“With 30 existing stores, Phoenix is a market that has room to grow,” said Darren Pitts, Executive Vice President at Velocity Retail. “We are looking for very high profile, street-front locations in regional areas that have a high concentration of existing retail,” he added.
“Velocity Retail Group is among the best in the business,” said Bruce Levy, Senior Vice President of Real Estate & Construction for Mattress Firm. “Darren and the team’s ability to handle multi-store retail site selection strategy is imperative to our growth. We look forward to leveraging their expertise to find billboard locations as we continue our rapid national expansion.”
Dave Cheatham, Managing Principal at Velocity commented that “With the closing of many video store locations and some restaurants, the timing of Mattress Firm’s expansion has been ideal in securing some very high profile locations. We have been able to acquire excellent stores in areas where space has traditionally been very difficult to find.”
