    Nebraska Furniture Mart is a force of nature

    I recently had the pleasure of visiting Nebraska Furniture Mart’s newest location in The Colony section of Dallas at an event for the Cancer Support Community of North Texas. And while the store’s 560,000 square feet of selling space is every bit as impressive as veteran NFM watchers would expect, just as impressive were the changes taking place outside the sprawling retail complex.

    Tempurs flare as meeting date nears

    With the annual meeting of Tempur Sealy International shareholders less than a month away, the tension between the company and dissident shareholder H Partners seems to be increasing by the day. The two sides have been filling shareholders’ inboxes and mailboxes with charts, graphs, financial tables and other materials supporting their points of view, and neither has been holding back on its opinions about the other side. “Tempur Sealy shareholders are suffering through sleepless nights,” headlines a recent, 95-page presentation sent by H Partners, an investment firm that owns about 10% of the company’s shares and had called for ...
