WICHITA — There's going to be a new addition to Mattress Mile.
That's how Mark Barrientos refers to the stretch of West Kellogg where several stores sell mattresses. Next year, that will include his and business partner Ryan Baty's Mattress Hub.
They're going to open in a new 7,000-square-foot building in Westgate Market.
"They're actually building a brand-new building for us right next to the Office Depot," Barrientos says.

He says that area is a great mix of shops — including competitors — to be a part of.
This will make the fourth Mattress Hub in Wichita, including express stores at Towne East Square and Towne West Square and the new showroom on North Rock Road in the former Ethan Allen space.
The Wichita-based company is opening its 10th store on Dec. 26 in Manhattan.
"It was a great year," Barrientos says of the company's growth.
He's got even bigger expectations for 2011 with a planned seven to 10 new stores in Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
