacturers, etc.) we settled on a specific brand. Claudia had kept amazing mental notes on ou wants-and-needs, and the process was painless and smooth—a far cry from prior bed buying experiences.
The 2nd half of the pair—co-owner Wayne—showed up as scheduled at our house with our daughter’s new mattress. He brought it upstairs, unpacked it, and took care of all the packing material afterwards.
Our daughter LOVES the bed and so do we—we take turns reading to her at night and enjoying its comfort.
Overall, this is a terrific local business and one selling great quality products alongside a genuine customer-first attitude. Very highly recommended.”

“First and foremost, you should know that this is NOT a review posted by an owner, or a friend of the owners. We are real-life customers of this shop that felt compelled to share their experience with fellow yelpers. In other words, what you’re about to read is 100% on the level.
My wife and I stopped by this bed shop a couple months ago to check out some Keetsa mattresses. We’re both big into being green and this place seemed like it would be right up our alley. Being a mattress shop…the only question was, what kind of salesperson were we going to be bombarded by as soon as we walked in the door?
The answer was not applicable, as there was zero sign of bombardment from the time we walked in until the time we purchased our second Keetsa from them a month later. The lady that helped us (the co-owner…her name escapes me at the moment) was extremely friendly, very informative and practiced a zero pressure sales approach. These are all unheard of in the mattress buying world, which made working with her an absolute pleasure. She had helpful insight on all of the models, let us lay on multiple mattresses…even ones that she had to pull from the back just for us…and let us know the lead time on each model in case we wanted to purchase them.
If you’re interested in an environmentally friendly mattress, this is without a doubt the best place to go. They have a wide selection from a whole slew of different manufacturers, and the quality of service is second to none. If you live anywhere near Folsom and you’re in the market for a comfy bed, don’t buy anything until you've paid this place a visit.”
