The mattress I selected was shrink wrapped, and looked as though it had been a bit scuffed on a corner--all common events when being moved around, said the salesman. When we picked up the mattress later and cut off the plastic wrapping, we were shocked to find a tag, telling us it had been used and "sanitized" and we were also shocked to discover the strong scent of cigarette smoke! This was a VERY used mattress that smelled filthy!
I called the store to tell them and the first response was "we don't take returns on clearance. The manager quickly relented, however, and has offered us a new version of the same model. They won't deliver, however, and now we are waiting to see if we can obtain this bed or not. I told the manager that I was shocked by this; she didn't seem to acknowledge that this was a problem. I will be contacting other local businesses to see if this is common practice.
