    At least they are not junking up the lot on the corner of Little Creek and Granby Street. But really, not one response from the residents to this news was in favor of another mattress store in Wards Corner. We had the chance to make this a go-to place………….instead, the powers in city hall do as they please.

    As it stands now, we have Sleepy’s next to Harris Teeter. And Mattress Firm is planning to move into BP Gas Station location (Corner of Little Creek and Granby). And now, Mattress Factory will be moving into Mrs. Dalis-Martone deserted property. We should take all of these business’s mattresses and put them in the parking lots. Now jump up and down on the mattresses. Do you know what you are doing? Being stupid like these mattress companies trying to see how much business one can take away from the other. This is so stupid and trashy. Why is the Wards Corner area allowing this to happen?

    Another Mattress Store? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…how exciting. Why not a Restaurant? A Bike shop? Anything but a Mattress store.It could be worse, it could be another Drug Store.

    I go to Harris Teeter a few times a week and I have yet to see a customer in Sleepy;s.. 3 mattress stores in the same area is just ridiculous.

  5. Angie A says:

    And so, one, two, or all of them will close (3 in one shopping center IS ridiculous). If they are the only businesses interested in setting up shop, perhaps someone needs to find out why? Why can’t a decent location with the ability to draw customers across the economic spectrum draw a wider variety of businesses? What’s the problem? Rent too high? Bad marketing plan? How about a Tuesday Morning? A nice Hair salon/spa? A skate shop? Bring back Rhom Thai? An Apple store? Platos closet? Gourmet Gang/Taste Unlimited, or similar sandwich/lunch place. Small start up business? Something is WRONG that nobody is interested in filling these empty store fronts at a busy intersection like this. What is it?

    Come on- we can’t get any other stores than mattress ones?

      I still can’t figure out how there is room for a store on the gas station lot.
