SLEEPRETAILER.COM Trends From The 2017 Fall High Point Market SLEEP RETAILER ENEWS

Online Mattress Reviews—Where Do We Go From Here?

Sleep Retailer Yesterday at 11:05am •

Online reviews got you down? Be sure to check out the Specialty Sleep Association’s panel discussion on how to harness the power of con- sumer reviews. The panel will be held on Jan. 29 from 3:30–5:30. A Q&A session will follow.

“In a way, the fall market served as a pretty accurate representation of the bedding re- tail industry right now: the struggle to attract bedding buyers to High Point is not dissimilar to the struggle it is to get consumers into retail stores. Despite limited traffic, there was a clear anticipatory energy throughout the show, as everyone agreed that the mar- ketplace is on track to look wildly different in five years time.”

Customatic And Mantua Mfg. Co. Grow Partnership

“The Internet was buzzing about the surpris- ing story. While details of the bitter legal dis- pute were alluring, the Fast Company article also illuminated troubling trends plaguing the marketplace. More than simply exposing these issues to a wider audience, the piece shed light on some of the most pressing challenges bedding retailers are grappling with—and hinted towards opportunities to overcome them.”

Mattress Firm Faces Uncertainty In The Wake Of Steinhoff’s Fraud Accusations

Sleep Retailer Today at 1:05pm • BEDGEAR strengthens its commitment to the TCS New York City Marathon with the roll-out of its robust “Sleep Fuels Marathons” campaign, designed to support runners in a myriad of ways.

“Customatic Adjustable Bedz and Mantua Manufacturing Co. are expanding their on- going partnership to offer a greater value opportunity for customers. The improved partnership will merge the best of Customat- ic’s international manufacturing, product in- novation and design prowess with Mantua’s domestic production, warehousing, sales and marketing expertise.”

“The future of Mattress Firm is looking pre- carious, as its parent-company, Steinhoff In- ternational, finds itself mired in allegations of accounting fraud. The retail group is facing investigation into whether it has manipulat- ed its financial performance reports. With the potential of selling off billions of dollars worth of assets on the table, speculation has already begun to swirl as to how this may affect Mattress Firm moving forward.”
