Kent Thompson, president of Thompson Realty Group in Lincoln, confirmed Thursday that the Mattress Firm store at 5001 O St. has closed its doors.
Mattress Firm, the country’s largest specialty mattress retailer, declared bankruptcy last Friday and said at the time it planned to close 700 stores. It initially identified only 200 of them and said it was seeking court approval to close the others.
The company said at the time that it was looking to close stores in markets where it has “too many locations in close proximity to each other.”
The store at 5001 O St. was only about a mile away from another location at 6203 O St. Mattress Firm has one other Lincoln store at 4740 N. 27th St.
A store in Papillion will also close.
