Houston – Mattress Firm Holding Corp. has entered into an agreement to acquire Mattress Liquidators Inc., which operates Mattress King retail stores in Colorado, and BedMart retail stores in Arizona, for about $35 million. This will add approximately 75 specialty retail stores to the Mattress Firm company-operated store base in markets where it currently operates, primarily Denver, Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.

“We are excited to further expand our position in the Denver, Phoenix and Tucson markets,” stated Steve Stagner, Mattress Firm president & CEO. “We believe that the acquisition of the Denver stores will allow us to leap into a strong position in that market, building on the foothold established by the acquisition last month of the formerly franchised Mattress Firm stores in Denver. The additional stores in Phoenix and Tucson will supplement the existing base of quality stores that we currently operate in those markets. This acquisition is aligned with our relative market share strategy, which continues to build long-term value creation for our shareholders.”
