Home and Living received a pillow from The Pillow Bar at McRoskey Mattress. We love it because it is cool, firm yet cuddly and great for a side-sleeper. We decided to interview CEO Robin Azevedo. McRoskey is the only location on the West Coast offering The Pillow Bar.
Q.: Robin, welcome to Home and Living. Can you tell us what you do at McRoskey Mattress?
R.: Hello, my name is Robin McRoskey Azevedo. I am the third generation owner of McRoskey Mattress Company. And I do whatever my staff tells me! I do focus on sales and marketing.
Q.: What is the McRoskey Pillow Bar?
R.: The McRoskey Pillow Bar is located at our Palo Alto, California showroom. At the Pillow Bar, a McRoskey customer can make his or her very own custom pillow filled to the perfect fullness with pristine Hungarian goose down.
Q.: We tested out your side sleeper pillow and love it. What else can you tell homeowners about this product?
R.: I bet you loved the way it supported your head and neck! This boomerang-shaped pillow provides wonderful tension relief for neck and shoulders. It was developed by Dr. Mary Collings, a noted sports chiropractor, who understands the importance of proper “posture” when sleeping.
“Pillows are an important part of your sleep comfort equation.”
Q.: Why are the scent sachets included with a pillow order?
R.: The sachets are designed to help soothe you to sleep. You may request the lavender sachet or the martini sachet, a selection of aromatic herbs.
Q.: What are some of the reasons that Readers should think about choosing your pillows and do you have some tips for shopping for a pillow?
R.: Let me give you the tips first, including some tips on pillow care.:
- When you shop for a pillow it is important to be able to lie down and try the pillow. Do not skip this step.
- You are selecting a pillow to provide head and neck pressure relief by keeping your head level. Your head should not be pushed upward or roll down.
- Ask about the materials used. Look for cotton coverings. Look for quality down that is well washed. A quality, well washed down often will not aggravate allergies.
- Use a pillow protector and pillow case and wash these weekly along with your sheets.
You can shop for pillows at McRoskey showrooms or online with confidence! All our down pillows are filled with the best quality Canadian or Hungarian down. At McRoskey, you will find our Sales Associates are well informed and will guide you in selecting a pillow with the “proper fit”: one that relieves head neck pressure and allows you to lie level.
Q.: Where are customers going to find the products and do you have a website for more information? Is there also a blog?
R.: McRoskey Pillow Bar products are located at our Palo Alto showroom. Both San Francisco and Palo Alto showrooms carry our full selection of down pillows and duvets made by Northern Feather of Canada.
Q.: Is there anything else you would like to tell Home and Living Readers?
R:. Pillows are an important part of your sleep comfort equation. And pay attention to your mattress…another important part of the sleep comfort equation. Needless to say we are experts at mattresses and box springs. Our San Francisco factory is busy making a wonderful choice of comforts that our customers love!
