In a world where quality sleep is a luxury, The Sleep Company has been redefining rest through innovation and science-backed solutions. Born from a new mother's realization of the importance of good sleep, The Sleep Company has crafted the world's most comfortable mattresses, expanding its product line to include adaptable beds, comfy chairs, and reliable cushions. After collaborating with Xpert to optimize digital ad spends through its precision audiences, the brand decided to leverage Xpert's location intelligence for offline store expansion & retail strategy.
Approaches to store location decisions have traditionally relied on intuition or generalized macroscopic data. The Sleep Company recognized the need for a more definitive data-centric approach to avoid mismatches between store locations and their consumer base - like opening your store in a city’s newest hotspot but later realizing that most of your target customers live miles away at the opposite end. Or selling Baby & Toddler products, with your store in an area being increasingly populated by students and single working professionals.
