Glendale, The Mattress Capital of the World

What gives in Glendale? Central Ave. has more mattress stores than I've ever seen clustered together in my life. One block has five mattress stores. Leeds. Serta. The Mattress Store. And two Orthos. Isn't that really a lot? How many mattresses does one community need? Are the employees of each store at perpetual war with the employees of other stores? Has there been any violence? Any explanations out there?

  2. Five mattress stores in one block! This gives new meaning to the old gangster expression, "We're going to the mattresses."
