“As a result of initiatives we recently put in place combined with the early benefits we are experiencing from a renewed commitment of manufacturer advertising spend, we successfully drove traffic and comparable store sales growth in our third fiscal quarter,” stated Steve Stagner, Mattress Firm’s president and chief executive officer. “We implemented a number of sales initiatives during the quarter that encouraged our sales associates to improve their productivity and capture a higher percentage of sales from customers. While these initiatives resulted in an anticipated reduction in margins, we experienced a positive momentum shift in comparable store sales toward the end of the quarter that has continued into our fourth quarter. Furthermore, our strong pace of organic growth continued as we added 40 new stores to our base this quarter. We remain focused on our strategy of driving continued sales growth and building relative market share.”
