Mattress Firm store in Oceanside has closed amid bankruptcy filing

A newly closed Mattress Firm store in Oceanside is among 99 locations in the retailer’s second round of closures as part of its bankruptcy protection filing.

The 4,000-square-foot store, which was once a Sleepy’s — the Hicksville-based mattress retail chain was acquired for $780 million by Mattress Firm two years ago — was located on 3150 Long Beach Rd. The property is owned by United Properties Corp. in East Meadows.

A public relations representative for Mattress Firm, when contacted about the closing of the Oceanside store, didn’t provide updated information.

Houston-based Mattress Firm filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in federal court in Delaware on Sept. 28, citing market saturation and competition from online mattress retailers, among other factors.
