    Study of online bed buyers raises number of questions

    How satisfied are consumers with the mattress that they bought online?

    What happens if everything changes? Are you ready?

    From the seen-on-the-morning-information-scan category: An article talking about the “fall of exaggerated consumerism” asserts that the next generation of buyers is not going to play by the same rules as those of previous years.
