Home Mattress Center is a 3rd generation Delaware-based, family owned and operated business, founded by the Bloom family in 1965. For over 50 years the company has served many tens of thousands of satisfied mattress customers throughout Delaware and the surrounding communities of northeast Maryland and Southeast Pennsylvania by helping them get the best sleep possible at a great price.
After graduating from New York University in 1962, Herm Bloom went to work with his father Georg Bloom, in the family’s Furniture Stores in Media and Chester, Pennsylvania – after plans to work on Wall Street fell through. In 1965 Herm inherited the business from his father and began to focus on selling mattresses.
The company, then called Home Budget Center, opened a large Mattress and Unfinished Furniture showroom on Kirkwood Highway in Delaware in 1973, and expanded to Peoples Plaza Shopping center in Newark/Glasgow in 1989.
Today, operating as Home Mattress Center, the company is managed and operated by Herm’s son, Andy Bloom and Andy’s wife Katie. Together the father & son duo managed the business for over 25 years, until Herm retired in January 2018.
Over the years the company has also operated mattress showrooms on Rt 202 / Concord Pike in North Wilmington, Rt. 13 in New Castle and in the former Tri-State Mall in Claymont, Delaware. Today the business is focused on operating two state of the art mattress and sleep technology showrooms where customers can experience first-hand the newest innovations in sleep systems, as well as its growing e-commerce division, which can be found on the web at: www.HomeMattressCenter.com
While the mattress business has changed dramatically over the years, the Bloom’s and the entire Home Mattress Center team have maintained a core commitment to treating customer’s right, with a helpful, no-pressure sales approach that makes the buying experience very comfortable for consumers regardless of the size of their budget.
Home Mattress Center’s in-store Mattress Specialists are called "The Sleep Doctors" because they are well trained in product knowledge and have a friendly, no-pressure, bedside manner. The Sleep Doctor mattress specialists are non-commissioned and honest. If you need great advice to find the mattress that’s right for you, visit our stores or call our toll free number and talk to a Sleep Doctor mattress specialist without all of the high pressure to buy.
We’re A+ Rated by the Better Business Bureau and have been selected for many years by the readers of the "News Journal" as the best place to buy mattresses. But our greatest accomplishment and point of pride is the many countless testimonials, words of appreciation and "Thank You’s" we’ve received from our customers - many of whom are our neighbors throughout the local community.
