Local mattress company hits 30
Roger Kelley, manager of the newest Mattress Warehouse store in South Charleston's Riverwalk Mall, has the store ready for not just its opening, but the company's 30th anniversary celebration, which took place at the store Wednesday evening.
Kim Knopf opened her first mattress store on South Charleston's D Street in November 1983. Since then, her company has grown to more than 150 stores in six states. She said she was happy to be back in South Charleston to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary at its newest store in the Riverwalk Mall.
