Rest assured, Rockland’s two Mattress Firm locations have been spared in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing that will close up to 700 stores nationwide. That may still changes as the company continues to close stores. After a major acquisition in recent years, the chain has 3.230 company-owned stores and another 125 franchised locations. It has nearly 10,000 employees. The two Rockland stores, about a half mile apart on Route 59, are company-owned stores. The company is closing ten stores in New York and New Jersey.
The company says it will stay in business, despite significant challenges, including sales declines and competition from bed-in-a-box online sellers such as Casper and Leesa. The nation’s largest mattress retailer said in a court filing it will not conduct typical liquidation sale. Instead it wil transfer mattresses to other stores, warehouses or distribution centers.
