About Bear's Furniture & Mattress

franklin store

Bear's was started in 1957 by A. Don and Louise Bear in the village of Sugarcreek, Pennsylvania and has continued to grow and expand over the past 50 years. Bear's has been under the ownership and guidance of Michael Moss since 1990 and undergone a multitude of changes since then. Under Mike's leadership, Bear's has strengthened its position by adding a Custom Comfort Center (choose among hundreds of fabrics to customize your furniture!) at the Franklin store and expanding to a second location in Cranberry, Pennsylvania - Bear's Mattress Den - specializing in mattresses and related sleep products.

Bear's feels strongly about balancing the needs of our customers with the relationship of our suppliers. First priority will always be to provide a quality product to our customers. But we also consider other factors. For example, many of our products are "Made in America" and we feel it's important to support those manufacturers. Many of our customers agree.

Bear's offers over 40 different name brand mattress sets on display in a variety of sizes, types, and qualities. We specialize in adjustable beds featuring five different adjustable base styles and over two dozen different mattress choices. That's over 100 different combinations to choose! We carry bunk beds, day beds, metal and wooden beds, headboards, all types of bed frames and rails, sheets, pillows, and much, much more!
