BUCKHANNON — A new business wants to make sure the city of Buckhannon has a restful night’s sleep.

Tuesday’s grand opening for America’s Mattress Buckhannon location marked an expansion of the Elkins America’s Mattress store that has served the public for almost 20 years.

Owner Mark Cross said he saw customers traveling from the Buckhannon area to his Elkins store and made the decision to expand his business into Upshur County.

“I would like to invite everyone to please stop by and see how the technology in mattresses have changed and allow us to show them a more restful night’s sleep,” Cross said.

Cross had been contemplating expanding his America’s Mattress location for more than a year now. He said the new location provides the ideal setting in a high-traffic area with enough space to offer a large display and selection.

The company displays a huge selection of adjustable motion-base mattresses, along with other brands like Serta, iComfort and the exclusive Dr. Green Orthopedic Series.

America’s Mattress is West Virginia’s largest Serta dealer. The America’s Mattress franchise operates more than 400 stores across the nation.

America’s Mattress in Buckhannon is located at 237 South Kanawha Street. For more information, call 304-439-3052.
