Until I recently had cause to note it, I never realized just how many mattress stores there are in Columbia. Two Notch Road in particular seems infested with them. This one however was on Beltline across from Richland Mall in a little strip with a Moe's a vitamin shop and some sort of hair salon. I usually hit that Moe's twice a week, but it was a while before I noticed the mattress place was gone.
I'm not sure what happened, but I'd hazard a guess that in the current economic climate, people reckon they can put up with that lumpy old mattress another year. For that matter, the storefront seems rather small to allow much of a mattress selection to be displayed.
