Mattress retail store Sleepy’s opens in CL

CRYSTAL LAKE – East Coast mattress retailer Sleepy’s recently opened 10 stores in the Chicago area, including one in Crystal Lake, as it expands into the midwest market for the first time.

Sleepy’s opened last week at 4801 Route 14, in the shopping center that also contains Men’s Wearhouse, Outback Steakhouse and Chuck E. Cheese’s. The 9,000-square-foot Crystal Lake store will have four to five employees, said Sam Khan, Sleepy’s regional vice president.

“Crystal Lake is a growing area and a great shopping area,” he said. “We’re excited to be a part of the community.”

The chain also opened stores in Des Plaines, Bannockburn, Batavia, Glenview, Bolingbrook, Evergreen Park, and Chicago. It’s flagship store is at 5300 N. Broadway in Chicago.

Sleepy’s is a privately-owned, fourth-generation company with more 900 retail stores. The company is entering new markets in the Chicago area and investing millions in marketing and advertising, officials said.

Initially, the company will fill about 150 positions in sales, management, delivery and warehousing. Khan said more stores are planned to follow the first 10, which opened June 28.
