Two new businesses apply for space in Ammon shopping center

While we may be in the summer doldrums, here are a few retail developments worth reporting, picked up during a recent visit to the Ammon City office. Select Comfort has applied for a building permit to locate a new store in the 1,500 square feet on Hitt Road formerly occupied by Diamond Gallery (in the building that also houses Rumbi Grill and Red Wing Shoes.) The company's signature product is the Sleep Number bed, an adjustable air mattress that features a "sleep number" setting that adjusts the firmness of the mattress. Going up to 100, the higher the number the firmer the mattress. Each side of full size and larger beds has its own chamber to allow for separate adjustment. There are different models of Sleep Number beds with various features, and Select Comfort has introduced a memory foam version of the Sleep Number mattress as well. Also in that building, Complete Nutrition is applying for a permit to remodel 1,477 square feet. A nutritional supplement franchiser, the company started in 2004. Stores employ personal trainers, strength coaches and other fitness professionals to help customers develop personalized programs. There is one other store in Idaho, in Twin Falls, and there are several in Montana and Utah.
