Renovations are under way at the former Fazoli's restaurant located at 244 Henry Boulevard in the Southern Crossing shopping center. Fazoli's has been closed for over a year.
Justin Williams, City of Statesboro, Planning and Housing Administrator has confirmed that the renovations have been permitted for a Mattress Firm store in the former Fazoli's.
Mattress Firm has been looking at entering the Statesboro market for some time.
From their website, they describe their difference, "For the past 90 years, Mattress Firm and our family of companies have been delivering better sleep by matching you with your perfect mattress at the perfect price. What started as a few stores has grown into America’s largest specialty mattress store, with more than 2,400 neighborhood stores in 49 states."
Grice Connect does not have a projected opening date at this time.
