TARGET WANTED CASPER MATTRESS…..

Following last week’s news of Casper going into Target stores nationwide, it was reported that Target had offered $1 billion for the online mattress brand.

According to Recode, a technology news website, multiple sources said acquisition talks between the two companies over a few months broke down, and Target will to take a minority stake instead.

Industry insiders believe a new round of funding for the N.Y.-based startup could be announced in the next few weeks, as Casper had been in the process of raising funding when the Target talks began.
