Where to buy Beds if needed within a week?

Hi everyone, I have visitors coming to stay with us for a while, and we had the basement finished a few months ago, and ordered mattresses which are coming tomorrow. However I forgot to buy the actual bed (headboard/rails etc). Other than IKEA, is there another store that offers either pickup/delivery within the next 5 days or so?

I was thinking IKEA because it's pretty inexpensive and looks nice. It just won't be great quality, but don't really care for the occasional use in the basement.

Thank in advance!!

Jysk would also have bed frames in stock...probably of similar quality and price to Ikea.

Sleep Country should have the rails. And our headboard came from Winners or Homesense... Both of them were "take home today" type of situations.

I should have also pointed out a few things

1) I am in Edmonton, Alberta
2) I'm looking for an actual bed with the side rails etc. Not just the metal base. (worst case scenario I can pick that up from Costco I guess).


Thanks. I will check JYSK (if there is one here).

Another thing I noticed is that all these new beds don't have the capacity to take box springs, is that the case or can I put a box spring on it anyway.

You can put a box spring on pretty much any frame/rails, but it might raise the elevation of the bed to a comical level, especially since mattresses are getting so thick these days.

IKEA should be a good option.

Why not just get some steel-frames w/o headboards? Surely you can find some for cheap on kijiji, etc.?

Everyone rips on IKEA for being held together by pressboard and dreams but I for one haven't broken my Malm yet.
It's actually quite sturdy.

I've only had problems with their dressers. Doesn't matter which line, price point. Drawers all fall aprt after couple of years

I don't know, we bought some bunk beds there that have been pretty solid. We did make the slight modification of actually screwing the slats into the bed frame though.

I can't comment about their beds but I've purchased other things from there and I 100% agree.
The bar stools and like "large chair" I bought fell apart quickly.
