Parksville business to give away 15 mattresses for Christmas

M&N Mattress and Sofa Shop owners give back to community

M&N Mattress & Sofa Shop celebrated 20 years in business in Parksville on Dec. 2.

Owner Mark Nagra said they have been blessed and have much to be thankful for. To mark the milestone, Nagra is holding a 12 Days of Christmas Free Mattress Give-Away. You don’t need to purchase anything, simply send an email why you, or someone you know, deserves a new mattress this Christmas. There will be 12 single mattresses and three queen mattresses given away this weekend.

To participate, send your email at by 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 19.

“They can nominate someone or simply write why they deserve to get one,” said Nagra.

Nagra said they are grateful to the many customers who have supported their store over the years. The mattress giveaaway is just a small way of showing their appreciation to the community.

“We’re very lucky, we’re very thankful, we’re very fortunate that our community has been unreal to us for 20 years, especially this year with more people I think shopping locally,” said Nagra. “We’ve had a good year.”

Recipients will not have to worry how they can bring the mattress home. Nagra said they will deliver them and will also include pads and protection warranty for free.

“We don’t want people running around getting trucks to pick them up,” said Nagra. “We don’t want to take any cent from them.”

Nagra hopes this becomes a Christmas tradition.

“We’ll see what we’ve learned from this one,” said Nagra. “We will tweak it. We might give more mattresses next year. We always try to improve everything.”
