The need for a business elusively devoted to quality mattress products drew Henry County native Bob Bush to Glasgow but it was the fishing opportunities at Barren River Reservoir that sealed the deal.
Bush is the owner operator of a new Glasgow business, Cloud 9 Mattress located at 409 Samson Street.
Although a native Kentuckian who worked many years as a fleet manager of a large company, American Builders, in Louisville, Bush actually came to Glasgow from Arkansas where he was in the mattress business.
Bush got into the business nearly five years ago doing warranty work but found it so interesting that he decided to open a store of his own.
Bush looked at other towns and finally settled on Glasgow because the community didn’t have a retail business that handled only mattresses and because he enjoys fishing and knew Barren Reservoir offered excellent sport fishing.
At Cloud 9, Bush features Restonic and Therapedic brands from twin to king size in just about any variation the customer desires. “I compare buying a mattress to buying a quality pair of shoes. You want something that fits you personally and something that will wear well and last a long time, “ Bush said. “I advise anyone purchasing a mattress to take there time and make sure what they buy fits their needs.”
Cloud 9 offers an attractive selection of comfort levels from “memory foam” to the latest space age latex. “Each material feels different. I want to fit the mattress to each individual’s taste,” Bush said.
Although he carries a complete inventory, Bush said he can receive special orders within a week. The store is open Tuesday - Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Bush said even though the store is closed on Sunday and Monday, he will set appointments on those two days for the convenience of customers if need be.
The store can be reached by telephone at 270-629-5583, by cell phone at 270-590-1101 or by fax at 270-629-4526.
Bush said he has been impressed with the friendliness of people in the community and is looking forward to being able to help with their bedding needs.
