NatureWorks to hit retail shelves
June 10, 2002,
Seattle — Pacific Coast Feather will kick-off the retail launch of its exclusive NatureWorks fiber bedding program with events beginning this month at Bed Bath & Beyond and Younkers.
Earlier this year, Pacific Coast introduced pillows, mattress pads, comforters and fiber beds filled with NatureWorks, a new general fiber called PLA, which is created from corn, an annually renewable resource. The launch later this week and next week at the two retailers will mark the first time consumers will see the products at retail. Each of the product categories uses the NatureWorks fiberfill with a premium natural all-cotton cover.
For each retailer, the NatureWorks product will be featured as a family, rather that separated by category within the store, Lopez-Walters explained.
Both Bed Bath & Beyond and Younkers will have dedicated point-of-sale elements including bin toppers, banners and packaging in a eye-catching orange and green color combination.
In addition, Bed Bath & Beyond, which will market the program under the name Natural Balance will have a blow-in card in its July book that will have a circulation of about 10 million, Lopez-Walters said.
At Younkers, where the program will be marketed under the name Generations Bedding Co., additional marketing elements will include an insert in Sunday newspapers in August, a pillow giveaway, and both billboards and radio ads in Des Moines,IA.
