‘SleePare’ Online Bedding Purveyor Joins Bowery Lighting District

Posted on: June 6th, 2018 at 5:09 am by

Down in the Bowery lighting district, this store has gone to sleep.

Online mattress retailer SleePare counts 166 Bowery as its brick-and-mortar outpost. It’s the second bedding shop within two blocks, behind organic mattress showroom Nest, and is now operational.

SleePare apparently designed “state of the art software” with “machine learning” that compares customer preferences – based on a questionnaire – to review data from other websites to recommend its products. Their sleep offerings include mattresses, pillows, and sheets.

As previously reported, 166 Bowery was last home to Oggi Lighting. The property and its two neighbors to the south – the trio of gray buildings – together sold last summer for $23.5 million. Investor Ari Zagdanski (Kinsmen Property Group) purchased the assemblage (162-166 Bowery) from the family of David A. Cohen, which had owned the property since the 1970s.
