May 29, 2008 // Franchising.com // NAPLES, Fla. - Furniture/Today, a weekly home furnishings newspaper, has named Verlo Mattress Factory Stores as a Retail Giant of Bedding. The award honors Verlo for overall excellence in mattress retailing.

The other honorees were R.C. Willey of Salt Lake City, Utah, part of the Berkshire Hathaway furniture division; the Ashley Furniture HomeStores, Arcadia, Wis.; and Sleep America, a bedding specialist in Phoenix.

Tributes to each of those retailers were presented at a gala awards dinner on May 15 that was a highlight of Furniture/Today's third annual Bedding Conference. The conference was held May 14-16 at the Ritz-Carlton golf resort here.

"Verlo Mattress Factory Stores has found a path to success in the highly competitive mattress industry," said David Perry, Furniture/Today's bedding editor, who presented the awards.
