Do Either of These Phrases Sound Familiar?
“You’re Killing Me Larry!” ... or … “We’ll Beat Any Competitors Advertised Price Or Your Mattress is Freee!!!”
If you live in Southern California, chances are you’ve heard about Sit ‘n Sleep. Our tag lines — love ‘em or hate ‘em — are hard to escape!
Yet, our humorous advertising is merely a small part of a company that’s been serving sleepers in the Southland for over 35 years.
One of the Country’s Largest and Most Respected Mattress Retailers
During the last three decades, Sit ‘n Sleep has grown to become one of the largest mattress retailers in the United States, selling more mattresses per store than any other retailer in the country. Sit ‘n Sleep is comprised of 32 superstore locations (and counting) throughout Southern California and a 240,000 square foot distribution center and corporate office space in Gardena, CA employing close to 300 people.
Mission and Goals
Sit ‘n Sleep is focused on helping people find the right mattress for their needs, body type and health — all from the largest selection of mattresses, at the best price — while receiving the friendliest and most knowledgeable service in the country. While Sit n’ Sleep’s main goal is delivering a great night’s sleep to millions of Californians; the company also seeks to educate the public about how important a great night’s sleep is to a person’s overall health.
Sit ‘n Sleep Employs Highly-Trained Sleep Consultants
Deep, refreshing and comfortable sleep is a major factor in determining a person’s general well-being and quality of life. This is why Sit ‘n Sleep goes to great lengths to provide its customers with a sales staff of professional sleep consultants with hundreds of hours of professional training. Sit ‘n Sleep associates are not only mattress experts: Their extensive training and their understanding of how a mattress impacts sleep health has made them “sleep experts.” Each and every Sit ‘n Sleep sleep consultant undergoes months of sleep health education and customer service training while visiting the factories of numerous top mattress manufacturers. Sit ‘n Sleep sleep consultants receive continuing sleep health education and training on an ongoing basis.
Sit ‘n Sleep in the Community
Larry Miller and Nelson Bercier, principals of Sit ‘n Sleep, were the 2006 Honorees of the Home Furnishings Association chapter from the City of Hope. Together with vendor and advertising partners, they helped raise over one million dollars to help the City of Hope fight cancer and give assistance to the families of cancer patients. The employees of Sit ‘n Sleep participate annually in the Lee National Denim Day event in October, raising both money and awareness for breast cancer. The Sit ‘n Sleep-Phil Miller Foundation has awarded scholarships annually to graduating high school seniors residing in communities in which Sit ‘n Sleep operates stores. For several years, Sit ‘n Sleep employees, vendors and advertising partners have volunteered during the MDA Labor Day telethon and have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars towards the fight against muscular dystrophy.
