// Mattress Online sees sales boom with earnings increasing by over 200% year-on-year
// The retailer is planning to open 7 stores over the next three years
After experiencing a boom in sales during the Covid-19 outbreak, Mattress Online has seen its turnover and earnings increase by over 200 per cent in the last year.
During that time, the Rotherham-based retailer’s revenue increased to £34.5 million.
Profits have been re-invested at the retailer, which has increased from 38 to 61 employees in the last year.
Former J2 executive Michael Jervis has been named director of digital, and former Morphy Richards marketing manager Annaliese Curtis has been named head of marketing while Craig Roberts, formerly of Exemplar Health Care, has joined the company as head of finance.
Mattress Online founder and chief executive Steve Adams said: “We are thrilled to have been able to reinvest profits to support the ongoing innovation and future growth of the business.
“These are exciting times for Mattress Online and our team. We’re always looking to the future and how we can add value for customers and everyone in our supply chain – particularly those in Yorkshire.”
Currently operating a traditional showroom store in Rotherham, the retailer is currently planning to open seven stores over the next three years.
“As a company established in 2003, we’ve got a strong infrastructure and supply chain,” Adams said.
“This is helping us expand into bricks and mortar and we are strategically planning to open more stores when many retailers are closing down.
“Physical stores are not dead and I believe Mattress Online can offer the next day delivery and competitive prices you get from our online offering in a more traditional setting.”
