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?
Living Room Sets - from traditional-style suites with classic textures to modern sets with attractive upholstery, we will help you find the best living room set for your home.

Middle schools in Mount Pleasant outperformed both the district and state averages on the SC READY standardized tests.
SC READY is a statewide assessment in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics administered to students in third through eighth grade. The tests are taken in the spring. South Carolina schools did not perform as highly as state education officials would like.
Learning disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic impacted math scores in particular, with over 25% of each grade level not meeting state standards. About 40% of eighth graders in South Carolina do not meet state standards in mathematics.
Charleston County schools, especially those in Mount Pleasant, avoided a large dip in SC READY scores. Laing Middle School, Thomas C. Cario Middle School and Moultrie Middle School had less than 15% of each grade level not meet state standards in ELA and mathematics.
Moultrie Middle School outperformed state averages on SC READY for both ELA and mathematics. Only 3.4% of sixth graders did not meet state standards for ELA, compared to the state average of 23.1%.
Laing Principal James Whitehair attributes this to several reasons. Motivated teachers, strong relationships between students and teachers, and a hands-on learning approach.
“We find the best ways to educate kids. We expect kids to collaborate and problem solve together,” Whitehair said. “We want them to be engaged in whatever activity they’re in and really get a close connection with the content that is being taught.”
Whitehair, while proud of how highly students performed, said the school never has a goal of teaching to tests. Tests are not “a determination of success” for students.
“We want the kid to be prepared to take on whatever challenge that they have going forward in life, not having their academics be a limitation to that,” Whitehair said. “We want to prepare kids to achieve and be able to problem solve.”
Cario Middle School Interim Principal Bryan Coleman said that even though the school outperformed the state average, they are always looking for ways to close the achievement gap. This can look like targeted intervention efforts for areas that students need improvement in, even if they’re considered “high-performing.”
“We have honors kids who we have in reading intervention classes, not because they’re low achieving, just to help them grow specifically in the area of informational texts. So we find that students everywhere, even adults, they struggle with informational texts and pulling out the relevant information,” Coleman said.
In math classes, Cario utilizes personalized learning digital content to fill in educational gaps that students may have accumulated over the years. They also work closely with fifth-grade teachers at feeder schools for Cario to make sure there are no gaps in instruction.
“We’re making sure we’re sharing information on what we’re seeing with our upcoming sixth graders, and they’re sharing what they do and talking about how they can best support that transition from fifth to sixth grade,” Coleman said.
The goal for both Laing and Cario, as well as all Charleston County schools, is to get all kids performing on grade level by 2027, as set by CCSD Superintendent Donald Kennedy.

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — Mount Pleasant means business today .. quite literally. The 12th annual Mount Pleasant Business and Community expo will take place later this afternoon.
Members of the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce say this is the largest networking event East of the Cooper year after year and say at the heart of the event is a chance for businesses in the Mount Pleasant area to get the opportunity to expand their outreach and have some fun while doing it.
There will be around 90 businesses in attendance ranging from large corporations to small businesses as well as community outreach groups such as East Cooper community outreach and Roper St. Francis – who will provide medical information to residents.
Officials say although Mount Pleasant is a fast-growing community, they want this event to be a bridge for businesses to be engaged with residents and develop those personal relationship which officials say is the basis of good business.
“We have learned how important it is particularly in a community like Mount Pleasant, where people are very personable, it's a very personable still a small community. We have 93,000 residents now I believe in the town of Mount Pleasant,” Director of Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce Rebecca Imholz said.
"But we still like that community feel and it gives a great opportunity for businesses to be engaged with the community and hear what their needs are so they can better address them and grow," she said.
According to census data, businesses in Mount Pleasant generate over $1.5 billion in revenue for the city. But officials with the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce said they saw a significant drop off during the pandemic.
However, officials with the Chamber of Commerce say there in 2022 the market has begun to rise again and is now very healthy. They say face to face contact, such as events like these, are a big part to help these businesses grow.
“I think what we've learned particularly after the pandemic is there's nothing like personal engagement. So that's what's so wonderful about this expo is that people are getting information right on the spot,” Imholz said. “This type of an event and being part of the chamber gives them a chance to better expose what they're doing.”
The event will kick off at 1 p.m. at the Omar Shrine Convention Center with a local mascot parade as well as free lunch provided by food trucks, there will also be a happy hour to end the event from 5 to 6 p.m.
Officials with the Chamber of Commerce said there will also be interactive exhibits like puppies and kittens to pet from the Charleston Animal Society and Bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes

AWENDAW, S.C. (WCSC) - A potential new middle and high school in Awendaw has a chance to be a partial magnet school, and students from multiple parts of the district can be pulled to take part in a specialized curriculum.
Charleston County School District Board Members and the people of Mount Pleasant got to hear new details about the potential schools on Wednesday. District officials told people at the meeting, held at Laing Middle School, that a lot of the plans right now are just ideas with no specific timeline.
This new middle and high school would be located on 107 acres at Highway 17 and Jenkins Hill Road. As part of this plan, district staff presented concept maps with multiple options for rezoning.
Jeff Borowy, the Chief Operating Officer for the district, says this plan will be a challenge.
“Most of the times we build a school, we just build a specific zone of attendance for that school, but in this case, we want to have a number of students to offer the right programs for those students,” Borowy said. “So, we have to look out of the box and look for something different beyond the zone.”
District staff says one of the main challenges is making sure that each school holds a maximum of 500 students. This would pull in kids from D1, the Awendaw-McClellanville area, and some from D2 in the northern Mount Pleasant area.
Staff also say they are continuing to research desirable education options for a partial magnet school to reach that target enrollment.
“It’s going to be very important to let’s build the school from up, but at the same time, let’s figure out what we’re going to be doing inside,” Thomas Colleton, D1 Constituent Board Chair, said. “The curriculum needs a lot.”
There is currently no timeline on construction for the schools because the district does not know if this magnet option will be included. The district says it is possible that the earliest we can start to see construction would be in four years.
Jonathan Mars, a parent of two children at Carolina Park Elementary, says this could be an option for his family when his kids get older.
“But it does sound like they’re going to have very specific programs at the school,” Mars said. “So, for example, if there’s a great art program and my daughter’s really into art that seems like a great option to have.”
As of now, this project is not fully funded and the district says they do not have a price estimate.
They say the next step is to charter a blue-ribbon committee in mid-October that will look at enrollment numbers and look at the best options to make this project successful.

When Frank and Sonya Pacera opened Heavens Marketplace in Myrtle Beach mid-summer of 2020, they had their entire future riding on its success. Now, barely two years later, the husband-and-wife team just held a grand opening for a second location in Mount Pleasant. The new space is complete with more room for home décor, furnishings, whimsical beach signs and tons of unique gifts sourced by local artists. There is no shortage of that famous South Carolina flavor and feel.
“We love the Charleston area and found the perfect spot to expand in what was once the Boone Hall Market,” Frank Pacera said. “A new investor recently bought the property and we met with them in March to discuss our concept, and they loved it.”
That concept contains 10,000 square feet and a vast assortment of offerings, including:
Heavens Marketplace also has something for everyone this upcoming holiday season. Jewelry, flowers, wreathes, accessories, candles, fashion apparel, seasonal decor and extensive faith-inspired inventory dot the retail space. These offerings reflect both the Paceras’ business name and approach.
“Each week we bring in items to keep our inventory fresh and new,” Sonya Pacera said. “We also plan to have workshop classes and areas for people to sit, enjoy coffee, read our prayer trees and just feel relaxed in our setting.”
The Paceras have come a long way from the uncertainty they were facing when they launched their first shop at Tanger Outlet 17 in Myrtle Beach. That first shop is similar to the new one in Mount Pleasant, but as with any new venture, they had no guarantee of revenue and only hoped to make an impact.
“We honestly didn’t know what to expect when we started—we tested out a small location for the first shop at Barefoot Landing before moving to Tanger,” Sonya Pacera said. “Now, I can say it has been a true blessing to be where we are today.”
The new location will allow vendor events, classes and things that the Paceras said they haven’t even thought of yet. But with a larger building, the local history and the surrounding environment of Mount Pleasant, the newest Heavens Marketplace is going to allow both locals and visitors to plunge into Lowcountry relaxation—and once you feel it, you might want to stay for a very long time.
“So many people tell us they could spend hours just enjoying the inspirational vibe we have created at Heavens Marketplace,” Sonya Pacera said. “And every time a customer comes up to us and says ‘I just love your store; it’s so uplifting,’ it’s the best part of our day.”

It’s autumn in the South, and we all know what that means: helmets crashing, cheerleaders jumping and crowds roaring. The Friday night lights are blazing, so it’s time to introduce you to three of Mount Pleasant’s brightest football stars.
At Oceanside Collegiate Academy, senior Zach Hagedon is helping build a football legacy. His senior class is only the fourth to graduate from the young charter school. This is also only Hagedon’s fourth year of football; prior to high school, he played soccer. But American football was always in his blood.
“I watched football my whole life,” he said. “I had to try it.”
He tried out, made the team and became a key defensive player for Oceanside.
“I played linebacker my freshman year and learned I really like tackling people. That’s where I make a big impact.”
Since then, he’s settled into other defensive roles, including cornerback and safety.
“I’m looking forward to making a last run with the players and friends I’ve been with for the last four years and trying to win the state championship,” he said. “We’ve been working so hard. It’ll be nice to see it pay off.”
Next year, Hagedon plans to go to college. Coastal Carolina is his dream school, but he’ll see where the next few months take him
Over at Lucy Beckham High School, quarterback Jimmy Webb is pumped. Literally. He’s been working out hard his whole life, waiting for this moment.
“I’ve been playing football since I was 5 years old,” he relayed. “I started with flag football, then moved up through the ranks.”
He used to be a lineman, both offensive and defensive, which requires a very specific size and physique. However, after a year of diving into the weight room and nutrition planning, Webb and his coaches realized he wasn’t fitting into that mold anymore. They moved him to starting quarterback.
“I grew up playing baseball,” said Webb. “I had a good arm already, but I owe everything to Coach Hart, the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach. He brought me up from scratch.”
For his senior year, Webb said, “I want us to do the best we can. There’s no reason we can’t be the best team in the state. We have the talent at every position. We’ve [beaten] teams that other schools didn’t think we could. So why not us?”
His is the first senior class at Lucy Beckham.
“I think being the first class that’ll graduate, I’ve really been able to make my mark on the school. And for the younger guys on the team, I’ve tried to be a role model and leader, on and off the field.”
For college, Webb hopes to stay in state. While he’s gone to a few football camps and on a few tours, he’s not sure he’ll play in college. But there’s still a whole season ahead of him. That’s what’s most important to him at the moment.
Of course, we can’t talk about Mount Pleasant football without including Wando High School, one of the biggest schools in the state. It’s there that senior Mikey Rosa is getting ready to have the season of his life.
“I’ve been playing since elementary school,” offered the starting linebacker. “Football is my whole life. It’s my favorite thing in the world. It’s my escape from the world. Football gets my mind off everything else. You just play.”
As a linebacker, he’s a leader of the Wando defensive squad.
“You’ll see me on the field, yelling my head off,” he said. “It’s my job to recognize the strengths in the other team’s offense and get people where they need to be.”
Rosa spent much of the summer injured but has been cleared to play. The whole team’s been working hard in the weight room, implementing a new strength and conditioning program. Rosa hopes to make his own mark by being a leader and helping to shift the team culture to be even more of a winning one.
He told Mount Pleasant Magazine, “I want to help raise these freshman and sophomores and shape them into what a winning team looks like. I want to show them how to do it on and off the field.”
Unlike Hagedon and Webb, Rosa knows where he’s going to college, but he’s keeping that info close to his chest for a while. He’s excited about the future, but right now, he’s focused on the present. That means making his senior season at Wando truly incredible.
You can catch Hagedon, Webb and Rosa on the field for the next few months of Fridays, where their talents are sure to shine as brightly as the lights cast upon them. Cheers to all of them for representing Mount Pleasant. We wish them each a safe season.
