A new mattress franchise is now open in the city of Jasper.

Pete and Kriss Massat, along with their son, Nick Dills, hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday at their new America’s Mattress store. The store is located in the 400 block of South Newton Street right next to Papa John’s Pizza.

Dills says the idea for the new store came about after attending a show and finding out about a new opportunity:

Dills says the family hopes the new business is a viable option for residents in the community:

The Massats also own Sternberg’s Furniture in Jasper. The family says this America’s Mattress store is the first of several locations that are being planned across Southern Indiana.

There will be two employees at the new Jasper location. The store will be open from 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, 10 am to 6 pm on Saturdays, and 10 am to 4 pm on Sundays. You can visit AmericasMattress.com/Jasper.
