Shakopee Mayor Brad Tabke tweeted a welcome message to My Pillow on Wednesday, the Shakopee Patch reports.

In June, Lindell told the Business Journal he predicts sales will reach $150 million this year, up from $3 million just two years ago.

The Business Journal also reports My Pillow is launching its own stores. It opened a location in Rosedale Center and has seven other retail stores in the works.
