Rapid Retail Expansion Means Growth for Kingsdown

MEBANE, NC – Top 10 bedding producer Kingsdown, Inc. reported a surge in sales activity from small and mid-size retailers throughout the central and western states leading to more than 40 new retailers being added to the company’s selling roster.

“In particular, our Kingsdown and Sleep Beauty lines are delivering stronger results for independent retailers throughout the country. Our distinct mattress styling and features, combined with delivering more robust margins for retailers than they can receive from some other national brands are making our offering very attractive to their bottom lines,” said Executive Vice President of Sales Kevin Damewood. “Another important factor for us is our extensive training and marketing support. While some manufacturers have been forced to cutback in these areas, we continue to make important and strategic investments in their areas to support our retailers.”

Some of the new Kingsdown retailers include: Bob Mills Furniture, Mattress One, Mattress Xpress, Mattress Land and Reed Furniture.
