The Marlton, New Jersey-based Sheex, Inc., a company specializing in fabric bedding, sleepwear, sheets, pillows, and mattresses, has announced plans to build fifty new stores nationally.
Launched just over a decade ago by University of Tennessee basketball star Michelle Marciniak and Susan Walvius, a former head coach at the University of South Carolina, Sheex has seen its products placed in nearly 1,000 retail stores nationally.
Earlier this month, the company announced it was opening its own 1,700 square-foot store in the King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania.
Primarily selling its goods via direct television marketing, the company has enjoyed an increase in revenue of around 200 percent since early 2018.
“The key for us now is to build out these retail stores,” Marciniak recently told the Morning Call newspaper. “We have a five-year plan to build as many as 50 retail stores across America.”
The first stores are expected to open in 2020.
Where the new Sheex outlets will be built, and whether they will open in existing mall spaces or as new stand-alone stores, has not yet been announced.
