Why Are Mattress Prices Rising Across the Industry?
So, you’re browsing online for a new mattress and you just caught a glimpse of the price…
Suddenly, your jaw drops down to your feet. What the heck is going on??? Oki, don’t be too alarmed. We’ll go over all the details so you know exactly why this is happening, what to expect when shopping, and how you can still get a great deal!
Mattress prices have increased across the industry due to a multitude of factors, of which we are fully equipped (but not super excited) to talk about.
You’ve likely noticed an increase in prices at the gas station, the grocery store, the shopping mall, and everywhere in between. The consumer price index, which measures how the price of things changes over time, reported a 5.4% increase in consumer prices within the last year. That happens to be the highest jump since 2008 (ugh!).
What else is going on? Well, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly everything on God’s green earth, including the manufacturing industry. In a study conducted by The University of Texas at Dallas, manufacturers have noted supply chain disruptions, financial implications, and a rise in material costs as just a few of the annoying effects the pandemic has had on their businesses. Unfortunately, these issues affect businesses like us and customers like you. Damn you, COVID-19.
So, What’s the Damage?
Most mattress companies have increased their prices - some more than others. OkiOki continues to offer the most competitive prices without sacrificing quality.
