ShopLocal is more than just a trendy slogan. Buying local is important to building strong, vibrant communities – and Mansfield is no different.
For one Mansfield family, starting their own business is a way to provide for their family while contributing to the city’s economic growth. Their new business, Family Mattress and HomeStore, just recently opened in the Tom Thumb shopping center. We caught up with Misti Lenoir, one of the store’s owners, to learn more about this new locally-owned Mansfield business. Here’s what she had to say:
Tell us a little about yourselves.
We are born and raised proud Texans and have lived in Mansfield for nine years now. Myself (Misti Lenoir), my husband Jay, and my brother Craig Regina are the owners of Family Mattress and Homestore. Jay is currently an active duty Master Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps stationed in Fort Worth at Naval Air Station JRB . He has been active for over 22 years and plans on retiring with about 25 years in service total. I was in the Marine Corps for 8 years and am currently a dental hygienist in south Fort Worth. We have one daughter, Trystan, who attends middle school in Mansfield and enjoys playing soccer and attending church youth group. My brother, Craig, is a single father to his four-year-old son, Craig Jonathan. Craig has been in the furniture and mattress business for over 12 years. We all enjoy outdoors, playing sports, and hanging out with family.
What products and/or services does Family Mattress and Homestore offer?
We offer a large variety of sleeping solutions including mattresses and adjustable base options, pillows, bedding and furniture for the entire house.
Tell us why you chose to open Family Mattress and Homestore.
Craig was working for another company that offered to franchise a location, but he had his own business model and ideas. We wanted to be more than just another mattress store with pushy salespeople and neon liquidation letters painted on windows. We wanted the store to have the atmosphere of home. We’re excited to provide that in our own community surrounded by family, our friends from soccer and church. We have made a commitment to provide a superior level of service to customers while they are making important purchases for their home. Our goal is to offer products to help them achieve the best sleep of their lives and give their home the look and feel they desire.
How did you get started in this business? My brother, Craig Regina, has been in the furniture and mattress business for 12 years. He has worked with large and small retailers in the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex and Austin. He wanted to start his own business with his family and one he would be proud to share with his son. My husband and I have been saving for years for retirement and investment opportunities – we decided, what better investment than to invest in family? I became interested in the science behind the products and how involved the companies get in trying to solve sleep problems. It makes an actual difference in quality of life when people can sleep well.
Does Family Mattress and Homestore have a stated mission statement?
To provide customers with a personal level of service, quality products, and affordable prices. Bringing honesty and respect to our customers while helping them make an informed decision.
How does Family Mattress and Homestore give back to the community?
Giving back to the community is extremely important to Family Mattress and HomeStore. We are committed to working with several different veteran groups to help our service heroes. We also have a strong commitment to children and schools. We will be announcing several sponsorships between our organization and MISD later in the year. Since we belong to this community, it is important for us to be of service and give back to the community in which we live.
Why do your customers select you over your competitors?
Our motto says it all. “Where Family Matters”. At Family Mattress and Homestore we want you to be 100% satisfied with your new purchase. We offer a money-back guarantee to give all our customers peace of mind when they put their trust in Family Mattress and HomeStore. We are a local veteran-owned business with unbeatable prices.
What is your favorite part about owning a family-run small business?
The ability to take everything we noticed wrong about the mattress and home furnishing industry and make meaningful changes that benefit our customers, our community, and our family for years and years to come.
