Mattress Warehouse on July 19 opened its 152nd store in the same city where it opened its first one nearly 30 years ago — South Charleston.

The new store is in River Walk Mall and is 40 percent larger than the nearby store that closed in March.

Mattress Warehouse is part of Innovative Mattress Solutions (iMS), which has its headquarters in Winfield. iMS also operates Sleep Outfitters and Mattress King in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and Alabama.

Recently the company was recognized by the trade publication Furniture/Today as the nation's eighth largest bedding retailer and 61st largest furniture store.
