WICHITA — A prime piece of Wichita property is once again leased.
The former Ethan Allen and Drinnin's Home Furnishings building at 416 N. Rock Road has been vacant since late 2007.
The Mattress Hub is now moving into the space with a 15,000-square-foot showroom.
The company "is getting ready to open the ultimate relaxation destination," says Mark Barrientos, who is partners in the business with Ryan Baty.

"We feel like it's one of the premier pieces of real estate in the whole city of Wichita," Barrientos says. He thinks it "will give us real good visibility and easy access to our customer base."
As Barrientos told Have You Heard? last month, the 11,000-square-foot Mattress Hub at Towne East Square will convert to a smaller express store.
Barrientos says the expanded new space on Rock will allow for more mattress models and the addition of bedroom sets, including special-order and custom-made furniture.
