Mattress World began as a concept, back in 1997. It started out with only a few Ontario retailers, who thought it would be a good idea to focus exclusively on the mattress business.The original name for the concept was ‘The World’ and the first flyer was published in March of 1998.
The idea of a ‘mattress only’ store quickly grew and before long, participation extended to 18 retailers located in smaller markets, right across Canada. Eventually, the official name changed to ‘Mattress World’ and, as part of Cantrex Nationwide Group Inc., is becoming a well known entity in the competitive sleep marketplace.
The typical Mattress World store owner, is an independent business person, who lives and works in the town in which he, or she, has their retail outlet.
While Mattress World stores are independently owned and operated, the program, as a whole, is now developed and managed by a Banner Manager.The Banner Manager plays an important role in the success of the Mattress World concept, by setting the strategic direction, conducting ongoing market research and introducing new and innovative sleep systems to the retail stores.
As a group of stores united under a common banner of Mattress World, retail members can take advantage of many benefits offered to them, such as:
When Mattress World first started, the product assortment focused mainly on the mattress itself, but now, has evolved to include all aspects of bedding – from Lifestyle Adjustable bases, headboard/footboard, sheets and comforters, mattress protectors and pillows.
The interior design of a new Mattress World store reflects today’s modern colour palette and preferred shopping layout. The stores are clean, well lit and showcase the product selection in a manner that is easy for customers to shop.
Mattress World has worked hard over the years at partnering with brand name suppliers, such as Simmons, Beautyrest, Serta, iComfort, Sealy, Springwall and Galaxy – each supplying quality, Canadian made sleep sets.
The Mattress World group of stores will continue to grow and expand, as there are still many regions and markets in Canada, where a store such as Mattress World can flourish.
