madeintheusaOur Mission

One family one mission
With a mattress store on seemingly every corner and a hundred different options when it comes to buying a mattress, our mission remains the same: Keeping it simple while producing quality mattresses that we know will last at a fair price. At Reliable Bedding, we are dedicated to quality, sleep, and service. The mattress industry spends a substantial amount of money on marketing techniques that help drive consumers to their respective brands. We believe the integrity of the mattress should not depend solely on the appearance and branding. Our commitment to our consumers and retail partners focuses on comfort and reliability. However, we shift our attention to the side of the mattress the often gets overlooked. The most important side: the inside.


Bob Parris founded Reliable Bedding in 1967 after spending some time working for Diamond Bedding.  In the beginning, Bob's main business concentrated on small 'mom & pop' furniture retailers in North Carolina from Havelock to Hickory.  Bob offered three mattresses (Good, Better, and Best) using full size coil counts of 180, 252, and 312.  As his retail business grew, he started to garner attention from some prominent furniture manufacturers in the region.  In 1970, Reliable started manufacturing sleeper sofa mattresses for Broyhill, Henredon, and Clyde-Pearson (later purchased by Lane).  During the early 1980's, Reliable began manufacturing roll-away mattresses for Leggett & Platt.  

The bedding industry has always been competitive.  Bob wanted something that would make his mattresses unique and did not want to focus on price alone.  In 1972, Reliable began double-quilting their mattresses.  This technique was unique in the fact that this made Reliable's mattresses feel more firm than other company's mattresses which was a highly recommended comfort feel during that time.  Today, Reliable still uses similar techniques in some of their mattresses.

In 1974, Reliable decided to offer their services to the public.  A few notable customers were Dean Smith (UNC College Basketball Icon/Legend) and Terry Holland (UVA College Basketball Icon/Legend).  In fact, the VIP name was given because Dean Smith purchased that particular mattress.  The VIP is still one of the best-selling mattresses in the company.

Business grew at unprecedented levels and in 1977 and moved to its current location on 7147 Mendenhall Road.  Bob has always believed in the importance of faith and family.  Much of the family is still active in the business.  Bob's grandson Dustin Rebert serves as the Vice President/General Manager of the company.  Dusty has been with the company since 2007.

We are going on 55 years of business in the same community. All of our products ship nationally for both consumers and contract customers. You may have heard of Reliable Bedding when mattress shopping, if not, we look forward to building the ongoing trust that has kept us going for over half a century.
