Sealy® Announces Black Friday Promotion For Optimum™ Line

TRINITY, N.C., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sealy, Inc. (NYSE: ZZ), the largest bedding manufacturer in the world, has announced a Black Friday promotion in order to draw customers to retail stores on one of America's busiest shopping days.

According to the National Retail Federation, a record 226 million shoppers visited stores and websites over the Black Friday weekend in 2011, spending an estimated $52.4 billion.  This year, the organization predicts national holiday retail sales in November and December will increase 4.1 percent. To capitalize on this excitement, and continue the momentum on its successful Optimum™ line, Sealy will offer consumers a free box spring with the purchase of a new Optimum TM mattress from November 12–26.

"Black Friday symbolizes the start of the holiday shopping season," said Jodi Allen, chief marketing officer, Sealy.  "With our strategically-timed promotion, we hope to build on the excitement surrounding the holidays to encourage consumers to visit one of our retail partners and try out one of our newest, most innovative mattresses."

The Black Friday promotion is a continuation of the company's 2012 advertising and promotional program, which consists of its largest advertising spend in five years, including an unprecedented national TV campaign, digital buy and in-store programs.
