Mattress Online sees sales leap by more than a quarter

Online retailer Mattress Online saw sales jump by more than a quarter in the past year.

Sales rose from £29.9m to £37.5m in the year to 31 May. 

Profits were not disclosed. The company says it is now the largest online independent mattress retailer in the UK.

Profits have been reinvested across the business and the team has swelled from 38 to 61 over the past year.

Steve Adams, Mattress Online ceo and founder says the company had risen to enormous logistical challenges posed by the pandemic. ‘For a company that delivers products directly to customers’ homes, the level of safeguarding, staff training and the internal and external communication during this period has been huge. Our staff have responded in the most fantastic way and I’m incredibly proud of them.

‘We are thrilled to have been able to reinvest profits to support the ongoing innovation and future growth of the business. As a company established in 2003, we’ve got a strong infrastructure and supply chain.

‘This is helping us expand into bricks and mortar and we are strategically planning to open more stores when many retailers are closing down. Physical stores are not dead and I believe Mattress Online can offer the next day delivery and competitive prices you get from our online offering in a more traditional setting.’

Seven stores are planned over the next three years: it currently has a showroom in Rotherham.

‘The UK bed and mattress market is worth £2.2bn. It’s a market that’s still relatively traditional and ripe for disruption and sustainable innovation,’ says Adams.
