Mattress retailer Innovative Mattress Solutions has purchased Huntsville-based Mattress King, the companies announced today.

"We are thrilled to continue growing into new markets such as Alabama while expanding in our existing markets as well," said iMS owner and CEO Kim Knopf.

The 19-store Mattress King deal gives iMS 150 stores in six states with more than 400 employees. iMS has been operating for about 30 years as Mattress Warehouse, Sleep Outfitters and Mattresses Unlimited in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee. It will keep the Mattress King brand in Alabama.
