I just picked up a Simmons Beauty Rest - Lisbon Plush mattress/box spring set. I paid $796.00. When the dealer loaded the mattress in the vehicle, he noticed the red tab which showed through the sealed plastic. It says "floor model". Does that mean this mattress was either returned by someone else or used as a floor model before coming to me and being sold as "brand new " ? He said it meant that the manufactuer assumed it was going to be a floor model. so before I unwrap it, I thought I would check with this blog. Thanks. Tina.
Hi Tina. When a floor sample order is placed with the factory, there's a paper label stuck to the outside of the plastic that says so. Theoretically, more attention is given to the tailoring of a floor sample. In the past, it has happened here where I changed my mind about which samples I was going to display and sold off one that I had ordered as a floor sample. You can tell if it's new by the way it's bagged. New mattresses are machine wrapped and heat sealed. When a mattress has been opened and re-bagged at the store, it's taped closed.
