Mattress Firm opens first Tucson store
CB Richard Ellis has negotiated a 6,107-square-foot lease at Oracle Village, a neighborhood retail center located on the southeast corner of Oracle and Roger roads. Specialty bedding retailer Mattress Firm has opened its first store in the Tucson area.
Nancy McClure of CBRE’s Tucson office represented the landlord, Machado Family Properties of Leucadia, Calif., in negotiating the long-term lease. The tenant, Houston-based Mattress Firm Inc., was represented by Darren Pitts of Velocity Retail in Phoenix. The exact terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Located at 3976 N. Oracle Road, the space was previously occupied by Blockbuster Video.
“The departure of Blockbuster Video from this and other markets around the country has created opportunities for new and expanding retailers to secure space in prime retail hubs that otherwise would not be available,” said McClure.
Mattress Firm has plans for other stores in Tucson and is working on securing other high-visibility sites around the city.
