The Big Brands sell essentially identical mattresses with different names to different stores deliberately denying any possibility of price comparison. Denying consumers the opportunity to compare prices allows retailers to price gouge clueless customers. One major brand actually had over 130 different mattress names across the different retail chains. Every mattress was unique in name and look to deliberately foil comparisons with the same brand mattress at any other store.
Each retail chain would have exclusivity for their mattress ranges and price as they pleased.
