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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley 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 West Ashley, 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.

You may have heard of the Waffle House Index, The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) unofficial metric for measuring the severity of a storm. Known for its covered and smothered hash browns, the chain restaurant has also earned a reputation over the years for often staying open in the face of extreme weather—or at least reopening quickly thereafter. As former FEMA administrator Craig Fugate put it, "If you get there and the Waffle House is closed? That's really bad." Charleston, South Carolina, residents, though, have their own indicator: the Coburg Cow.
Known to some as Bessie, the beloved faux bovine perches on an elevated neon sign for the old Coburg Dairy once located off Savannah Highway, a well-trafficked thoroughfare in West Ashley, a suburb of the Holy City. Originally placed on her 10-feet-high platform by the family-owned dairy farm in 1959, the iconic fiberglass cow (now in her third iteration) has since inspired both nostalgic devotion and foolhardy traditions (once upon a time, daring neighborhood kids and Citadel cadets rode the cow as a rite of passage). And she has long served as a sign of the season: around Christmas, a bottle of eggnog may appear beside her; on the Fourth of July, tricolored bunting adorns her neck.
But it's the Coburg Cow's occasional absence that garners the most attention.
Before Hurricane Hugo, one of the strongest storms to ever hit South Carolina, made landfall in 1989, the Coburg Cow was evacuated from her perch. The neon sign she stands on was destroyed in the storm and wasn't repaired until 1991, when she once again took her place on the pedestal.
Now, whenever a hurricane is projected to sweep through town, the Coburg Cow is removed from the sign and stowed away until it's safe for her to return. For some residents, the Lowcountry landmark's removal is a surefire indicator of the severity of the storm to come—about as reliable as the actual weather report.
Ahead of Hurricane Dorian in September 2019, a now-viral Facebook post announced Bessie was coming down. "Charleston people who need an update and rely on the Coburg Cow to tell them... she is coming down tomorrow," reads the post. "I repeat the Coburg Cow is coming down tomorrow… May God have mercy on your souls and enjoy the hurricane parties."
For one commenter, that was all he needed to hear: "Jim Cantore can't compare to the cow."
Development in West Ashley around Bees Ferry Road has been dominated by multifamily growth — a trend the city of Charleston planning director said the city wasn’t expecting when development of annexed areas began in the late 1990s.“Years ago, the assumption was that there was going to be a huge amount of retail demand,” said Christopher Morgan, planning director for Charleston. “There are a couple of new multifamily developments right near ...
Development in West Ashley around Bees Ferry Road has been dominated by multifamily growth — a trend the city of Charleston planning director said the city wasn’t expecting when development of annexed areas began in the late 1990s.
“Years ago, the assumption was that there was going to be a huge amount of retail demand,” said Christopher Morgan, planning director for Charleston. “There are a couple of new multifamily developments right near West Ashley High School on the Glen McConnell Parkway that are on properties that are zoned general business.”
Morgan said that general business in the city allows for 26 units per acre for residential, and the market has responded. Developers who might have invested time and money into office buildings 20 years ago are often choosing multifamily construction.
Early major multifamily developments included Grand Oaks Plantation, built in the late 1990s that added more than 1,400 homes with an entrance from Bees Ferry Road; Hunt Club, built in the early 2000s with approximately 500 homes also off Bees Ferry Road and Carolina Bay, an 1,800-home multifamily development five minutes from Bees Ferry Road.
Smaller multifamily developments currently in the works, according to Morgan, include 38 single-family lots at Verbena Lane and Apiary Lane at the end of U.S. Highway 17 and Bees Ferry Road. Developers recently announced 55 single-family homes off of U.S. 17 on Hughes Lane near the 17 and Bees Ferry Road intersection.
Multifamily development is occurring on both sides of U.S. Highway 17 in the area. Palisades of Charleston apartments, with several hundred units, is nearing completion near the intersection of Main Road and U.S. 17.
With demand from multifamily developments comes with the need for improved road infrastructure. Major road widening projects are in the works to keep up with the number of cars on U.S. 17, Main Road and Bees Ferry Road thoroughfares.
In 2016, road improvement projects were identified by Charleston County to be paid for with the transportation half-cent sales tax. Considered “a project of regional significance,” per county documents, the $195 million road improvements could include a flyover at U.S. Highway 17 at Main Road and widening Main Road from Bees Ferry Road to Betsy Kerrison Parkway.
The first improvement will be for U.S. 17 and Main Road intersection improvements and Main Road improvements from Bees Ferry Road to River Road. Right of way plans for the first segment were expected to be complete at the end of 2020.
Bob Nuttall, managing principal and founder of Lee & Associates Charleston, said road improvement projects move at a considerably slower pace than private development. Nuttall, who specializes in office, retail, industrial, land and investment products, said a better solution to keep road congestion down would be to build denser multifamily developments with neighborhood retail.
“Any private development could go from zero to done in under 24 months, but any government project is going to be three times that long, if not longer,” Nuttall said. “The office, the retail, the warehouse, the multifamily — all that’s being built faster than any roads can ever keep up with, but I think that higher density is one way to help solve that problem.”
Nuttall said there’s no stopping the influx of people moving to the Lowcountry, but higher-density multifamily development, where units are built taller above a ground-floor level of retail and commercial spaces or neighborhood commercial spaces where residents can walk to without getting in their cars is a way to curb road congestion.
“There’s only two directions that you can grow in an area like Charleston — up or out. So, you either have to do the higher density stuff, like what’s happening on Morrison Drive, which I think is the right move, or build out wider,” Nuttall said. “The Glen McConnell Parkway expansion opened the opportunity for easy ingress and egress. And now it’s this kind of gangbusters. People are talking about how Bees Ferry Road already has so much traffic on it at peak times.”
Nuttall said is encouraged by the Medical University of South Carolina moving a clinic into the Citadel Mall in West Ashley and Roper St. Francis opening an Express Care in the area. He said that keeps needed services nearby, which reduces commute times.
He said West Ashley could benefit from beautifying its roads, similar to road beautification surrounding Park Circle in North Charleston.
“There really doesn’t seem to be a comprehensive plan (for West Ashley),” Nuttall said. “If there was more density, people wouldn’t have to drive so far to get places and do things. The city of Charleston really wants to grow, and I think it’s a great spot for them to embrace it.”
With the Charleston population growing more than 18% since 2010, Glenn McConnell Parkway now has more volume than the roadway is able to handle. The situation will only get worse through 2040, according to an assessment by Charleston County.In the next two years, the county will be addressing the issue by widening the four-lane road to six lanes, adding seven bus stops, improving turn lanes and landscaping, adding a new stoplight, and building a shared pedestrian and bike path.The improvements will span 2.1 miles from Bees Ferr...
With the Charleston population growing more than 18% since 2010, Glenn McConnell Parkway now has more volume than the roadway is able to handle. The situation will only get worse through 2040, according to an assessment by Charleston County.
In the next two years, the county will be addressing the issue by widening the four-lane road to six lanes, adding seven bus stops, improving turn lanes and landscaping, adding a new stoplight, and building a shared pedestrian and bike path.
The improvements will span 2.1 miles from Bees Ferry Road through Magwood Drive — the busy corner between Home Depot and Chick-fil-A. Charleston County officials said the construction will take two years, with an expected completion of March 2024.
Herbert Nimz, project manager with Charleston County, and David Wertz, construction engineering and inspection project manager for Charleston County’s project consultant, Infrastructure Consulting & Engineering, led a March 21 public hearing at the Bees Ferry West Ashley Library to update the public about the Glenn McConnell Widening Project. Council members, including District 2 Councilman Kevin Shealy, District 6 Councilman Kylon Middleton and District 7 Councilman Brantley Moody, also attended the meeting.
As a line of community members snaked through the library waiting to sign in and fill nearly every seat before the meeting began, several attendees voiced their frustrations. The biggest concern seemed to be over noise that a six-lane road might cause.
Before Nimz was halfway through his presentation, the group was already firing off questions and expressing concerns about noise, flooding mitigation in communities, lack of sidewalks for the proposed bus paths and how the new Spinx gas station at the corner of Wildcat Boulevard and Glenn McConnell Parkway will impact traffic into West Ashley High School.
Officials first identified that Glenn McConnell Parkway was problematic in the 2016 half-cent sales tax referendum. Two years later, the first public meeting was held, asking for input on future plans. In January 2020, officials held a second meeting at West Ashley High School and two months later published a final report.
The Glenn McConnell Widening Project received project permits in 2021, and a construction contract was awarded earlier this year.
Chris Ebel, a home appraiser and West Ashley resident, worries officials are not widening the parkway to alleviate traffic, but to add even more cars to the road.
Since the 2020 meeting, Lennar’s Grand Bees has developed three phases of new residential homes on Bees Ferry Road, a Harris Teeter has opened down the street, and a new apartment complex is almost ready to open.
“Everybody’s doing the same thing. Let’s just get more cars, build 300 more apartments, and now we’re going to need eight lanes,” she said. “By then, this highway’s going to be in everybody’s living room.”
Nimz said many of the thousands of new homes built in the last two years should have been accounted for in the design process when the projects were under development.
“We have to do our best to assume growth ... especially because we live in an area that people want to live in, and that number’s pretty high,” Nimz said.
He added that while he doesn’t live in West Ashley and can’t speak for those who do, “there’s a limit to what you can do as far as preventing future development. That’s not what this (meeting) is about.”
A concern repeated throughout the meeting was the sound disruption caused by the current four-lane road and what that would evolve into with the addition of two more lanes and seven bus stops.
Several attendees, including Ebel, said that they can hear cars zipping down Glen McConnell Parkways as late as 11 p.m.
In addition to suggesting a lower enforced speed limit — the limit will be reduced during construction, then returned to 55 mph after completion — residents at the meeting requested a sound barrier.
A sound study was performed in 2019, Nimz said, but results did not determine the necessity for a wall. According to the Glenn McConnell Parkway Highway Traffic Noise Technical Memorandum published in April 2020, only one of the four communities studied met the requirements for a sound barrier; however, aerial power lines permanently prevent a structure from being erected along that portion of the corridor.
Other community members requested another study to be done, one individual asking if her homeowners’ associations could perform another study out of pocket. Nimz and Wertz said industry standards were followed to collect the data.
To accommodate expansion, construction will push outward to create a third westbound lane, while eastbound, construction will push inside toward the grass median.
Throughout the 2.1-mile plan, four bus stops with pullover lanes will be added westbound, with three added eastbound. Each bus stop will include a shelter, bench, trash receptacle and bicycle rack.
On the east side of the parkway, a multi-use path between 8 and 12 feet wide will run from Bees Ferry Road to Glenn McConnell Parkway. At its closest point, the path will be a few feet off the main road. At its furthest, the path will have a 10-foot buffer between traffic with Jersey barriers in some areas. In others, the path will be separated from the main road by existing ditches.
The westbound side will have short walkways from the bus stops back into the nearest community, but officials were stumped when asked if further sidewalks would be added westbound to connect stops to other communities or if crosswalks would be added to allow bus travelers to cross Glenn McConnell Parkway and connect to transportation.
Nimz said planners did their best to make connections to existing facilities. For the bus stop at Goodwill Way, he said, “You may have to travel that backroad and then walk up to Mary Ader.”
Down the road at the corner of Glenn McConnell Parkway and William E. Murray Boulevard, a four-building, 341-unit apartment complex has been proposed adjacent to West Ashley High School. A new Spinx gas station is already under construction at the corner of Wildcat Boulevard and the parkway.
Nimz said the Spinx will have right-in, right-out entrances and exits, meaning traffic leaving on the Wildcat Boulevard side would only have the option to turn right, pull a U-turn or circle around the school, and then come back out to Glenn McConnell Parkway.
West Ashley resident Craig Peterkin worried how that will affect traffic, especially during school drop-off and pickup, and during rush hour.
“When those plans were originally made, was consideration given for the new 300-unit complex and the gas station going in on that corner?” Peterkin said.
Nimz said the Spinx plans would have been accounted for as he doesn’t believe the S.C. Department of Transportation would bring in a development that would negatively affect the designs and “throw off the whole project.”
“In coordination with the DOT, they would have gotten with us in plan-development,” Nimz said. “This project has been in design since 2018, so we’ve had ongoing conversations with the DOT. Anything that comes after that, they would have to work with DOT to get approval for access.”
Eight intersections will be improved in the next two years, including the intersection of Bees Ferry Road and Glenn McConnell Parkway. Plans there call for signal modifications, an additional left turn lane, sidewalk connection and improvements, new shared-use path, enhanced landscaping.
Bees Ferry Road will not incur any enhancements beyond the intersection once traffic flows onto the road. Nimz also clarified there will not be improvements to the right turn lane onto Glenn McConnell Parkway.
The parkway will be completely paved by the end of the project.
Phase 1 of 3 on the construction timeline includes shoulder work from Bees Ferry Road to Magwood Drive, prep work for the installation of an additional westbound travel lane and minor drainage modifications.
Any work requiring lane closures will be done at night during off-peak hours.
“We plan to give quarterly updates about status of the project to be shared with HOA presidents in the area and dispersed to residents, accordingly,” he said.

Did you know that the largest balloon retailer in North America lives right here at home in West Ashley?
As a mother of five with a plethora of experience planning and hosting events for her family and local community, Charleston Balloon Company’s Senior Designer and CEO, Jill Shortreed has been active in the event and balloon industry for nearly 25 years. She is now an industry leader and public speaker; teaching other small business owners how to take their business to the next level—just as she did. Each day, both Jill and her team at Charleston Balloon Company strive to change the way that the world views and experiences balloons.
“Balloons have a place in the event industry and the best event planners that we work with do not make it an afterthought but part of the initial planning process” states Jill.
You may now be asking yourself, what is Charleston Balloon Company? Charleston Balloon Company is not a party store. You will not find cups, plates, candles, cards, or candy. What you will find is balloons, and only balloons. As the largest balloon retailer in North America, you will find a store filled with over 7,000 products, 75 different colors of latex balloons, and hundreds of new designs on display in their shop and across their social media.
Specializing in only balloons makes the Charleston Balloon team masters at crafting event decor that will elevate a birthday, bachelorette weekend, or any event into an unforgettable memory. Their Instagram-worthy decor makes them in high demand with clients booking up to a year in advance. Their balloon arches, over the top balloon arrangements, and personalized confetti balloons continue to make them the number one go to balloon delivery service.
Jill says, “If you want balloons, we make it happen. Sometimes it feels like we can defy the impossible with our balloons!”
And that’s no exaggeration.
Charleston Balloon Company truly defies what people expect from balloon arrangements. Some of their favorite events include transitioning a large, empty banquet room for a sweet 16 into an under the sea spectacle filled with bubbles & mermaid themed decor; a pool party where guests entered through a giant shark’s mouth, and ceiling filled with a stunning assortment of silver balloons for a private, corporate dinner.
“We love taking balloons to a different level from what people think balloons are,” Jill says. “My favorite thing to do is put balloons where people least expect them.”
The multiple large-scale balloon installations and event inquiries that Charleston Balloon receives every day require a team of experienced balloon artists and professionals to make it happen. And they have their process of granting clients’ wishes down to a science.
Depending on the magnitude of the requested decor, clients often come into the shop for a consultation with a vision in mind. The Charleston Balloon Company team asks a few questions to get into the client’s head to begin a collaborative design process together. Larger-scale events can even receive a digital mockup of their decor, and the Charleston Balloon team will bring that digital rendering to life to make the client’s balloon dreams come true.
While it’s rewarding to bring a vision to life with balloons and a bit of magic, the most rewarding part of Jill’s job is creating an emotional experience with balloons.
“Even if someone is having a horrible day or is ordering balloons for a sad reason, a balloon creates an emotional happiness that no other product creates,” she says. “When a child runs up to find balloons at their front door, the amount of emotion attached to that is indescribable.”
With internationally-recognized credits, multiple prestigious awards, and a portfolio full of large and small-scale projects for both private and public events; Charleston Balloon Company continues to pave the way for the balloon industry each and every day with their highly requested services.
Today, the family-based, independent, woman-owned company is thriving with hundreds of events per month and a wide variety of clients. From foil shaped numbers and latex balloons to large arrangements, installations, and much more, Charleston Balloon Company truly does it all, and does it well.
