#MattressTags: The domino effect

We all fall down

Aaron’s a rent-to-own heavyweight, recently added another title to its credit: Guinness World Record Holder. The Atlanta-based company set the record for the world’s largest human/mattress domino chain, as 1,200 Aaron’s associates (and mattresses) participated during the company’s National Managers Meeting at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, D.C. on March 23. As part of breaking the record, Aaron’s donated all 1,200 mattresses to A Wider Circle, an organization focused on ending individual and family poverty, and to the Sasha Bruce and Wanda Alston youth homeless shelters.

“Breaking a Guinness World Records title has been a great team building event for the 2,000 associates we have attending our National Managers meeting this week,” said Aaron’s CEO John Robinson. “However, the significance of this event is that through the generosity of our manufacturing plant, Woodhaven, and our ACORP stores, we are able to provide 1,200 beds to needy families in the D.C.-area.  Our associates had great fun participating and knowing their efforts support our mission of giving back to our communities.”
