Online mattress seller Casper plans 200 stores in 3 years
Wednesday, 8 August 2018 NEW YORK (AP) — Online mattress seller Casper plans to open 200 stores in the U.S. over the next three years as part of an effort to solidify its position in the retail market. The 4-year-old company has been testing locations by opening 20 stores with short-term leases over the last few years. It opened its first permanent store in Manhattan this year.
