Sleep Country Canada opens expanded distribution center

RICHMOND, British Columbia — Sleep Country Canada has opened a new distribution center here that is a consolidation of two centers, combining for a total of 70,000 square feet of storage capacity.

The mattress retailer’s new centralized site — the former sites combined totaled 48,000 square feet — marks the second of three distribution center expansions scheduled for this year. The first expansion took place in May in Calgary, Alberta, and the third is scheduled for Toronto in the fall.

"The added capacity provides the space required for regional growth and will allow continued focus on growing areas such as lifestyle bases, platform bases (and) accessories in addition to our mattress business and newly launched e-commerce business," Sieg Will, senior vice president of operations, said in a release.

“The new site will provide enhanced delivery services to customers in the greater Vancouver area by offering weekday evening for free in addition to the premium deliveries and other customer centric initiatives that have worked in other regions," Will added.

Sleep Country Canada Holdings Inc. operates 241 corporate-owned stores. The company operates under two retail banners, Sleep Country with 189 stores across Canada and Dormez-vous with 52 stores in Quebec.
