This business has been very profitable from its inception and has allowed us to diversify our business while getting closer to our customer. This is consistent with our approach of being wherever customers want to shop and it certainly strengthens our powerful omni-channel distribution model.

“With thousands of retail partners across the world, third party retail distribution has been, and is expected to continue to be, the backbone of our business. Our broad base omni-channel distribution helps us to deliver on our mission to improve the sleep of more people, every night, all around the world.”
