Dial-a-Mattress, 1-800-Mattress File For Bankruptcy Protection

By Tiffany Kary

March 24 (Bloomberg) -- Dial-a-Mattress and its brand-name retailer 1-800-Mattress filed for bankruptcy court protection after creditors tried to force it into court protection last week.

The petitions for Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, yesterday both listed under $50,000 in debt and assets. The New York City-based company had faced involuntary bankruptcy after Sealy Corp., the world’s biggest bedding maker, and two other companies owed a total of $1.65 million filed a Chapter 7 petition against it March 17.
