Furniture Today names three Retail Giants of Bedding

HIGH POINT — A fast-growing online mattress retailer, a hometown hero and a mattress-focused buying group have been named Retail Giants of Bedding by Furniture Today.

The winners are Nectar Sleep, Connecticut Mattress By Tom Wholley and the Nationwide Marketing Group. They will be honored at the Furniture Today Bedding Conference, set for May 7-9 at the Westin La Paloma Resort in Tucson, Ariz.

“These three retailers show that success in the mattress industry comes in many different shapes and sizes,” said David Perry, executive editor of Furniture Today, the organizer of the Bedding Conference. “We continue to recognize the growing importance of online mattress retailing and once again salute an outstanding bedding e-tailer. Nectar Sleep is the fastest-growing online retailer.

“But brick-and-mortar retailing remains vital, a fact that Connecticut Mattress By Tom Wholley demonstrates with its personal service and the integrity of its CEO, Tom Wholley,” Perry continued. “And Nationwide Marketing Group’s independent retailers are winning in their markets with exclusive mattress lines and galleries and strong marketing programs.”

Nectar Sleep, based in San Francisco, burst onto the bedding scene with $44 million in revenues in 2017, a figure that ballooned to about $250 million last year.

Nectar has partnered with Mattress Warehouse of Frederick, Md., in a bid to establish a significant brick-and-mortar presence.

Connecticut Mattress By Tom Wholley, based in South Windsor, Conn., is operated by bedding veteran Tom Wholley, who has served consumers in his market for decades. Integrity and value are the hallmarks of his three-store operation.

Nationwide Marketing Group, based in Memphis, is winning in the mattress arena by making that category a focus of its marketing efforts. Mattress University is a regular feature of its PrimeTime shows, which attract independent retailers from around the country.

The three Retail Giants of Bedding will be honored at a gala awards dinner on May 8.
