“Everyone could pay more attention to their sleep,” he said. “The next big area for us is going to be temperature control. We have ideas around smell.”
Casper also has other plans, including opening 200 stores in the next few years. The stores help Casper get his brand in front of new customers and give them a chance to try the mattresses before they buy.
