FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As one of the world’s fastest growing companies, Leesa brings its beautifully designed and carefully crafted mattress, easy online shopping experience, 100-night risk-free trial and industry-leading social impact program to Canadian residents
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Feb. 1, 2016 – Leesa is excited to introduce its high-end, direct-ship mattress and its industry-leading social impact program, dubbed Leesa One-Ten, to all Canadian provinces and territories. After achieving nearly $30M in sales in the U.S. and U.K. and donating more than 3,000 mattresses to shelters last year, Leesa continues its international expansion as it moves into Canada.
“We’ve had a close connection to Canada since we chose Ottawa-based Shopify as our e-commerce platform and became one of the fastest growing companies on Shopify in 2015,” said Leesa co-founder and Chief Executive Officer David Wolfe. “But more importantly, news of how comfortable our mattress is has reached Canada and we’re often asked whether we ship there. I’m delighted to say the answer is now a resounding ‘yes.’”
Leesa was named one of Forbes’ 20 Startups to Watch in 2016 and was also recognized as one of the world’s fastest growing companies with its win in Shopify’s prestigious Build a Business Competition, earning mentorship from renowned entrepreneurs Daymond John, Tim Ferriss and Sir Richard Branson.
“Leesa continues to be a standout in the mattress startup space, and I have no doubt they’ll take the Canadian mattress industry by storm like they have in the U.S.,” said Harley Finkelstein, Shopify COO. “In just over a year, I’ve seen them launch their store through Shopify’s Build a Business competition and go on to push mattress technology and the industry to new heights.”
The award-winning mattress company brings Canadians a new way to shop for a better night’s sleep by offering consumers:
- A Better Design. All Leesa mattresses are beautifully designed and carefully crafted to meet the needs of almost every body.
- Exclusively Online. With free shipping and a 100-night risk-free trial, the Leesa mattress ships compressed in a box directly to your door.
- Affordable Luxury. As one of the top-reviewed mattresses in its category, the incredibly comfortable Leesa mattress is composed of three layers of premium foam that delivers a cooling bounce, contouring pressure relief and core support for a third of the price of mattresses bought in-store.
- Industry Leading Social Impact. Leesa has set the standard for social responsibility in the mattress industry with its Leesa One-Ten and One-Earth programs. Leesa makes custom mattresses for shelters in support of its commitment to donate one mattress for every ten sold, and they also plant one tree for every mattress sold.
To celebrate the launch, Leesa will offer all Canadian residents $150 CAD off throughout the month of February.
