Mattress Firm Opens 1500th Store
The almost 24,000-square-foot store brings Mattress Firm’s store count to 85 in Arizona.
“We are thrilled to open this expansive space in Phoenix,” said Steve Stagner, president and CEO of Mattress Firm Inc. “The size of this retail location is a strategic opportunity in the market and supports our mission to provide customers with an unprecedented amount of bedding options at varying price points all under one roof.”
The store officially opens with a ribbon cutting ceremony and donation to a Phoenix-based Translational Genomics Research Institute. Mattress Firm is a strong corporate advocate for pancreatic cancer awareness and partnered with TGen, a non-profit organization dedicated to conducting groundbreaking genomic research to accelerate breakthroughs in healthcare, to kick off fall awareness activities at the Sonora Village store opening. Throughout the grand opening weekend, Mattress Firm will donate eight percent of all purchases to TGen. To continue their support, Mattress Firm is the presenting sponsor for TGen Foundation’s ninth annual stepNout Run/Walk/Dash on Nov. 2.
The store sells extended assortments from vendors such as Sealy Posturepedic, Tempur-Pedic, Serta, iComfort by Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, Simmons Black, Aireloom, Stearns & Foster and Hampton & Rhodes.
Phoenix District Manager, David Hickey, oversees operations at the new store location, supported by co-store managers Julius Orieukwu and Jose Hurley. David Hickey also oversees Mattress Firm and BedMart store locations nearby, which will remain open.
Founded in 1986, Houston-based Mattress Firm is the nation’s leading bedding retailer with more than $1.2 billion in sales for 2013.
