The tragic wildfires that raged through Northern California’s wine country in October were responsible for over 40 deaths and caused roughly $3 billion in damages, making it one of the most costly fires in the state’s history. Now, with the survivors face the daunting task of putting their lives back together, one retailer wants to help them at least try to get some rest.
Living Spaces, a retailer with locations throughout California and the West, is offering wildfire survivors a way to get some rest. The company announced that they’ll be giving a free Emily mattress set in any size to anyone with a FEMA or insurance letter that comes into the store on or before December 31, 2017. There are three stores and one distribution center located in Northern California at which the offer can be redeemed.
“We here at Living Spaces want to help you start putting your life back together,” CEO Grover Geiselman said in a video announcement. “After all that you’ve been through, you could probably use a good night’s sleep.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a retailer step up during this recent wave of natural disasters. During Hurricane Harvey, Houston mattress store Gallery Furniture opened up its two area locations as official shelters for flood victims. And more recently, it was revealed that TJX is continuing to pay its Puerto Rican HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls employees, despite stores not being open.
