Wow, the silly season is upon us…how time flies while we're having fun! Yes, the craziness has begun, for all retailers and customers, as we suddenly realise that we need things organised for those wonderful visitors that come and stay in our beautiful part of the world at this time of year. Time for family get-togethers and making sure our homes are ready for the festive season and one of the most important areas are, of course the beds needed. I wonder how many of us actually sleep in the spare room and realise how lovely or sadly, uncomfortable, they are. Our guests come to stay and smile in the morning. Hopefully they are truthful when asked how they slept, and not in the back of their minds secretly wanting to go home, as they miss their comfy bed! I know I've been there and done that and I know I'm not alone! It's so important to offer our guests the best sleep we can afford, so I suggest you spend a night in the spare rooms and then decide. We at BedsRus have a great range of affordable, comfortable beds and have stocked up for the festive season.

We, of course have a large range of different spring systems and comfort layers to meet all your requirements, but in order to match you to your perfect sleep; we need as much information as possible, so forgive us for asking so many questions. The reason for me raising this, is over the past decade of being in the bed business, I've found a lot of customers who initially buy a cheaper bed for themselves for the bach, versus the bed they have at home, as it's "just the bach". But in hindsight, many of our loyal customers have come to realise that it really makes sense to have the same bed at the bach as they do at home, so they can enjoy their stay to the maximum and not wish they were back home…and it's a time to relax, unwind and enjoy … we've earned it! It's the end of another busy year…time to spoil ourselves and rejuvenate.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to advise you, that at this time of year, most manufacturers close for the festive season and, hence production is at an all-time high. We of course have brought out our crystal ball and hopefully ordered enough stock and choices to satisfy your needs. So if you are intending to upgrade your bed at the bach or the guest beds, please get in early so we can assist you before the guests arrive. Also bear in mind that the volume of deliveries needed at this time of year escalates and we do our utmost to meet your needs. Please bear with us and we will always go the extra mile, within reason. In a nutshell, planning ahead is always the better choice!


So bring your smiling faces in and we will endeavour to make your festive time stress less and a happy one. We at BedsRus would like to thank all our customers for their business over the past year, hope you are sleeping well and as the year draws to an end… just breathe deeply and have a wonderful break. We, however will be here seven days a week, with the exception of December 24, 25 and 31 and, of course, New Years day, with a smile on our faces and may 2018 be a very good one and hope to see you soon.

Please remember that information and advice is always free, so if you have a question or a concern, call us on 09 4383550 or 0800141640, seven days a week.
