Mattress Shops Like Bedmax Are Driving Down the Price of Mattresses which means Savings for Customer

Are smaller merchants partnering with smaller-sized manufacturers creating a large savings for clients while affecting the earnings of the four large manufacturers Tempur-Pedic, Serta, Simmons and Sealy?

 
PRLog - Jul. 20, 2012 - OLATHE, Kan. -- Olathe, Kansas-July 18, 2012--Enhanced levels of competition not just in the United States but globally might be the cause of the 75% drop in worth of Tempur-pedic stock.  Smaller merchants are negotiating aggressive agreements with smaller-sized producers to drastically impact the "Big Four's" bottom line.  It's a new day for the mattress industry.  With aggressive rivals coming in, Tempur-Pedic and other large names cannot afford to be sleepy.  And their margins might possibly never be the same again (MSN 6/6/2012).
