Our new Nod Shoppe is taking shape. We plan to have a variety of sleep accessories, such as bedding, pillows, salt lamps, candles and even some aromatherapy. Check out the great Acorn slippers we just got in! We've added these to our required uniform here at Shovlin Mattress Factory!
Ron Shovlin, a lifelong resident of Westfield, has been involved in the family business, Shovlin Mattress Factory, his entire adult life. In addition to running Shovlin Mattress Factory, he has always been a very active member of the community. Ron has served on the Executive Committee of the Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce. “A strong community that supports its local businesses is what this country was built on and I feel is what makes this area something special,” says Ron.
Now, Ron and his wife, Kara, run the family business together. Ron and Kara met at Westfield High School and have been together ever since. “Having my wife’s creative ideas when it comes to the marketing has really allowed me to work on the business and focus on product development.”
The two of them not only own Shovlin Mattress Factory, they also started a clothing line called “I Dare You." This is a clothing line designed to challenge and inspire people to go after the things they always wanted. They refer to the line as “challengewear," and it was born out of their love of sports and all things fitness. Ron was a successful athlete in high school and college and continues to utilize those skills by coaching his two young boys. “Being involved is the best way to give back. When you’re passionate about something it’s easy to get others excited.”
