Fill Station comes to Canada
NANAIMO, British Columbia – The Fill Station, a kiosk that allows customers to build customised pillows has opened its first international location at John’s Bedroom Barn, a two-unit furniture and mattress retailer based here.
Based in Spring Hill, Tennessee, Fill Station has 30 locations in the United States. John’s is their first Canadian franchise.
“We’re excited to have John’s Bedroom Barn as our first international partner,” Vannie Morisey, vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement. “We know their customers are looking for personalised products that enable better, more restful sleep, and that’s just what John’s Bedroom Barn will be able to provide with the Fill Station Pillow Kiosk in their store.”
Founded out of the want to fundamentally change sleep for the better, Fill Station enables people to make, refill, or remake customized pillows from scratch. First-time customers select the size of their cotton pillow shell (available in Standard, Queen, and King with options for children) and then create their own custom level of support and comfort by choosing any combination of Super Soft Poly Foam, Buckwheat Hulls, Shredded Memory Foam, Shredded Latex and/or Goose Down.
Customers can choose from an assortment of pillow covers and protectors to meet their needs, and can even purchase aromatherapy pillow sprays made from 100% natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants for a better night’s sleep. Not only is there a wide variety of options available to customers, but Fill Station offers a five-year guarantee; in the five-years post-purchase, a customer can return to any kiosk for an annual re-fluffing and adjustment.
“Fill Station has been so well received throughout the U.S. as we can’t wait to see the response in Canada,” stated Arthur Watkins, founder of Fill Station. “People are increasingly looking for products that are customised for their needs. Through Fill Station, brick and mortar stores are being enabled to provide those kinds of products while building relationships with those customers.”
