No one size fits all when it comes to finding the perfect sleep experience for customers and that’s why at Bensons for Beds we put Sleep Wellness™ at the heart of everything we do. With nearly 70 years of retail and 100 years of manufacturing experience in sourcing the best quality beds, frames and mattresses, at Bensons we understand how to design the perfect, tailored sleep experience.

We have 190+ locations and employ c 1800 colleagues. Under new ownership of Alteri Group we have an ambitious 3-year plan to grow the business further and achieve our mission of becoming the market leading bed retailer with a strong omnichannel presence.

Our business is made up of 4 main areas. Our retail stores provide nationwide coverage, our very own manufacturing site in Cambridgeshire make our quality products, and our Logistics team who store and deliver those products right to our customers’ homes. These operational business areas are all supported by our team of professionals and specialists across a wide range of support functions, ensuring our business is in great shape to serve our customers.

Sleep is an essential part of everyone’s day, which is why every customer visiting a Bensons store is offered a complimentary sleepPRO™ assessment, allowing them to choose a comfort level that is right for them. Mattresses are rated one to five in terms of firmness, with five being the most firm. sleepPRO’s unique technology helps to match customers with their ideal mattress, so they get a perfect night’s sleep, every night.

What’s more, Bensons has a highly skilled buying team that try, test and source the very best beds, mattresses, headboards, pillows, accessories and bedroom furniture for its customers. Our collection of products includes brands such as Slumberland, Sensaform, iGel, Staples, Silentnight and Sealy.

We are also fully committed to our sustainability journey, being kinder to the environment with every new product from product materials to production.

Bensons is a proud supplier of Silentnight’s new eco range of mattresses, which contain eco comfort fibres made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Bensons is also set to incorporate more chemical treatment-free fabrics and new filings, produced using less CO2, water, and land use, into its new ranges this year and has become a supporter of the British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Climate Action Roadmap, committing to be Net Zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of the government target..

In addition, Bensons customers also have the chance to recycle their old beds and mattresses via a dedicated service, where they can have their old products taken away on delivery of their new bed. Since the recycling scheme began, Bensons has saved the equivalent of over 4,000 tonnes of mattresses from going into landfill with much more to come on this journey.

Bensons is proud to have been awarded the BSI Kitemark across a range of products, demonstrating the highest possible quality standards, and has a dedicated manufacturing site based in Huntingdon. All mattresses are guaranteed for a minimum of five years.

It is all of this that really sets us apart in the marketplace.
HQ is based in Accrington, Lancashire.

Our business consists of our retail stores, our manufacturing site and our logistics (warehousing and distribution) centres plus our support team to ensure we're in great shape to serve our customers.
