Mattress specialist Sleepy's retains its No. 1 ranking atop Furniture/Today's list of the Top 25 U.S. Bedding Retailers, with estimated bedding sales last year of $800 million.
But fast-charging Mattress Firm, the publicly held Houston-based mattress retailer, is not far behind, with estimated bedding sales last year of $758.5 million. No. 2 Mattress Firm was the fastest-growing bedding retailer last year in terms of percentage growth, with a 39.5% gain. And it also had more dollar growth last year than any other bedding major, adding $214.9 million in bedding sales. In addition, it added 181 stores last year, many from its acquisition of Mattress Giant, another Texas-based bedding retailer, which ranks No. 11 on the Top 25 list.
This exclusive survey ranks the top 25 bedding retailers based on estimated 2011 sales of conventional mattresses and boxsprings, as well as foam bedding, futons, air beds, adjustable beds and waterbeds. Estimated figures do not include sales of headboards, frames, mattress pads, pillows and other related products.
All sales figures, except those of publicly held companies which break out bedding sales as a separate line of business, are Furniture/Today market research estimates. Data is based on the 12-month period ending closest to Dec. 31, 2011. Company notes include the date of the fiscal year end or the 12-month periods that deviate from that date.
Sales estimates were derived from a variety of sources, including the 2012 published ranking of the Top 100 Furniture Stores, the companies themselves, discussions with industry suppliers and analysts and public company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
