Mattresses R Us opens a new store in Georgetown and was welcomed to a grand opening by the Brown County Chamber of Commerce

GEORGETOWN — Mattresses R Us in Georgetown is only two weeks old, but according to general manager Jamie Coburn, business is booming.

After holding a soft opening, Coburn, his family, and Mattresses R Us welcomed the Brown County Chamber of Commerce for a grand opening on Friday, Sept/ 11.

“It’s been tremendous,” Coburn said of business so far. “We’re just absolutely amazed at how much business and support we’ve been getting. Not just from Georgetown but from all the communities. We’re getting a lot of people in already.”

Coburn, who is a part-time police officer with the village of Georgetown and a manager with Fujitec America in Cincinnati, was encouraged to open the new mattress store by a friend of his in Kentucky who runs one as well.

“I wanted to do something with my family, and I’ve got a dear friend (Jackie Johnson) in Somerset, Kentucky that’s been in the business for 25 years, and he offered to help us,” Coburn said. “We thought there was a need for it in this area, since the large one closed in Mt. Orab a few years back. So far it’s been great.”

Coburn said later that he doubled his two-week sales goal in just one week.

As Coburn mentioned, it’s a family operation at the business. His daughter Kristen is set to run the store full time, with Coburn splitting time between Georgetown and Fujitec, and his sons will help deliver the beds to the customers.

“It’s another business that’s opened up in an existing building in town,” Brown County Commissioner Barry Woodruff said. “Things are starting to be positive for Georgetown, and whatever’s good for Georgetown is good for the county.”

Georgetown Mayor Dale Cahall agreed that it was an exciting moment for the village.

“Of course every business is important in the village,” Cahall said. “Any time when there can be new people opening up businesses is always exciting.”
