SLEEP NUMBER CONTINUES TO ELEVATE
Company Opens Six New Sleep Number Stores; Relocates and Remodels 14 Stores Across the Country
MINNEAPOLIS – (Aug. 10, 2012) – According to Consumer Reports, most consumers intensely dislike mattress shopping, which causes many to delay buying a new mattress. Unlike other mattress retailers, SLEEP NUMBER® offers consumers a completely different shopping experience – one that goes beyond the mattress and focuses on each customer’s unique sleep issues – and provides proprietary, innovative Sleep Number® beds and bedding that meet sleepers’ one-of-a-kind needs.
“Our mission is to improve our customers’ lives by individualizing their sleep experiences so they can achieve their very best sleep and lead happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives,” said Shelly Ibach, president and chief executive officer, Sleep Number. “We’ve transformed the mattress-shopping experience by focusing on each customer’s unique needs and offering benefit-driven sleep products that can be truly individualized. Our end-to-end customer experience goes beyond a one-time transaction to create a connection with our brand that lasts a lifetime.”
When shoppers visit one of approximately 400 Sleep Number® stores across the country, they are guided by their Sleep Professional through a sensorial, mattress-shopping experience that focuses on individualizing their entire sleep experience. Sleep Professionals utilize their expertise and exclusive, interactive tools throughout the process:
- IndividualFit™ 3-D Imaging – A digital map that displays the body’s pressure points on a firm mattress and helps shoppers find their ideal level of comfort, firmness and support…their Sleep Number® setting.
- PillowFit® – An experience to help shoppers find a pillow that perfectly fits their head, provides just the right neck support and proper shoulder alignment.
- Sleep Solution Tools – Helps shoppers select exclusive sleep products to solve sleep issues; whether they sleep hot or cold, battle allergies or own pets, among other considerations.
Customers looking for benefit-driven sleep products and a mattress-shopping experience that exceeds their expectations can visit one of the approximately 400 Sleep Number stores across the country. Visit www.sleepnumber.com to find a store locator.

The relocation transformed the original retail store from a 900-square-foot mall location to a 4,900-square-foot store located near the mall. The new Roseville Sleep Number store opened Aug. 3.
Sleep Number® Beds and Products
Unlike other mattresses that feature foam or springs inside, the Sleep Number bed features DualAir™ technology inside, which allows couples to adjust each side to their individual comfort and support at the touch of a button. Each Sleep Number bed comes with a 20-year limited warranty and a 30-night in-home trial.
Sleep Number also offers a complete exclusive line of innovative sleep products designed to meet every individual’s needs.
