Message from Beds R Us Support Office

Dear Future Members,

We are excited to introduce the Beds R Us exclusive membership opportunity. The group has experienced amazing growth in the past few years, with new stores opening in Ballarat, Portland, Sydney and Brisbane along with record mattress sales in 2020.

Beds R Us is now looking for more members to join the network across Australia, natural leaders who can take charge and add their own personal flair to the business.

What do the coming months and years hold?

We are launching several initiatives to support growth, including;

  • Innovating the retail experience such as the introduction of smaller retail formats to offer inner-city presence.
  • Improved supply and product quality. Contributing to the product design and development of Australia’s largest mattress manufacturer, Sleepyhead/SleepMasker.
  • Digital marketing investments—increased online exposure with a reinvigorated content strategy and message.

With more than 120 sites in Australia and New Zealand, the Beds R Us brand is the largest independent bedding furniture retailer in Australasia. Our team has over 30 years of industry experience. And our support network provides friendly, professional and expert service.

We look forward to learning about your business experience and demonstrating the unique benefits of joining our network.

Sincerely,

Kevin Hill

We are committed to the success of our members. We invest product rebates and brand fees into national and local area marketing activities.  Annually, there are over 12 marketing campaigns provided with assets for stores to use. We use national advertising budgets at least 6 times a year to reach consumers through digital advertising, broadcast video on demand and free-to-air television.

As a members network, everyone has a say. Our advertising committee develops local activities to support national campaigns. You have an opportunity to champion initiatives in your area and drive performance.

Content for local activations is available on the Beds R Us Members’ Site and is updated frequently. To ensure your store is found online we provide members with a dedicated landing page on the Beds R Us
website.

With over 75,000 visitors a month, we continually invest and improve our online footprint. In 2020 we improved the product tagging on our website to create a tool that focuses on customer needs and benefits to help them find the right mattress. See bedsrus.com.au/mattresses

Being part of our network means that you will have all the tools necessary to build brand awareness and grow sales.

Best of all we are able to state that 100% of the mattresses on our website are Australian Made! Not many bedding retailers can say that.
