The Fresno-based purveyor of mattresses, pillows, sheets and more is planning a tentative September opening at 528 Anacapa St., Suite B, according to the developer.
Sleep Fit Corporation President James Smith said the company has expanded as of late to include 25 SleepFit/ Mattress Land brand stores in Central California, Nevada, Idaho and Washington. San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria recently opened stores that offer a BedFit system customizing mattresses and pillows for support needs.
He said the company designs and builds its own branded products, as well as providing choices from top mattress manufactures in the industry.
“One thing that separates SleepFit from the normal furniture and mattress store chains is all our suppliers are required to submit their mattresses to our extensive BedFit process before they can be offered on display,” Smith said. “We currently operate SleepFit / Mattress Land stores in Atascadero, San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, and we are excited to open our new Santa Barbra location in the coming months.”
