Mattress Express to Open Location in the Area

Kevin Fear brings his Watertown store to Onondaga County

    Three little words have made Kevin Fear a Central New York icon: free, free, free.

    Fear’s advertisements for Universe Cellular and Dish seem to be everywhere these days. He’s been called “Billy Junior” because he is second only to car-selling giant Billy Fuccillo in dominating the local commercial airwaves.

    “Free,” it seems, is the next “huge.”

    “It is amazing what one word can do,” Fear, 43, said. during an interview at the Tim Horton’s restaurant near his North Syracuse store. “When people call me Billy Junior, I take it as a compliment. I’ve always tried to keep things simple, and that’s what we’ve done.”

    Now Fear is getting ready for a new move: to bring the new mattress company he opened in Watertown to Onondaga County.
