In 1981, P.M. Sleep Center was founded in Eau Claire, WI by Pat and Mike Bloss. Thus, the initials, P.M. Before opening P.M. Sleep Center, Mike spent ten years in all phases of the mattress business including retailing, manufacturing, mattress design, and distribution.
By the early 1980s, the waterbed business was between 30-40% of the sleep products industries. Pat and Mike opened P.M. Waterbeds in Eau Claire, WI. P.M. Waterbeds had stores in Duluth, MN, Winona, MN and was affiliated with stores in La Crosse, Milwaukee, and the Twin Cities.
By the early 1990s, the waterbed business was oversaturated (no pun intended) and waning. Pat and Mike decided to rename the store to P.M. Sleep Center.
P.M. Sleep Center evolved into one of western Wisconsin’s major mattress dealers. During the 1990s P.M. Sleep Center specialized in mid-quality to high-end sleep products. We carried handcrafted bedroom furniture made right here in Wisconsin.
In 2008, P.M. Sleep Center purchased a 40,000 square foot building on Eau Claire’s south-west side. We divided the building into four retail outlets with P.M. Sleep Center occupying 32,000 square feet.
Today P.M. Sleep Center & Furniture Gallery is the areas only major, locally owned and non-franchised furniture and mattress store. We feature Sealy, Simmons, Stearns and Foster, Tempur-Pedic, and Dreams Collection mattresses. In our store, you will also find large Flexsteel and England Furniture galleries, a large selection of chairs, rugs, and home décor accessories. P.M. Sleep Center & Furniture Gallery still carries top quality handcrafted bedroom and dining room furniture. Most of our wood products are made in Wisconsin, some by Amish craftsmen.
