Shop 'til you drop: Going to the mattresses

Five extra readership points if you know what that means.

Today's post means something different.  We're not bringing our fantastic memory foam hybrid mattress with us (we'll need it to sleep on when we come back home for visits, and besides, I think it's time we graduated to queen size).  So we need to buy a mattress once we arrive in Abu Dhabi.

I know what you're thinking.  Why am I wasting space in the ether (not to mention my morning) writing about something as mundane as a mattress?

Think about it.  Unless you're one of those people who survives on three hours of sleep, you spend one-third of your life on a mattress.  So it's pretty effing important.

As usual, we set out on the mattress hunt in our usual way:  I do the silent research, and Mr. Socially Gracious actually talks to the people.  It works great, and those of you who know us know why.

And we found the place to buy a mattress.

It's not just that we discovered (to our happy surprise) that there are identical sorts of mattresses to what we've spent the past five years on in Abu Dhabi.  It's, to quote Dennis Denudo from The Castle, the VIBE we got from the store manager of (get this) The Living Room Furnishing store.  Here's the story:

Once I located the contact information for this outfit (which, incidentally, sells mattresses, not living room furnishings), Mr. S-G fired off an email asking if they sold the kind of mattress that is not all tempurpedic foam, but some sort of hard latex at the bottom and a few inches of memory foam on the top.  This is what he received in response, just a few hours later:


Thank you for your email.

HOLY RAPID RESPONSE, BATMAN!

Upon thanking the fellow, we received yet another email telling us how much he was looking forward to having us visit his showroom and supplying us with the mobile number of his colleague and the specific location of the store (by Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre, behind DHL/behind the corner of Al Falah Street/Sheikh Rashid Road = Old Airport Road).  Yes, that's the address.

Needless to say, we're pretty confident where we'll be shopping for a mattress in Abu Dhabi.
