Furniture World News on

Mattress Firm Inc., an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc. and one of the nation’s leading mattress retailers, announced the opening of Texas’ largest bedding store. The new 18,000- square- foot store is adjacent to the company’s corporate headquarters at 5815 Gulf Freeway in Houston and is the largest of the chain’s 300 stores nationwide. “Our vision was to design a store that would offer the largest selection of bedding products anywhere, as well as special features not normally found in a mattress store to enhance our customers sleep experience,” said Steve Stagner, Mattress Firm chief operating officer. “The result was a one-of-a-kind store that raises the bar for our industry and offers the ultimate shopping experience for consumers.” The Mattress Firm SuperCenter features more than 60 different models of mattresses from top manufacturers such as Sealy®, Tempur-pedic® Simmons®, and Stearns & Foster®. Specialty mattress and bedding products incorporating the latest in sleep technology are also on display in the Sleep Rx gallery, including pressure relieving mattresses from Tempur-pedic® and Sealy®. The store also features a Value Center offering an assortment of value-priced bedding and a Clearance Center offering a wide variety of overstock items at further reduced prices. The design of the store is based on Mattress Firm’s new SuperCenter concept which features a combination of wood flooring, ceramic tile and carpet throughout the store along with artwork and natural wood fixtures and shutters accented by a warm color palette to create a comfortable, home-like look and feel. The “racetrack” floor plan allows customers to easily move throughout the store to browse and compare the different styles and brands, which are arranged by comfort level (pillowtop, plush, firm) and price. Customers can work with one of Mattress Firm’s on-site Sleep Experts, catch a program about how to get a great night’s sleep on the company’s exclusive in-store FIRM TV Network, or enjoy a coffee and a massage in a Human Touch® robotic massage chair in the store’s soon-to-open customer relaxation area. The new store will also offer the company’s “Red Carpet” delivery service, offering same-day delivery service, along with comfort satisfaction and price guarantees. “As we enter our 20th year in business, we’re excited to unveil this new flagship store in our hometown of Houston,” said Stagner. “Sleep is among the most critical health concerns for consumers, yet mattress retailers have not kept pace with this need. We are committed to offering the broadest, most customized selection of mattresses, as well as knowledgeable staff to educate our customers on the new innovations in sleep comfort.” “In addition to offering a great retail experience for our customers, the large footprint of this store means it will play a significant role in many of our community outreach programs, serving as a local collection point for annual food, coat and toy drives. We’ll also host special events here throughout the year, focused on sleep related topics.” The new store will host an upcoming Sleep Expo during May’s “Better Sleep Month” where doctors will be on-hand to offer free advice on how people can get a great night of sleep.
