The TV-Mattress Connection
Former neighbors compete
You get the feeling that if Mike Tawil could sell mattresses out of the trunk of his car, he would. But mattresses don't fit into car trunks, so he went looking for Ann Arbor's cheapest space to rent, which he found at the little Platt Road Center (tucked in behind the Rite Aid at Packard and Platt). He is doing business in the most stripped-down way possible to keep the overhead at next to nothing.
