Slumberland is a privately held company with more than 50 years experience in the furniture industry, and over 40 years of franchising experience. Since first opening as a mattress specialty shop in 1967, we have expanded our product mix and grown to 50+ corporate and 70+ franchise stores across 12 states. We enjoy a strong brand position in the US furniture industry. Slumberland holds the largest combined market in share in the Central and Midwest United States and is the region’s premier home furnishing retailer.
It's a Good Life
Slumberland’s mission is to improve the life of each customer through a positive shopping experience, affordable furniture options, and a commitment to community giving. Our brand statement, “It’s a good life,” reflects our belief that furniture is more than a place to sit or sleep; it’s the sofa where the family gathers, the dining table that inspires conversation, or the bedroom where you recharge for tomorrow’s adventure. In short, it’s what turns a house into a comfortable home, where life’s simple joys can be celebrated every day.

Our product line includes a wide selection of mattresses from promotional to premium, living room furniture including sofas, reclining furniture, tables and accessories, master bedroom furniture, dining sets, home office pieces and home entertainment consoles.
I love being part of a bigger family of stores creating top-notch designs, more buying power, the best prices, faster shipping, and more to give back to the community! A SLUMBERLAND FAMILY!- Yankton, SD
Merchandise and Marketing Strategies
No other regional furniture retailer has achieved our level of market penetration. Our merchandising program offers franchisees a clearly defined strategy focused on fast-turning products at competitive price points offering the best style, value and quality. We distribute furniture to our stores through two regional distribution centers (Baraboo, WI; and Beresford, SD), which allows us to ship multiple truckloads to stores many times a week to meet merchandise needs and to mitigate large backroom inventory levels.
Slumberland Furniture’s marketing philosophy combines convenient, high profile locations with name brand merchandise, high-impact advertising, and a value-added approach to the customer. All advertising is designed and distributed by our in-house creative and media teams, in collaboration with key trusted partners. Slumberland is a dominant advertiser and strives to be #1 in top-of-mind-awareness for home furnishings by offering at least 75 unique TV spots each year, 30+ newspaper circulars per year, monthly direct mail promotions and targeted specialty mailers, and a full-scale, integrated digital marketing and social media strategy.
