Casper is making a stop in Phoenix this weekend as part of its West Coast Nap Tour.
    
Casper (casper.com) is a sleep brand that launched in 2014 with one perfect mattress sold directly to consumers eliminating commission-driven, inflated prices. Its award-winning sleep surface was developed in-house, has a sleek design, and is delivered in a small, "how did they do that?" sized box. A year and a half after launching the mattress, Casper expanded its universally comfortable product line, which now includes a perfect pillow and sheets.

Casper is bringing free naps to Phoenix. With the company's singular goal of improving sleep, the startup is providing a brief respite in a chaotic world for overworked, under slept, or just plain curious locals.

The Nap Mobile is composed of four Japanese-style napping pods outfitted with Casper mattresses, sheets and pillows.

You can book a 30 minute nap in advance at www.casper.com/naptour and walk-ins are welcome too.  

March 3
Diablo Stadium (200 W Alameda Drive, Tempe)
Noon to 8PM

March 5th and 6th
Litchfield Art & Culinary Festival (300 W. Wigwam Blvd, Litchfield Park)
Noon to 8PM
