The company has struggled with competitors as well as expansion, cannibalizing sales at its own stores. Mattress Firm bought Sleepy’s in 2016 and Mattress Giant in 2012, with many stores near one another.
Steinhold International, the South African-based retail conglomerate that owns Mattress Firm, will provide financing of the restructuring, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The struggling company was caught in an accounting scandal in December and its CEO resigned, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company reached a deal with its creditors in July to suspend payments on its debt for three years.
