Tips on Choosing the Best Bed

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.

Visit a Showroom

Visit a Showroom

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.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

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.

Consider Bedroom Size

Consider Bedroom Size

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.

Consider Bedroom Size

Choose a Mattress Material

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.

Need a quick refresher on different mattress materials? Here's a quick overview
 King Bedroom Sets Goose Creek, SC

Innerspring

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.

Latex

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.

Memory Foam

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.

Think About Your Back

Think About Your Back

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.

Strangers gift over $2K to Goose Creek man looking for work after cash stolen

GOOSE CREEK, S.C.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Christmas came early for a young man in Goose Creek but not before a couple of Grinches got in the way.

After realizing he dropped more than $1,700 in cash while riding his motorcycle down Highway 52 as he was headed to the store, 20-year-old Kyle Kons got to his destination Wednesday afternoon only to find his money missing. He retraced his steps to see several cars pulled over on the side of the highway - people were grabbing his cash and driving off.

“By the time I got there, the last car was pulling off,” Kons says. “I felt hopeless. I thought ‘I’ll never get this money back.’”

Kons says he had just bought a car with the cash and had put the leftover money in an envelope from the bank.

“I thought my front jacket pocket was zipped up all the way, but I guess not,” he says. “I thought I had felt something fall out and hit my leg, but I didn’t question it because nobody behind me was stopping.”

“My heart sunk. I felt like I was the laughingstock of the town,” Kons says. He says he moved to Goose Creek last year for his career in the Navy. He’s currently a Petty Officer.

In a Facebook post of his own in the group, Kons wrote, in part:

“I didn’t realize my money was gone until I arrived at Walmart, and by the time I got there, the last car was scooping up my money… I ask people to be decent human beings and return the money to the owner. I earned that money that you got for free.”

In addition to expressing his frustrations, Kons left his phone number on the post to see if anyone had extra work, so he could earn some money during the Christmas weekend.

He says he never would have thought the community would use his phone number to find his payment apps, like Venmo, CashApp and Zelle, and gift him his money back… and then some.

“I came home from work Thursday, and I had $300 in my account,” Kons says. “I was like ‘no way,’ and it was maybe five people total at the time sending money and saying ‘this sucks but have a great Christmas.’ I was so touched, like, oh my gosh, thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Kons says most of the payments appeared to be coming from other military members in the area. The payments ranged from a couple of dollars to $250.

In total, Kons tells us he’s been sent over $2,000 through the payment apps, and he doesn’t want to get any more notifications or payments.

He spent Friday with his roommates, John VanTatenhove and Tyler Roton, picking up litter on Highway 52 where he lost his money as a way of giving back to the Goose Creek community.

Both the Forbush and Starmount girls basketball teams tested themselves in a pair of holiday tournaments late last week.

And each team found forms of success.

Forbush claimed a runner-up finish at the Carolina Invitational in Charleston, S.C. after a 2-1 performance.

The Falcons dropped a tough 39-23 decision in the championship game of the Ashley River bracket on Friday evening to 5A Stratford, which was the eight-ranked South Carolina school in the state, according to MaxPreps.

They’re also currently ranked fifth in 5A, according to the South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association.

The Knights (13-3) held Forbush to just six field goals in the game and nine secondhalf points.

Despite being held scoreless in the second half, Natalie Scott led Forbush with six points while Katie Furno and Carrie Vestal added five apiece. Scott added a three assists and a pair of steals.

Mallory Chapman and Mariah Livingston both recorded a pair of blocks on defense and finished with 11 and 10 rebounds, respectively. Chapman also finished with a trio of steals.

The Falcons reached the finals thanks to a furious fourth quarter rally in a 41-34 win against Oceanside Collegiate Academy.

Down 22-19 after three quarters, the Falcons (10-4) outscored the Landsharks (6-5) by 10 points in the final stanza. Forbush scored more points in the fourth (22) than it had in the previous three quarters combined.

Like the championship game, Chapman turned in a production performance. The sophomore finished with 13 rebounds to go along with seven points, four steals, three blocks and drew a trio of charges. Livingston added 11 boards.

Furno paced a balanced scoring attack with nine points and Brooke Davis added eight points while Vestal finished with six. Despite being held to just one field goal, Scott contributed five steals and a trio of assists.

In the opener last Wednesday, the Falcons broke open a tight game in the second half with a 44-35 win over Goose Creek.

Chapman notched a double-double as she tied Vestal for the team-high in scoring with 11 points. She also added 12 rebounds, five steals and three blocks.

Livingston paced Forbush on the glass with 13 rebounds and also finished with five points.

Davis and Emily Eads added six and five points, respectively.

Starmount joined fellow Northwest 1A Conference member Mount Airy, along with four other teams in the Chick-fil-A Holiday Invitational at North Surry last Wednesday and Thursday.

The Rams started off on the right foot with a 57-48 win over Surry Central in the opener.

Starmount held an eight-point lead after one quarter (14-6) and was ahead 29-23 at halftime.

In the second game, the Rams and the Greyhounds went back and forth before North Surry held on for the 48-46 win despite going nearly the last four minutes without a basket. But the Greyhounds went 7-of-9 from the free-throw line in the span.

North Surry (6-4) extended the lead to as many as four late before Amelia Vanhoy knocked down a basket at the buzzer.

Vanhoy, a senior, finished just shy of double figures with nine points; Morgan Pinnix paced the Rams, who will play three games this week (it culminates with a battle against Elkin on Friday), with 13 points and freshman Molly Swaim chipped in 12.

Layken Mathis had eight points and Emma Smith finished with four.

Sade Badgett led the Greyhounds, who hosted Mount Airy on Tuesday and hosts West Wilkes on Friday, with a game-high 16 points. Sarah Mauldin and Kalyn Collins added 10 and nine points, respectively.

Goose Creek’s new barrier-free Central Creek Park is tentatively scheduled for a Dec. 16 public opening, according to local public information officer Frank Johnson.

The new $9 million park site will consist of a 13-acre, all-abilities outdoor recreation facility that is reportedly benefitting from the generosity of community-based donors.

These monetary contributions, it was noted, will help pay for some of the innovative equipment and featured for the open space, located at 147 Old Moncks Corner Road.

“We launched our We All Rise capital campaign late last year and have been pleasantly surprised and extremely grateful for the outpouring of financial support,” said Mayor Gregory Habib. “This giving level speaks volumes about our community’s commitment to ensuring inclusivity.”

The barrier-free components of Central Creek Park will serve visitors of all ages and abilities and they include: Debra’s Playground, Splash Creek, a field, stage area, a walking trail, the Eubanks Athletic Courts and the Casey Pavilion, sponsored by Roper St. Francis Healthcare.

“I hope the Roper St. Francis Casey Pavilion will be a place for residents of all ages to gather for health, wellness, fitness, and fellowship,” said Roper President & CEO Dr. Jeffrey DiLisi. “We are proud to be a part of this growing and vibrant community, both by supporting spaces, such as this, as well as providing exceptional care at sites across the county. We hope this special Pavilion serves the community for decades to come, and we look forward to continuing to partner with and care for Goose Creek.”

Jeff Lewis Architect, Trident Construction, The LandPlan Group South, Carolina Parks & Play, Landscape Structures and Rain Drop have all been commissioned by the City of Goose Creek to assure residents that the park will operate as a safe and friendly venue for all community members.

The aforementioned companies have produced and approved designs to facilitate wheelchair access across multiple areas of the park, along with swings, a zipline and several Splash Creek water-play features, such as: Mr. Claw Crab, the Pirate Cannon and the Big Kahuna Wave.

Park, play and exercise structures and/or amenities have been built to accommodate people of varying sizes, postures and mobility ranges in the interest of providing the highest of physical challenges while keeping hazards at a minimum.

It’s a sentiment that Goose Creek Recreation Director Crystal Reed wholeheartedly endorses.

“Central Creek Park is a testament to how important a universal-access culture is to the citizens of Goose Creek,” she said. “Our community stepped up in a big way to help create a world-class outdoor recreation space for everyone, regardless of age or ability.“

Project partner/supporter and CEO-President of Goose Creek Heating & Air Robbie Wright added: “We are honored and delighted to support such a game-changing community centerpiece as Central Creek Park. [It’s] a welcome addition to an already vibrant culture, the park will make fitness, play, awareness, and exposure to new opportunities accessible to all. Goose Creek Heating and Air is proud to play a small part in this extraordinary endeavor.”

The recreation destination’s footprint will be able to handle more than 600 individuals at a time and ensures that no one is excluded from the joys derived from outdoor play, promises Goose Creek Assistant Recreation Director Nicole Herrera Murray.

On that note, Murray believes that the new park will emerge as “the heartbeat of our community.”

Private donations made to the park were in excess of $1.3 million, which comprised leadership gifts, naming opportunities and a long list of Friends of the Park.

Notable gifts include:

• Casey Pavilion, Made Possible by Roper St. Francis Healthcare

• Early Childhood Playground, Made Possible by Berkeley County

• School-Age Playground, Made Possible by Boeing

• Splash Creek, Made Possible by Berkeley County

• Park Office, Made Possible by Goose Creek Heating & Air

• Field & Stage, Made Possible by Home Telecom

• Walking Trail, Made Possible by Berkeley Electric Cooperative & Trident Construction

• Community Trail, Made Possible by Mungo Homes

• Eubanks Athletic Courts, Made Possible by Goose Creek Recreation Commission

There is still time to support the park with a general donation or sponsor a Tribute Bench in honor or memory of someone special. A gift of $1,500 reserves the right to honor or memorialize an individual, group, or organization with an inscribed plaque that will be placed on a park bench.

As clean-up efforts begin in Buffalo after the deadly blizzard hit last Friday folks that live there are not the only ones affected.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - As clean-up efforts begin in Buffalo, New York after the deadly blizzard hit last Friday, folks that live there are not the only ones affected. Some have families that live right here in the Lowcountry.

“She mentioned to me, she said, ‘By the way, if you haven’t been following the news, we have what they’re calling a ‘cataclysmic blizzard’ headed our way,’ Heather Lord, who lives in Goose Creek, said.

She heard this on the phone from her sister in Buffalo, New York this past week. She lives there with her husband, Brian Mach.

“Friday morning it was light out and you didn’t see a person walking, a car driving,” Mach said. “Everybody was aware of it, and it felt like, is the end of the world coming? Because there’s nothing going on.”

Mach says the blizzard was so intense that you couldn’t see just a few yards in front of you. He says it was probably 48 to 60 hours straight of 70 mph winds. He compares it to the strength of a hurricane, like the Lowcountry often experiences.

“I would guess probably a three or four would be equivalent to what we went through,” Mach said.

Lord says the preparation is comparable.

“The thing is here, locally, when we are told it’s time to evacuate, I mean, we get on the road,” Lord said.

Mach says the anticipation makes you think.

“That doesn’t diminish the fact that when it hits, you think, everybody thinks, ‘Oh, I’ll survive this,’” Mach said. “But when it hits and you’re in the middle of it, everybody, I think, has second thoughts.”

“They can result in something catastrophic,” Lord said. “They can result in death.”

The death toll in Buffalo has risen to at least 40 people from Winter Storm Elliott and authorities are still searching for more bodies that may be under snow.

Fortunately for this family, they say they are okay.

“They’re going to do their very best to make sure they’re out of harm’s way,” Lord said. “But again, accidents can happen. I was just very thankful, as he said, that my sister didn’t have to go to work on Friday. That could’ve been, that could’ve been catastrophic.”

Mach says he spends at least two to three hours a day outside shoveling snow and plans to keep doing it for the next couple days. Both of them say they’re going to stay in contact in hopes that Buffalo has seen the last of a major snowstorm for quite some time.

How a new 300-unit apartment complex will shake up the Goose Creek area in the future

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — Tonight, the City of Goose Creek is expected finalize its plans for a new 300-unit apartment complex coming to Henry Brown Boulevard, as the city’s Board of Architectural Review will make its final recommendations to the developers for adjustments.

The complex will take up 24 acres adjacent to Henry Brown Blvd. With 10 three-story buildings surrounding a central pond. The complex will include amenities such as a dog park, pedestrian walkway and a five-story garage.

However, it has been a long time coming to get to this point. The conceptual design was initially approved over a decade ago. The development is zoned under a “Pre-Existing Development” which outdates projects which were approved by the current city council and Goose Creek Mayor Greg Habib.

But with the population in goose creek growing by over 25 percent over the past decade, the main concern for residents is making sure the infrastructure is in place to fit the current state of the city.

“I feel that we're kind of at the mercy of the builder at this point, because they were approved so long ago, before the vision of what it should be for Goose Creek. So, anything that the [Board of Architectural Review] recommends or anything like that, it's kind of limited what they can do,” Goose Creek Resident Eric Bennett said.

“I really think that the city council, I think that the mayor is working with these builders and talking to them, and seeing how they can come to some middle ground and anytime that you're able to communicate, anytime that people are willing to meet in the middle, then everybody wins," Bennett continued.

Since the project was approved already the BAR can’t stop or reject the apartment complex from being built. The board of architectural review will make recommendations including lighting, signage and elevation at tonight’s meeting.

But the question for a lot of residents remains how those in charge will handle the project which was approved in a very different Goose Creek than we are seeing today.

There are already some changes in the works as the city has is nearly two years into their project to expand a portion of Henry Brown Blvd. from a two lane road to a four lane road.

The bigger concern for residents is the infrastructure around the building, with one of the key elements being storm water management. This has been a problem for the city and greater Berkeley County area for a while, especially after we saw flooding impacts from Hurricane Ian and Tropical storm Nicole hit those areas.

While some say the complex isn’t a negative for the city, residents do say they want to see the right steps made in the implementation of this new building to fit into the city’s current structure.

“The challenge that you have, though is where does the money come to get that infrastructure put in place? And the answer to that is to the growth, right? Putting these projects and the impact fees that come from these projects towards that infrastructure, the tax revenue, and everything else from the property taxes and stuff is what's going to drive the ability to improve that infrastructure,” Bennett said.

In a statement provided to us from the City of goose creek officials says in part quote:

All stormwater requirements required by the county will be in place for these or any developments.

But there was no statement on whether the city or county as a whole would plan to change any of those with the new building in place. It is important to note most of the Stormwater Management or external infrastructure management comes from Berkley County and not the city of Goose Creek.

City officials also said developers now need to have any new apartment complex approved by the current mayor and council for full approval. Something which was not in place when this complex was approved.

The city's Board of Architectural Review meeting is scheduled for Monday at 6 p.m.
