Off topic conspiracy theory,(but a good one). Mattress firm
Most major cities have multiple mattress stores called "mattress firm", they are selling high end mattresses for a few grand, the stores are always empty, there are way too many locations, I have never heard of someone buying a mattress from this store, they have declared bankruptcy but still keep their stores open.

They are either laundering money or some sort of front for other illegal activity. I welcome any and all conspiracy theories on Mattress Firm.

I would love to see Alex Jones rant about this for 20 minutes, he will probably link it to Sandy Hook, 9/11 and whatever else tickles his fancy

Mattresses are a high margin industry, so they don't need to sell many to turn a profit. I'd like to hear from a sales rep though.

Mattress firm closing stores amid rapid expansion, losing billions.

Quote:Mattress Firm, which has been grappling with declining sales after an acquisition spree gone bad and a scandal at its parent company, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Friday.
The nation's largest mattress retailer has been ailing amid a surge of bed-in-a-box online retailers, too many physical stores and an accounting mess at conglomerate owner Steinhoff International.
Houston-based Mattress Firm plans to close as many as 700 of its 3,230 company-owned stores. Those stores are located "in certain markets where we have too many locations in close proximity to each other," CEO Steve Stagner said in a statement.
More than 200 stores will close within days. (See the full list here.) The company has nearly 10,000 employees and another 125 franchised locations.
"We intend to use the additional liquidity from these actions to improve our product offering, provide greater value to our customers, open new stores in new markets, and strategically expand in existing markets where we see the greatest opportunities to serve our customers," Stagner said. The company declined to make Stagner available for an interview.

RE: Off topic conspiracy theory,(but a good one). Mattress firm
People only buy mattresses once every 7-8 years. They have many stores in the hope that when you do need one, a store is right down the street from you, that's why there's so many of them. Doesn't take much to run a store. One maybe two sales people + rent in $$

David took his men with him and went out and killed two hundred Philistines and brought back their foreskins. They counted out the full number to the king so that David might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage. 1 Samuel 18:27

The only valid angle I see is that Steinhoff bought the company to hide assets from the South African government.

Overall, it reminds me of the theory that Outback Steakhouses intentionally positioned its restaurants around large metropolitan areas to form giant pentagrams.

RE: Off topic conspiracy theory,(but a good one). Mattress firm
Its a good business in the sense its relatively safe from amazon taking over. People want to sit or lay down on a mattress when they buy it. That said, the economics of this particular business going on an expansion spree is odd considering its not exactly a growth business despite having a decent moat.

The Cocaine Import Agency needs to open up Los Pollos Chicken to divert their transportation needs from mattresses to chicken:

[Image: getty_660714144_367260.jpg]

The perfect cover is to name it Los Pollos and use the same logo and design.

"They wouldn't use...." They would - why not - most people think that the CIA is about catching Russian and Chinese spies.

If too many business articles come out then they will have to sell more mattrasses - best to some government agencies to show actual profits or they will have to close that business in order to open up another one.

Where did you get that screencap. It is not accurate as I just checked that website.

There was no mistake...Clearly the Mattress Lobby is monitoring the internet to see who has knowledge of their insidious activities with their NSA-caliber monitoring equipment. They've changed the website so throw people off their trail.

I'm sure this thread, and perhaps everyone posting in it, will disappear too....

RE: Off topic conspiracy theory,(but a good one). Mattress firm
I and my family bought a couple of mattresses over the past few years from them. I think that their problem is more likely that they over extended, and correct me if I am wrong bought out another company without doing their due diligence. There are better ways to launder money than selling Mattresses. You generally need a cash business, and selling mattresses now a days is a plastic business.

Don't buy a mattress at a store, starve the beast by using this datasheet:

Free mattress minidatasheet:

1) Buy a mattress from amazon.com. Ideally a memory-foam mattress. Find one that you really like.

2) Initiate a return a few days after receipt of the mattress.

3) Amazon will refund you the full price and you won't have to return the item(memory foam mattresses are shipped highly compressed in a shrinkwrap-like wrapping; there's no way for you un-inflate it and put it back in the original box).

Nice wheels Billy, that's a 1971-72 Alfa GT Veloce he's pulling up in.

Got to hand it to Gates, he's got good taste in cars. A nouveau riche idiot millionaire rapper/celbrity would have been driving a new blingy SUV or an overpriced supercar monstrosity, not a vintage Italian beauty like his Alfa GT.

Probably to pass the law that you have to buy one of their fire-retardant mattresses that's coated in poison.

100% serious.

First time I ordered an incorrect mattress and requested a return since it was too short. Amazon refunded me in full and said I could keep it/figure out how to recycle it.

I've done the ol' mattress refund twice since then for friends who didn't have Prime and wanted nice memory foam mattresses.

Not sure how many times one person can pull it off before Amazon gets suspicious though.

RE: Off topic conspiracy theory,(but a good one). Mattress firm
I'll add fuel to the mattress fire.

The particular city I lived in, in Canada had a store called something like "surplus mattress warehouse" it was a strange place, most of the employees also worked as bouncers at local bars. Fast forward a few years to a motorcycle gang turf war in which the new rival gang came into town and won out. The bars where these 'bouncers' worked at all changed names, the bouncers 'vanished' and the 'surplus mattress warehouse' also changed names and employees. The new employees of the mattress store were the new bouncers at the new bars, who also could be seen around town wearing their Gang apparel.

We all know why organized crime runs bars, but why would they own a mattress store?
