SLUMBERLAND FURNITURE TO JOIN THE LEVEE DISTRICT AS ANCHOR TENANT
(East Peoria, IL – February 23, 2021) – Cullinan Properties announces that Slumberland Furniture will open its first area location in the former Gordmans space at The Levee District this spring. The premier regional furniture retailer will backfill the 50,221 SF space between Lane Bryant and Carpet Weaver’s Flooring & Furniture Gallery.
Slumberland Furniture has a wide-ranging product line including a large selection of mattresses and bedding, living room furniture, recliners, tables and dining sets, bedroom furniture, home entertainment, desks, décor and more. Their mattress brands include Tempur-Pedic, Sealy Posturepedic, Stearns & Foster and Slumbercrest. They are America’s largest seller of La-Z-Boy products, and specialize in power lift chairs to help seniors and those with special seating needs.
Slumberland’s mission is to improve the life of each customer and strengthen the communities they serve by providing personalized sleep and home furnishings in a positive shopping experience with incredible value to the customer, with a commitment to community giving. The company gives back through their 40 Winks Foundation, which provides new beds to children who would otherwise be sleeping on the floor.
“Cullinan is pleased to welcome Slumberland as an anchor tenant to The Levee District,” stated Sean Garrett, President of Acquisitions and Director of Community Relations for Cullinan Properties, Ltd. “This leading retailer will greatly complement Target, Carpet Weaver’s and our other existing tenants by continuing to position The Levee District and the Peoria area as a regional draw and one-stop destination for home furnishings.”
“We are thrilled to announce our expansion into Peoria. Slumberland Furniture has a rich history across the Midwest of providing stylish, comfortable furniture at incredible prices, and of course our unique mattress and sleep expertise. We can’t wait to show shoppers in the area how they can get their look for less at Slumberland, solve their sleep problems, and so much more,” commented Sheila Erickson, Vice President of Marketing for Slumberland.
“We are proud to partner with Cullinan Properties on another retail project,” stated Michael P. Larson, Director of Real Estate for Slumberland. “We have explored adding a store in the greater Peoria market for many years and never were able to find a location we were very excited about. From the moment we saw The Levee District we knew it would be a home run. Great location, great mix of tenants, and we believe it will be the perfect location for Slumberland Furniture to serve the community,” stated Larson.
