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.

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 three regional distribution centers (St. Paul, MN; 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 produced in-house by our award-winning creative and production team. Slumberland is a dominant advertiser and striving to be #1 in top-of-mind-awareness for home furnishings by offering at least 75 unique TV spots each year, 52+ newspaper circulars per year, monthly direct mail offers and targeted specialty mailers, and a full-scale, integrated digital marketing and social media strategy.
