McElheran’s takes mattresses seriously, we would go as far as to say it’s the most important item in your bedroom. That’s why we carry only one mattress line, which we sincerely feel is the best mattress for you.

Vi-Spring Mattresses have been produced since 1901 when they pioneered the pocket coil and are handmade in England with their craftmen taking eight hours to construct each mattress. Vi-Spring uses only the finest natural materials including real Shetland Isle wool, silk, cashmere and supple bamboo, avoiding synthetic foams and glues. Here at McElheran’s, we will advise you about the best mattress and firmness for your body and Vi-spring promises you a lifetime guarantee.


Our Sleep Room

At McElheran’s we feel that a few minutes in the middle of a showroom isn’t long enough to decide on a mattress you’ll have for years so we constructed Edmonton’s first and only, double-insulated private in-store Sleep Room. You chose the mattress, whether it be a twin, full, queen or king, and we will set the inner-spring tension perfectly for you.
