It hasn't been announced yet which stores will be closing, but it says that those closing down will happen "where we have too many locations in close proximity to each other."

Twin Cities suburbs where Mattress Firms has stores close to each other include Eden Prairie, Maple Grove, Roseville and Apple Valley. Mattress Firm is telling customers to check this page for future announcements.
