Connecticut 1-800-Mattress Service Unaffected

By Legal Action Involving Parent Company

 

March 19, 2009 - Rectangle Corporation, which operates the Connecticut franchise of 1-800-Mattress, said today that as an independent franchise group, its operations were completely unaffected by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court filings involving it’s franchisor and that it is operating as “business as usual.”

 

“We are a completely separate company with a healthy balance sheet, a warehouse full of inventory, and our own reputation for superior quality, service and value to our customers,” said President Stephen Perry. “Our business is unaffected by the action against the franchisor in New York. We are not involved in any way and it is business as usual for us and for our customers, who will see no impact whatsoever from this news.”

 

Perry said his company has separate contracts with Sealy, Serta, Simmons, KingKoil/Comfort Solutions and TempurPedic, is current with all payments, and operates its own fleet of trucks for delivery, its own warehouse in Windsor and retail showrooms in Stamford and Fairfield. The company will continue to fulfill orders placed through www.mattress.com.

 

“There is no impact whatsoever on our operations or our ability to purchase product, make sales and deliver to our customers. Other than using the 1-800-Mattress name, we are a separate and independent company,” he added.

 

Perry, a veteran of the mattress industry, purchased the Connecticut franchise last year and has been steadily growing marketshare in the region.
