WICHITA — The Derby Mattress Hub is moving to the Derby Marketplace at North Rock Road and Tall Tree Road.

"We just think the growth of Derby is fantastic," says Ryan Baty, who founded the Wichita company with Mark Barrientos in 2008. "There's a lot of retail opportunities out of that new development."

The current store, which licensee Sharon Kinney calls an outlet store, is at 105 S. Baltimore Ave.

The new store, which will open by Memorial Day, will be in 4,000 square feet in front of Target in the same center where Capitol Federal and Cox Communications are.

Kinney likely will still be involved with the new Mattress Hub, but it will now be a corporate store.

"Our goal is we really want to maximize ... the mattress business in Derby," Baty says. "If we brought the corporate store down there with the corporate concept ... I think Derby would be better served."

He says that means a "very upscale, very spacious" store.

"We also have further expansion into Kansas City that's happening and in southwest Missouri," Baty says.
