“I’m extremely proud of opening a store in our 50th state—it’s a significant milestone for our brand, especially amidst a challenging retail environment,” said Andy Carlin, chief sales and service officer for Sleep Number. “With our smart, effortless sleep technology, we are improving our customers’ well-being by redefining quality sleep.”

The 3,600-square-foot store opened Dec. 8, 2017, in Kapolei, the second-largest city after Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. It employs four sleep experts and two home-delivery technicians. Before officially opening its doors, Sleep Number hosted a traditional Hawaiian blessing, which honors local culture and helps usher in goodness, success and growth to the store.
