Furniture World Magazine
Mattress Giant, the nation's fifth largest specialty bedding retailer, has completed the acquisition of Mattress Expo, with twenty-four stores in the Atlanta area, and Clearwater Mattress, with 21 stores in the Tampa Bay area. With the two acquisitions, Mattress Giant grows to over 340 stores nationwide while increasing their presence to 14 states.
"These two strategic growth opportunities are part of our year-long expansion and growth and these two key markets have tremendous future potential for our company," said Barrie Brown, President and CEO of Mattress Giant. "We're pleased to have the Mattress Expo and Clearwater Mattress teams on-board and are welcoming them to the Mattress Giant family. We are working to make this a smooth transition for all employees."
Mattress Giant customer service and process training has already begun with employees in both markets. "This is a positive step for all three organizations. It will provide the sales organization with professional growth opportunities and on-going involvement in our award-winning training program."
In addition, Clearwater Mattress and Mattress Expo locations will be remodeled to match the in-store formats and shopper experience provided in Mattress Giant locations across the country. "Our ultimate goal is to create a "best-of-both worlds" experience for our guests. Clearwater Mattress has a strong identity in the market and so does Mattress Giant, said Brown. "Combining the unique strengths of both will result in an even better experience for consumers."
