A California mattress retailer with about 300 stores has arranged to buy nine America's Mattress stores in Hawaii.
Sacramento, Calif.-based Sleep Train announced the purchase agreement Wednesday. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. The sale is expected to close April 23.
The Hawaii stores being bought include five on Oahu, two on Hawaii island and one each on Maui and Kauai.
