At Sleep King, we carry the largest selection of high-quality national brand mattresses in Mount Pleasant.
Often considered the best mattress brand in the world, innovation sets Tempurpedic mattresses apart from others. Our customers love Tempurpedic mattresses because they are expertly built through decades of research and rigorous testing. The folks at Tempurpedic are committed to precision, meaning every detail of product detail they push is geared towards the ultimate satisfaction and comfort.
Serta iComfort: Serta’s iComfort line of mattresses are multi-layered beds with cooling foam technology that adds resilience, support, and temperature control. The result is a cool, comfy sleep that leaves you refreshed and ready to attack the day.
Every mattress in the Simmons Beautysleep lineup has a great combo of support and comfort, making for a restful night’s sleep. With heavy-gauge coils and high-performance materials, these mattresses are durable and built to last. Be sure to try one of these mattresses out in our showroom – our customers love the pocketed coils and minimal motion transfer.
The Bed Boss brand is lesser known than some, like Tempurpedic. Still, it is a quality product with many foam and non-foam options that we think you’ll love. Choose from standard memory foam, hybrid, and innerspring options while visiting our showroom in Mount Pleasant.
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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant 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 Mount Pleasant, 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?

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Loyal Trader Joe’s customers will soon be able to buy their “two-buck chuck” again after the Mount Pleasant store had its beer and wine permit suspended.
Sales were “off the table” for the last ten days following a ruling from a South Carolina administrative court.
The suspension began on January 2 stemming from an undercover SLED operation from nearly two years ago.
The agency reported that during a 40 store sting in February 2020, a clerk at the Trader Joe’s store sold a 6-pack of beer to a 19-year-old who was working with them.
That was the store’s third offense in three years.
According to court documents, the first was in November 2017 where the grocery store chain paid a $500 fine. The second, in March 2018, resulted in a $1,000 fine.
The South Carolina Department of Revenue, which issues alcohol and beverage licenses, has a procedure for each consecutive violation in selling alcohol to an underage customer.
In this case, the DOR made a final determination in February 2021 and imposed a 45-day suspension.
But the store challenged that.
Based on the estimates provided by the store manager, 12 to 13% of the store’s sales are alcohol and it is considered to have the highest volume of alcohol sales for the chain in the region
A suspension of 45 days would cost the store an estimated $750,000.
A regional vice president testified this would cause a decline in customer satisfaction and possibly lead to hours cut for employees due to the loss in revenue.
However, the DOR allows for “mitigating factors” to reduce penalties.
These include documented training for employees, internal checks and automated age verification programs (i.e. register system requires manual input of birth date before sale can be completed).
Judge Shirley Robinson, citing these mitigating factors present at Trader Joe’s store 752 and its good standing in the community, ordered the store to pay a $3,000 fine and institute a 10 day suspension instead of the 45 days.
The suspension also could not take place during the holiday season between November 19, 2021 and January 2, 2022.
The store can begin selling beer and wine again on Wednesday, January 12.
If there is a fourth violation within three years, the DOR could fully revoke the store’s permit, according to its penalty guidelines for ABL violations.

A former systems manager at Boeing Co. is pleading guilty to defrauding the government out of more than $122,000 from a federal loan program created to save jobs during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The U.S. Attorney’s office said Suzanne Weintraub and unidentified associates “both known and unknown” illegally obtained the Payroll Protection Program money through a “defunct” retail bakery.
The scheme started in April 2020, according to prosecutors. The U.S. Small Business Administration approved the forgivable $122,445 loan about two months later to a sole proprietorship called Sunny Bee Cookies LLC, which listed the same address as a home Weintraub owns in the RiverTowne neighborhood off S.C. Highway 41 in Mount Pleasant.
The emergency funding was requested to help meet payroll for six jobs, according to a database of the federal loans. The funds were transferred electronically to an account in South Carolina from an out-of-state bank.
The government said Weintraub included bogus tax and payroll documents in the bakery’s application to the SBA.
She was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She faces up to five years in prison, three years in a supervised release program and a fine of $250,000.
Weintraub was not formally indicted. Interim U.S. Attorney Corey Ellis charged her in a Jan. 12 court filing known as an information. By then, she already had signed a plea agreement. Her defense attorney did not respond to a request for comment.
Weintraub is required to cooperate with investigators and forfeit any money, property or other assets she received from her role in the conspiracy. Prosecutors are seeking to recoup a minimum of about $37,000 from her.
No hearings have been scheduled in the case.
According to Weintraub’s LinkedIn profile, she started working for Boeing in North Charleston in 2015 as an information technology project manager and became a business systems manager in 2018. The planemaker said in a Jan. 13 statement that she’s no longer employed with the company.
The government appears to be taking a hard stance on crimes involving funds from the national COVID-19 economic relief program known as the CARES Act. The U.S. Attorney’s office announced Thursday that a Blythewood woman was sentenced to two years in prison after she pleaded guilty to obtaining more than $1.2 million in loans by submitting fraudulent documents.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Cold Rain, Freezing Rain, Sleet, and Snow. When a winter storm is in the conversation, these terms are always thrown out in the mix. And most of the time, especially in the Lowcountry, we only see heavy amounts of cold rain.
With the potential for a winter storm expected to impact parts of South Carolina, we can clarify the difference between the terms, and why the Lowcountry doesn’t look like it will get any snowfall at all.
Snow is something that the Carolinas are no stranger to however, it seems as if the Lowcountry gets left out of the fun whenever a winter storm impacts the region. The last time the Lowcountry saw snow was actually not too long ago, with the Great Winter Storm of 2018, which was the third-highest recorded snowfall here.
Even though snow and ice are in the forecast for our neighbors in the upstate, and perhaps midlands, it doesn’t look like the snow, ice, or sleet will reach down to the Lowcountry.
Sleet and Freezing Rain
With this winter storm headed to the Carolinas, the midlands have a chance to see sleet/freezing rain. But what is the difference between the two, and what ingredients do we need to see these events? Different parts of the atmosphere have different temperatures, and that accounts for the differences we see between sleet and freezing rain. Sleet occurs when snow falls through the atmosphere and as it passes through a thin layer of warm air it melts. After it melts a bit, it will re-enter a pocket of cold air right before it reaches the surface. From there it refreezes and bounces off the surface like an ice pellet that we call sleet.
Freezing rain follows a journey similar to sleet on its descent through the atmosphere. Beginning as snow in the upper atmosphere, freezing rain reaches a larger warm pocket, melts, and becomes rain. Instead of re-cooling before hitting the surface, the water droplet reaches the cold Earth’s surface and freezes immediately becoming ice.
Forecasting for the coming winter storm, in particular, requires a lengthy process, with many variables.
The United States is currently in a weather pattern called La Niña. A La Niña winter typically means we see warmer, wetter conditions in the Pacific Northwest and warmer, dryer conditions in the Southeast. We have also seen warmer temperature trends within the last couple of weeks, even with this threat of freezing rain and sleet, models are leaning more towards just cold rain this weekend.
Currently, there is an active jet stream plunging south with widespread colder air, meaning the Carolinas are likely going to be affected. Winter storm warnings, watches, and advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service for Midwestern and Southern states. It is likely that additional watches and warnings could be issued while the storm is in its path and becomes more in focus.
There are still some uncertainties in the forecast, including exactly where low-pressure tracks and where the below-freezing air near the ground will set up and for how long. This could lead to changes in the forecast in the days ahead, which is typical for most winter storms. It doesn’t look as if the Lowcountry will be able to join the snow-day fun that our neighbors in the upper part of the state will be having.
We could possibly even see a rumble of thunder or two. Many details are still in the works as we wait for the Higher Resolution Mesoscale Models; however, it looks as if it will be just another cold, windy, and rainy weekend for the Lowcountry.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Dorchester District 4 and the Colleton County School District are moving to virtual learning because of a rise in COVID-19 cases among staff and students in the districts.DD4 and Colleton County each made the decision in the last 24 hours.
District officials at both Colleton and DD4 say the move to virtual learning had to happen due to the increased spread of COVID-19 among both students and staff. Making it nearly impossible to operate their districts in-person.
“We were all unprepared for the spread of the virus, no one expected omicron to raise it’s ugly head,” says Dr. Valerie Cave, Superintendent of the Colleton County School District.
The omicron variant is hitting Lowcountry schools hard making it difficult to keep buildings open for students and staff.
“From Friday to Monday our numbers nearly doubled in the majority of our buildings, that same trend held from Monday to Tuesday with our numbers nearly doubling again,” says Monica Tudder, Director of Exceptional Children at DD4.
District leaders say roughly 20% of the DD4 students are either COVID-19 positive or in quarantine with a number of staff members also out of the classroom.
“But keeping obviously teachers in the building, keeping nurses in the building because they are getting COVID-19, it is very difficult,” says Tudder.
It’s a similar story for Colleton County, Dr. Cave says roughly an eighth of the district’s staff members are out while more than 700 students are in quarantine.
“The spread was going at a rampant pace within our schools and when you can’t provide instruction you need to make those decisions,” says Dr. Cave.
“It’s something district staff knows is an inconvenience and concern for parents of district students. The Colleton County School District plans to continue strict dis-infecting protocols and will bring back desk shields in an effort after the break to keep students and staff healthy.
“Our teachers are going to be in constant communication with those students, we’re going to record our lessons and upload those to google classrooms,” says Dr. Cave.
Charleston County School District parents have raised concerns over the accuracy of the district’s COVID-19 dashboard. The district says due to an “extreme” rise in COVID-19 cases, they are experiencing delays in updating the dashboard. The updates are done twice a day Monday through Friday.
In Berkeley County, the decision to transition to virtual learning is made on a school by school basis. District officials say they have no plans to transition to virtual learning at this point.
School leaders say they are working through the challenges while ensuring the level of education remains top of the line for students.
“We’ve done everything possible to make sure our children get quality instruction,” says Dr. Cave.
Georgetown County School District has decided to move Georgetown Middle School to virtual learning starting on Thursday and will return to in-person learning on Monday January 24th.
Colleton County plans to bring students back to in-person learning on January 19th while DD4 will bring back student on January 20th. District officials for both schools say they will continue to monitor infection rates.

A former barbecue restaurant in northern Mount Pleasant is being transformed into a new dining venture.
Workers are upfitting the former Mama Brown’s BBQ site at 2840 U.S. Highway 17 near S.C. Highway 41 for a new Dunkin’ Donuts eatery.
An opening date has not been announced.
A West Ashley self-described “fun neighborhood joint” is set to close after a 16-year run.
The d.d. Peckers’ Wing Shack at 1660 Savannah Highway will be “going off the air” Jan. 23, co-owner Derek Harris said in a Facebook post that he later confirmed.
“Come by. Say hi,” he added, likening the upcoming closing to the last episode of the classic TV sitcom “Cheers.”
“We are very happy to go out on our terms,” Harris said in a Jan. 12 email to The Post and Courier. “The property has been sold and thus our lease. Everyone is happy!”
He added that he and business partner Brian Lawson “have been casually trying to sell for years because we are both ready to try something different. … I was a teacher for 12 years, a bar owner for 20, and now...it is still a mystery to me!”
The restaurant took over a space that formerly housed Capt. Don’s Seafood, and “the first couple years were really really tough. Then we hit the sweet spot,” Harris said.
He extended a hearty thanks to customers and employees, some whom have been with D.D. Peckers since day one.
“Unheard of!” he wrote.
An eyewear chain will make its Charleston-area debut at 9 a.m. on Jan. 17.
Texas-based Eyemart Express will open at 7818 Rivers Ave. in a new outparcel building at Promenade at Northwoods Shopping Center across from Northwoods Mall in North Charleston.
It’s the first store in the Lowcountry for the retailer. It touts shorter wait times since the shop has an on-site lens lab and technicians who can make glasses the same day they are ordered. Some, the company said, can be ready in as little as 30 minutes. Melissa Bryant is the store manager.
The shop will be open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday. It’s closed on Sunday.
Eyemart Express now has nine stores in South Carolina.
A downtown Charleston art venue has unveiled a second location in the Lowcountry.
Meyer Vogl Gallery recently opened in a 2,000-square-foot shop at 250 River Landing Drive on Daniel Island.
It represents more than 20 artists from across the U.S. and Spain. It’s open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and by appointment on Sunday and Monday.
The original gallery is at 122 Meeting St. on the peninsula.
A Charleston-based company that grows lettuce indoors hydroponically can now be found on the shelves of a Southeastern grocery store chain.
Vertical Roots’ leafy greens are now in 303 Food Lion supermarkets across the Southeast.
“Our new retail partnership with Food Lion is evidence of both our strong retail partnerships and the significant demand for regionally grown hydroponic produce among consumers, which is expanding to value shoppers,” said Andre Hare, co-founder and general manager of Vertical Roots.
The company operates its headquarters and research and development center off Clements Ferry Road in Cainhoy. It also has farm sites in Charleston, Columbia and Atlanta, with plans to add more operations in other locations this year.
The company’s produce, grown without soil, is now available in more than 2,000 grocery stores in 13 states across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
North Carolina-based Food Lion, part of Belgium-based conglomerate Ahold Delhaize, operates 19 supermarkets in the Charleston area.
Vertical Roots’ lettuce also can be found in some other Charleston-area stores such as Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods and Publix, according to the grower’s website.
A North Carolina-based grocery chain has adopted new hours.
Harris Teeter began closing its stores at 9 p.m. on Jan. 10 until further notice to allow workers to restock shelves, clean stores and process online orders ahead of time.
The company, which is owned by the Kroger Corp. and headquartered near Charlotte, said the decision was not made because of staffing shortages.
Harris Teeter operates 18 stores in the Charleston area. They generally open at 6 a.m.
An antique artifact exhibit and sale with 200 display tables of military relics from the Revolutionary War to World War II is returning to the Charleston area for its 29th time.
The Lowcountry Antique Militaria & Americana Show & Sale will take place 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Jan. 15 and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Jan. 16 at Omar Shrine Auditorium at 176 Patriots Point Road in Mount Pleasant.
The event will feature historical displays, appraisers and buyers and sellers of many types of historical memorabilia, such as coins, bottles, arrowheads and fossils.
American Digger Magazine, an Atlanta-area publication, is sponsoring the event.
“Our purpose is to show the public that it is fun and important to learn our nation’s past,” said Butch Holcombe, publisher.
“Artifacts themselves transcend the rhetoric sometimes heard today; artifacts have no agenda,” Holcombe said. “A Civil War relic, Native American arrowhead, or old bottle is a direct link with the past and offers no judgments. It is what it is. This also offers the public a chance to learn more about items that they might have.”
In recent years, the sponsor has made the show more appealing to the general public, with awards for historical displays, numerous door prizes for the public, and free artifacts and admission to kids 12 and under. The admission is $10 per person for all others.
