Sleep On It!

We were established in 1979 as Waterbed Shack by Virgil & Gary Duncan. I started working for them in 1983 and bought the business in 1987. We have a sister store in Harrisonburg. We offer all kinds of beds (sleep surfaces) waterbeds were where we started then expanded into innerspring and futons. Soon to be followed by air beds and visco or Swedish foam. If you sleep on it we've got it.
Our 'selling" approach is a bit different from most other places. First we really don't run sales. Most furniture store "sales" aren't much of a sale. When you mark up the price to mark it down how much of a sale is that? Also our staff is NOT paid on commission. We're here to help you make the best choice and that may not be the most expensive thing in the store. We want a happy customer that will come back year after year. If we make a mistake we want to correct it. If a bed has a downside we'll tell you. There is no perfect bed (sorry!) so you need to make the best choice you can and that means you need all the relevant information you can get. That's what we're here for.
Along with mattresses we also have a pretty complete line of bedroom furniture (headboards, chests, dresser, nightstands, etc.). Our futon line is very popular and once more we do it a little differently. You pick the frame style and finish that you want, put the mattress on it that best suites you and the cover you like. So the combinations are endless.
The best thing I can tell you is come in and see what we offer.

Crossroads Graphics and Design.

With more than 20 years of combined experience in the art and science of graphic design and printing to complement our affinity for great service, we’re ready to earn your business.

Owners Rick and Jean Moyer are the dynamic duo behind Crossroads Graphics and Design.

Rick’s focus is creating the right image for you. His keen, artistic eye, listening skills and business acumen ensure you get memorable images and products that get you noticed. Scientists, the world over, have been trying for years to define Rick’s creative parameters. One frustrated NASA spokesperson recently commented, “I give up. Rick’s creativity knows no boundaries.”

Jean’s charge is sales, marketing and office workflow (chaos control). In addition to keeping the “boys” on task--her wit, charm and smile make every visitor feel like part of the family. Clients in the know, avoid Jean’s dark side by bringing her a cup of her favorite gourmet coffee. “It’s the best investment you can make if you’re bringing in a rush job,” said one customer, who requested he remain anonymous.
