    After 17 years of working in the bed-ding industry, both in retail and whole-sale, Jonathan Handyside, owner of The Back Store, recognized a shift in product innovation and technologies.

    Conventional mattresses today sim-ply do not offer consumers the same improvements in real sleep benefits and overall product durability as does cur-rent technology, Handyside said. I wanted to create a retail atmosphere that mirrored that shift and focused solely on todays newest sleep innovations.

    The Back Store is a unique better sleep boutique, offering discerning shoppers a complete assortment of the newest and most innovative sleep sur-faces. The store is the areas only com-plete Tempur-Pedic Gallery, featuring more than 100 Tempur-Pedic products and accessories.

    Specifically focusing on sleep from a better health perspective, The Back Store specialties include Tempur-Pedic natural latex and adjustable air mat-tresses designed to reduce pressure and maintain a more correct postural sleep-

    ing position. The store carries the larg-est selection of non-metal spring mat-tresses, adjustable motion bases and specialty pillows in the St. Charles county area.

    Friendly and knowledgeable Trained Better Sleep Experts are available to recommend and assist in personalizing mattresses specifically for each cus-tomers needs.

    Were an alternative sleep store that focuses on peoples back and sleep problems, and we have sleep systems that speak directly to those problems, Handyside said. Our goal first and foremost is to become the preferred retailer of St. Charles residents seeking a pain-free, undisturbed, quality nights sleep.
