On August 27, Village Mattress opened its doors in Zionsville at 1231 W. Oak St.
For years, owner Chris Plopper passed the closed building – formerly the site of Movie Gallery – with the same thought simmering on his mind.
“The mattress industry is underserved in the area,” he said. “If I don’t do it, someone else will.” Plopper investigated the process in February, and Village Mattress was born.
As a resident of Zionsville, Plopper is excited to be here as a locally-owned and operated company, which fits in well with Village values. He brings with him 12 years of experience in the furniture and mattress industry and a simple customer-oriented message.
“My goal is to help anyone who walks in the store get a better night’s sleep,” he said.
Plopper accomplishes this goal through a variety of product lines and price points from Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster, Pure Latex Bliss, to a more economical brand, Southerland.
Rest is critical to productivity and often prevented because of sleep issues.
“People come in generally because of discomfort,” said Plopper. “Sleep impacts our whole existence – our energy, our memories, our attitudes. I’m here to help them.”
