There's much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There's plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in Goose Creek, SC. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.
This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it's important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.
Here's a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn't mean it's going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in Goose Creek and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.
Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed - enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.
This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back - innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend's and family's opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won't necessarily work for you.
Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night's sleep.
This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.
First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.
If you have a bad back, it's crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.
You read that right! Sleep King is the first choice for quality beds in Goose Creek, but we also have a huge selection of furniture for your home. If you're looking for a one-stop-shop for mattresses and furniture alike, you have come to the right place. If you're shopping for a new mattress at the best price possible, why not throw in a bedroom suite at an amazing price too?

GOOSE CREEK — Friday night’s game between long-time rivals Summerville and Goose Creek had very little defense. Both offenses went up and down the field all night long and Summerville won the contest, 56-30.
The Green Wave earned its fourth win in five games and bounced back from its first loss, a 16-0 setback to Sumter last week. The Gators dropped their fifth straight game to start the season, albeit against a difficult non-region schedule.
Senior running back Marquez Spells rushed for more than 200 yards and had three touchdowns. Senior quarterback Campbell McCurry topped 150 passing yards and two scores, both to junior Quintrelle Pettiford. Junior running back Trae Green added three touchdown runs for Summerville.
“I’m not surprised there were points tonight,” Summerville coach Ian Rafferty said. “That’s a good football team. They have some weapons on offense. Both teams have some dudes. Goose Creek has a Division 1 quarterback and two really good receivers. We have some guys too. We just had a little more. We knew it would be tough.”
The Green Wave displayed great offensive efficiency to open the game. On the first offensive snap, senior running back Marquez Spells raced untouched up the middle for a 59-yard scoring jaunt and a 7-0 lead just 15 seconds into the game.
The Gators answered with an 83-yard drive, culminating with Drew Moore’s eight-yard scoring pass to Troy Reid with 10:01 left in the first period. Moore finished with more than 220 yards passing while Reid topped 100 receiving yards with two scores.
Summerville again needed just one play to add to its scoring total. McCurry found Pettiford on a 73-yard bomb and Summerville led, 14-6, with 9:41 remaining.
“It’s preparation, want to,” Rafferty said of the quick start. “We have good schemes and good coaches. We have some dangerous guys. We can take it to the house from anywhere.”
Good fortune continued for the Green Wave.
After Summerville dropped a punt, Rhyan White scooped up the loose ball and raced 30 yards to the Goose Creek 32-yard line. Six plays later, Spells scored from seven yards out for a 21-6 advantage still with 6:17 remaining in the first period.
Late in the first quarter, the Gators put together a nine-play, 57-yard scoring drive with Moore scrambling in from 15 yards out with :56 left, cutting Summerville’s lead to 21-13.
Summerville drove down inside the Goose Creek 25-yard line in the second quarter, but Goose Creek safety Jordan Turner intercepted a pass and returned it to the 38. Seven plays later, Moore again scored on a keeper from eight yards out. A two-point attempt failed but Goose Creek trailed, 21-19, with 6:53 left in the second quarter.
Summerville again had a response and went 58 yards on five plays with Trae Green scoring on a five-yard run for a 28-19 lead.
The Gators used 11 plays and three Summerville penalties to get a 25-yard field goal from Owen Perez with 2:03 left in the first half, cutting the margin to 28-22 at the break.
Summerville put the game away with three touchdowns in the third quarter. McCurry found Pettiford again for a long touchdown pass, this one covering 29 yards to push the lead to 35-22.
After a Goose Creek punt, Spells led a drive with several nice runs and Green finished it off with a 13-yard scoring and the Green Wave led, 42-22, with 3:40 left in the third quarter.
Michael Woodfield intercepted Moore’s pass and returned it to the Goose Creek 15-yard line, setting up another scoring run by Green with 1:56 left in the third.
Spells added his 80-yard burst for a score after Moore and Reid got Goose Creek on the board again early in the fourth quarter for a 56-30 lead.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Shallow waters at low tide have been causing problems for boaters at Bushy Park Landing in Goose Creek for years.
The funding for a dredging project was approved in 2014 through a penny sales tax in Berkeley County. Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb says it is an important project for public safety as well as the quality of life when people use the waterway.
“When there’s a distress call out on the water, people don’t care whether DNR gets to them first, whether the Coast Guard gets to on the sheriff’s office or volunteer fire department, every minute matters,” Cribb says. So us being able to get to folks is very important. Driving by on a normal day it’s not uncommon to see someone who doesn’t know that inlet very well stuck on mud for hours waiting for the tide to come back in.”
Cribb says Bushy Park Landing is the only saltwater access point in Berkeley County, so he knows it is important to people. The county continues to work towards a dredge of the inlet, but they say it is delayed because of complicated processes and permits.
Cribb explains, officials have been working to find access to a spoil site, where they can dump the dredged sand and mud from the bottom of the inlet. The county was denied access to a few private land options, and now is going to build its own spoil site on recently purchased county land. He says the county took a few years to explore all avenues, looking for the most cost-effective and nearby spoil site.
“So right now, we’re focused on the site that we actually own,” Cribb says. “We have title to 18 acres right next to the site and the county does. But you have to build a spoil site, you can’t just start to dump the material on the site, you have to build it.”
He says the county has $1.7 million dollars for the whole project. Now that they will build their own spoil site, it will cost more than originally planned, an additional $5.1 million.
Cribb says the added costs are built into the penny tax extension referendum on the ballot this fall. He explains, if the penny tax passes, the project will be funded, but if it does not, they may be delayed while searching for matching funds.
“So we will begin permitting and constructing a spoil site as soon as we know we have the funds and that depends on the 2022 penny referendum,” Cribb says. “It’s a $587 million referendum. Obviously, this is a very small portion of it, but to a lot of people it’s the most important part of the whole referendum.”
Cribb says if the penny referendum funding passes, he thinks the county will be able to build the spoil site in time to dredge in the fall of 2024. The dredging season is from November to March of each year and requires state permits. As someone who enjoys using the boat landing himself, Cribb says he, the county, elected officials and state agencies are working hard to keep the project moving forward at all times.
“My optimism is, I know we have a good plan to remedy this and we have people working really hard on it,” Cribb says. “But I share the frustration of the public. I mean I wish it would have I wish it would have been accomplished you know many years ago, I wish there wasn’t a kind of sidetrack moment where we were looking at another site. But all of that’s hindsight. We are relentlessly working on it to the point where we’ve hired a professional consultant who is absolutely an expert in helping guide us through this.”

The Oceanside Collegiate football team has played as difficult an early season schedule as any Class AA school in the state, but has managed a 3-1 start to the 2022 campaign.
The Landsharks, ranked second in the latest statewide Class AA poll, face another challenge on Friday night when they host the 5-0 Sumter Gamecocks. Sumter, ranked fifth in Class AAAAA, already has two wins over local programs. Sumter beat Goose Creek, 31-14, and knocked off Summerville, 16-0, last week.
Oceanside Collegiate head coach Chad Wilkes said South Florence, the top-ranked Class AAAA team in the state, may have been the most complete team of the Landsharks’ first four opponents. South Florence handed OCA its only loss to date, a 29-28 thriller in Week 2. However, Sumter is easily the best defensive team on the schedule. The Gamecocks have allowed just 51 points in five games.
Sumter’s best player on the field is defensive back/receiver Zyeir Gamble, an Appalachian State commit and one of the best kick returners in the state.
Oceanside Collegiate is led offensively by senior running back Vaughn Blue, the area’s leading rusher through four games with 691 yards and seven touchdowns. Junior Ed Reidenbach has been solid and steady at quarterback, throwing for 423 yards and completing 62 percent of his pass attempts. Seniors Jace Kraftchick and Cole Strickler are the top pass catchers.
The Landsharks have been fairly stout on defense as well, coming off a 20-0 shutout of Marlboro County in their last outing. Tim Castain and Ben Britton are top performers along the front. Safety Zach Hagedon has been a big play performer in the back.
After Friday’s game, the Landsharks will venture into Region 6-AA play. It is no secret that Oceanside should run easily through region play before the state playoffs begin.
In other key games involving area schools in Week 5, Summerville (3-1) visits Goose Creek (0-4) having won five of the last seven meetings. The combined record of Goose Creek’s first five opponents leading into this game is 20-4.
Fort Dorchester (2-2) continues its difficult early schedule with its first-ever regular-season trip to fellow Class AAAAA power Gaffney (2-2). The Patriots defeated Berkeley last week without starting quarterback Zolten Osborne, and his status for this showdown is unknown. Gaffney quarterback Grayson Loftis is a Duke commitment.
Baptist Hill, ranked eighth in Class A, jumps up two classifications for a trip to AAA Manning. Cross, off to a 4-1 start, hosts Buford, the fifth-ranked team in Class AA. Cross and Baptist Hill will meet to decide the Region 8-A title in a few weeks.
West Ashley is off to a 5-0 start and will host winless Timberland. The five consecutive wins to start a season is already a school record. West Ashley’s defense has posted back-to-back shutouts and has allowed only 28 points in five games.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Goose Creek unveiled an amphitheater in honor of S.C. Rep. Joe Daning in a surprise presentation Tuesday during his retirement celebration in Goose Creek.
Joseph Daning is a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, representing District 92. He also was a Goose Creek City Council member for over 20 years and previous Goose Creek Mayor Pro Tempore.
Daning will retire from the S.C. House of Representatives in January 2023. Multiple former S.C. representatives, Mayor Gregory Habib, U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace and Daning’s family and friends attended the celebration.
All the speakers who gathered at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church spoke about Daning’s long-lasting legacy in the city, Statehouse and House of Representatives.
“He was such a great friend and a mentor and very loyal to the Lowcountry,” Nancy Mace, U.S. House of Representative, said. “It was an honor to see that the Joseph Daning amphitheater was unveiled today in Goose Creek and that’s exciting for the residents of Goose Creek too and I want to thank Mayor Habib for that effort.”
The Joseph S. Daning Amphitheater will be located at the Municipal Center Campus near the Recreation Complex and the lake behind City Hall. It plans to include an outside basketball court, a food truck area, restrooms and additional parking.
Crystal Reed, the recreation director for the City of Goose Creek, says some examples of events that will be held at the amphitheater are slam poetry, improv, concerts and movie nights.
“I think the goal of the amphitheater and the projects that we’re doing in the city of Goose Creek is to bring entertainment into our city so that residents don’t have to travel and create more traffic,” Reed said. “They can get good dining options and good entertainment here in the city of Goose Creek.”
Reed says this project will break ground in April 2023 and it should take about 18 months to complete.
When Mayor Habib introduced the new amphitheater, Daning began to cry in shock.
“I didn’t expect any of this and then the new that,” Daning said, pointing to the picture of the proposed amphitheater. “You know, my father came from the Philippines. I am first generation. I mean this is just unbelievable. You know, I never expected any of this.”
The total cost of the amphitheater will be about $4 million. Daning secured $1.5 million in state funding and the remainder will be paid by ARPA funds.
