New business spotlight on Mattresses by Appointment

Nate Troisi is more than happy with his new business, Mattresses by Appointment. Since opening at 562 Hepburn St., Williamsport last June, he’s been selling plenty of mattresses.

“It’s been phenomenal,” he said.

Troisi and his girlfriend, Helen Westmiller, do everything at the business, from meeting with customers to delivering the mattresses. All patrons are seen by appointment.

“We do the best we can to accommodate everyone,” he said.

Troisi worked for a number of years as a collision estimator for a Ford dealer, but longed to be his own boss.

“It was always a dream of mine,” he said.

He and Westmiller began researching the possibility of opening a mattress store and saw a need in the Williamsport area.

“Neither of us had owned a business, so there was quite a bit to learn,” he said.

No sooner did they open up their store, when the business just “took off,” said Westmiller. Before Troisi knew it, he quit his job to devote all his time to the business. Eventually, they were forced to rent space next door to their store for more mattresses they needed to sell.

Troisi said mattresses are literally stacked to the ceiling in the back of the one building.

“We are growing,” said Westmiller.

Troisi said the biggest challenge for him has been just learning about the products. Many of their customers are finding the business through Facebook or by word of mouth.
