15 Mile Trip for Re-Fluffs

Even after knee replacement, this customer drives 15 miles to have his pillow re-fluffed. This time he wanted remove a pound from one pillow and add it to the other. His excitement that he enjoys the service and pillows is what makes the program more superior to most retailers.

He mentioned that he will be coming back with his son that lives out of town to build him a pillow. This is the testimony that is received by many customers that have a Fill Station® Pillow.

Taste of Pillow Customization

The creation of a Fill Station® Pillow is similar to going into an ice cream shop with many assortments of flavors and toppings. Think about a pillow in your mind being made of Crush ice cream. “The flavors offered aren’t always the same, but Crush offers tropical flavors like mango, pineapple, papaya, and strawberry. Crush also offers combined flavors such as strawberry banana, mango orange, and coconut with ice cream” (Gloria Knott, 2019). I bet your mouth is salivating.

The Fill Station® Custom Pillows will have your neck, shoulders, and head wanting to feel the taste of support and comfort every night. A Fill Station® Pillow can be built with distinctive fillers that provide everything you are looking for into a pillow. You can say, “Add a little bit of more memory foam.” This is the confidence to know you are getting what you want. 

With confidence, you know you can eat ice cream hard or soft, but you have the choice. You can sprinkle chocolate or melt chocolate on your ice cream. Similarly, a Fill Station® Pillow can be made soft or firm. You can choose the filler that will help the pillow melt to your head while you sleep or feel as firm as you want. 

As a Fill Station® Pillow Customer, you do not have to be stuck with one kind of pillow. Customization is greatly appreciated by many.

The Roaring Pillow Under Your Head by Arthur Watkins

It’s obvious by title I am talking about your current pillow. Sometimes we forget, or your body becomes immune to how bad your pillow is until you willfully try a new one. A constant unleveling of support can be a long hinderance through your day. For example, at work you are staring at your computer. You grab your neck because it’s fatigued, and in pain from looking down at the screen. Imagine what a good pillow with proper support could have benefited you in these actions on a 5 day work week. 

A good pillow would support your 6 – 8 hours of beauty sleep. When you finally wake, you feel refreshed and you feel as if your neck can lift 10 pounds for 5 hours. When you are in front of that computer screen again, that fatigue and pain is not as noticeable as any other day when you slept on that unnoticeable bad pillow. Remember, you did not notice how bad it was until you slept on a better one. 

When you are feeling your best, you can defeat your day with a big roar of excitement. You are noticed and your alertness is at its peak. You get that feeling you can wear 30 gold chains around your neck and not notice the weight. This is the true feeling of what a great pillow can do for you.

Fill Station Expands into Canada

Fill Station® Expands into Canada

Opens First Canadian location in John’s Bedroom Barn in Nanaimo

Nanaimo, British Columbia (October 16, 2017) — The Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk is a unique kiosk that allows customers to build customized pillows.  Fill Station announced its expansion into Canada. With 30 locations in the United States, Fill Station’s first international location is John’s Bedroom Barn in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

“We’re excited to have John’s Bedroom Barn as our first international partner,” stated Vannie Morisey, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fill Station. “We know their customers are looking for personalized 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 percent pure, 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 US 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 customized 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.”

ABOUT FILL STATION® PILLOW KIOSK

The Fill Station Pillow program is designed to allow consumers to create their own pillow by choosing from any combination of super soft poly foam, buckwheat hulls, shredded memory foam, shredded latex and/or goose down. The program comes with an assortment of pillow covers and protectors designed to meet specific needs of the consumer. Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk offers retailers a pillow program that drives traffic and builds a repeat customer base.

 

ABOUT JOHN’S BEDROOM BARN

After many years of working in the waterbed industry, it became apparent that the time had come for a different type of furniture store. A store that didn’t do the usual gimmicks of sales, negotiating prices, free this and free that: everybody knows that nothing is really free. The founders of John’s Bedroom Barn were tired of buying an item only to find it on sale the next week, or have the commission salesperson say they could “sharpen the pencil if we were ready to buy right now.”

Since opening 1989, John’s Bedroom Barn has worked really hard to solve these problems and more. When you shop with them, you’ll get assistance from someone that cares about your needs, not a commission. There’s no pressure to “buy today” because every item is priced as low as they can sell it and it won’t go on sale. If you’re having trouble sleeping, or just need a new bed, their trained sleep specialists will look at your individual needs and build a mattress system just for you — even if they build one side of the mattress differently than the other! These are just some of the reasons they encourage you to visit John’s Bedroom Barn when it’s time for your next furniture investment.

Fill Station Launches First Crowdfunding Campaign

Spring Hill, TN (October 1, 2017) — Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk, a unique kiosk that allows customers to build personalized pillows, today launched their first crowdfunding campaign – Fill Station Pillow Kiosk Next Level Launch – to help them expand upon its current 30, in-store kiosks.

The Fill Station Pillow Kiosk was designed by entrepreneur, retailer, and philanthropist, Arthur Watkins. He’d been in the mattress industry for years before starting Fill Station, but was always having to change up his inventory trying to find pillows that were a good fit for his customers. Wanting to make a real change to help people and give back to a broader community, he started Fill Station to enable people to get enough, restful sleep through pillows made specifically for their individual needs.

Fill Station is the first of its kind program that enables people to make, refill, or remake customized pillows from scratch. First-time customers select the size of their cotton pillow shell. Next, they 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. The pillows are available in three sizes (Standard, Queen, and King) and options for children. 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 percent pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants for a better night’s sleep.

“Through our Indiegogo Campaign, we are offering truly one-of-a-kind rewards and are looking forward to the great products and experiences people will have through pledging to this campaign,” stated Arthur Watkins, President and Inventor of Fill Station Pillow Kiosk.

Rewards being offered to those who pledge to Fill Station Pillow Kiosk – Next Level Launch include Fill Station’s Pillow Mist Collection, a trip to Nashville to build a pillow with the Inventor, Arthur Watkins, and a Fill Station party for 60 pillows delivered to your event in your community! All of the rewards such as warranties and expected delivery date, can be found on Fill Station’s Indiegogo page.

“Powered by the funds we receive through our Indiegogo campaign, we will be able to grow our research and development efforts, increase marketing efforts, staffing, and attend even more industry trade show and markets to connect with more industry retailers,” continued Watkins.

“Consumers are in need of the Fill Pillow product and, unfortunately, brick and mortar stores have been in decline, so we see making sure people get better sleep and the growing challenges of brick and mortar retailers as a great marriage. By having a Fill Station kiosk, our retail partners can drive foot traffic to their stores and create meaningful connections to their customers and community.”

Trent Bedding does their Big Reveal Today!

Trent Ranburger, the owner of Trent Bedding, does his Big Reveal of the Fill Station Pillow Kiosk Live through Social Media. The Fill Station Group wants to thank Trent Bedding for becoming a licensee, and we are excited about our partnership.

 


We are now licensing the Fill Station Pillow Kiosk Program to mattress and furniture stores.

The Fill Station Pillow Kiosk program was created in a mattress store with an idea that customers replace their pillows on average of 6 months because they go flat, or they do not feel the same because of a difference of 10 pounds of body weight difference through human life cycles that changes the feel of their pillow. I wanted a program that does not eliminate a customer for 3 years, but a program that branded my store and keep my customers engaged.

I created the Fill Station because I wanted to attract more customers into my showroom, retain the relationship with my customers to build my business, and I wanted increase my attachment rate with 100 different variant of pillows that can be built based on how much the pillow is filled, so the customer can get exactly what they wanted.

I found out that if your floor were limited in pillows, the customer would shop at big box stores for pillows. With our program, the customer gets a Free 5 Year Re-Fluffing and Adjustment Guarantee. This way, the customer will visit your store for maintenance on their pillow similar to car dealership. I figure that if they are visiting my store often, the customer will talk to people in their social circle about my store. Has it worked? Yes, since 2014 I have increased my business by 145% and selling an average of $8,700 in pillows a month. We have made it fun for the customer.

Start winning against your competitors

 

In the world of the mattress business, larger mattress companies are getting stronger, and the small family owned mattress stores are shrinking. As a small family owned mattress store, I can relate to stresses of competitors popping up around me trying to squeeze me out. As a family business, I had to be innovative to compete against online stores, big box retailers, and large mattress chains. Just like you, I set in my mattress store wondering what I can do to see more customers and see these customers more often.

The Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk was invented by me, Arthur Watkins, a veteran that has been in the mattress industry for 20 years. I own Mattress Inn in a small town called Spring Hill, TN with less than 35k population. I started winning with my invention by creating pillow building events for kids, partnering with Chiropractors to build pillows for their patients, offer my customers a reason to return to my showroom more often, and I sell more than 300 pillows a month.

My competitors are laughing and the industry has ignored this phenomena. What they do not realize is that I have more than 6000 Fill Station® customers using my Re-Fluffing and Adjustment Service, customers who attended my events are buying new mattresses, I am upgrading my competitor customers to better mattresses less than 3 years old, and customers are referring other customers to build pillows but end up buying new mattresses too. Mattress Inn is up 180% over last year.

As my wife says, “Only the small things you do count.” A pillow is a small price versus the price tag of a mattress, but a pillow is replaced on an average of 6 months. Our predictions are that our clients will need our Free Re-Fluffing and Adjustment Service more often. When you see your clients often, your relationship with them will help you sell more products in your store. Would you like to capture more customers for your store and make more money?

This program is design to help you build relationships with Chiropractors & Physical Therapists in your local area. The CPTP program can help you gain more customers for your store, and grow your business. Patients that are seeking professional help with neck issues, or also the same customer that is having trouble finding a good pillow. Once they become a Fill Station® Pillow customer, they will become your loyal customer. A loyal customer can increase sales in your store.

The following is the program we will offer to Chiropractors & Physical Therapists through the licensee program in your area.


Now You Can Offer CUSTOM PILLOWS for Each Unique Patient

Fill Station® Pillow Chiropractic and Physical Therapy

Partners Program

Starts June 8, 2015

 

Your patients are completely frustrated. They can’t find the right pillow to relieve their neck pain. Or to help keep their back aligned. Or to give them better sleep.

They search high and low for the ‘best’ pillow.

They look at the big box retailers like Wal-Mart and the home specialty stores like Bed Bath & Beyond. And they spend hours online, scouring websites and ads.

Their problem? After all the pillows they see, they end up just totally confused!

The ‘Best’ Pillow

Each sales pitch claims that their pillow is the best. But that can’t be right, because as you know, every single person is different. Your patients’ bodies, injuries, mattress, and sleeping preferences are each completely unique to that individual.

They won’t find their pillow solution at a big box retailer, a specialty store, or even online. They may try, but once they buy, they can’t return and they can’t exchange. So they ask you, the professional. And, until now, even you haven’t had access to the best solution.

The best solution is to build each patient a custom pillow.

 

Partner Program

fs_large

The Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk now offers a Partner Program to build custom pillows for your patients.

After you become a Partner in the Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Partner Program, you send your patients to the kiosk in our store. We take it from there.

They come into the store, and we help them build a custom pillow that addresses their unique combination of needs. We discuss their sleeping concerns (Aching neck or back? Side, stomach or back sleeper? Etc.)

When we understand their needs, we help them choose a pillow mix that addresses those needs. That includes choices about the outer case, type of fill and firmness. Your clients get the exact combination they want.

 

We Build Their Custom Pillow

Once these decisions are made, we build that exact pillow right then and there – on the spot – in about 5 minutes.

Now, if they go home and for any reason it’s not quite right, they just come back in to the store and we make it right. We can add or remove fill, or change the combination of fill. The best part? That pillow can be adjusted at any time.

And it works for children, too!

Complete customer satisfaction is our #1 priority.

Free 5 Year Re-Fluffing & Adjustment Guarantee

Every pillow comes with our unique Free 5 Year Re-Fluffing & Adjustment Guarantee.

  • Once your Pillow is built, you can come back to have it adjusted. An adjustment is us adding more filler to your pillow or taking some filler out to make the pillow more comfortable for you.
  • For five years, you can bring your pillow back to Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk every year for FREE Re-Fluffing. This process is sending your filler back through our machine, so that your pillow feels refreshed and new.

As a Partner you benefit by your patients’ satisfaction and healing, and by sharing in the revenues of the pillow sale.

 

Partner Program – How it Works

2015-05-28 12.17.08

As a Partner in the Fill Station® Pillow Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Partner Program, the Partner gets two sample neck pillows for display, and 10 free empty shells to sell to patients with Fill Station® Packaging.

After you demonstrate the pillow, you will sell your patient an empty shell for each pillow they want to customize. Each empty shell sells for $10 and up. The patient then comes into the Fill Station® Pillow Kiosk to have them filled. Fill Station® charges the patient only for the fill, according to the published price per pound.

After we’ve built their custom Fill Station® Pillow, you can ask your patient to bring it to your next appointment. Take a look at how they lie with it in their sleeping position. Assess the ‘fit’ with your specific long term goals. Now you have something to work with to really help them in between appointments, too!

 

Partner Program – Product Design:

The Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Partner Program uses the Fill Station® Bolster Neck Pillow, with the following features, especially designed with Professionals in mind – for their patients who need specific support:

  • The Fill Station® Bolster Neck Pillow can be built of Shredded Natural Latex or Shredded Memory Foam.
  • The Bolster is designed to reduce stress on your neck by supporting your head at the correct alignment while you sleep on your side.
  • You can flex and bend the neck pillow for increased support. It has a roll feature to offer more cradling neck support for back sleepers.
  • If you sleep on your stomach, you can sleep on your stomach by rotating the pillow around to the lower sleeping side.
  • The Bolster is designed to keep the weight of your head off your shoulder; relieving the pain from the middle of your back and reducing the stress in your neck.

“My patients have always asked me for pillow recommendations. So I’ve looked at a lot of pillows. I always wanted to find one that offered some structure, was comfortable and affordable.

“When Arthur told me about Fill Station® Pillows – the materials, cost and service – I thought, “This sounds like an amazing program!”

 “It’s a good, solid product. It really works and is unique. I’ve been doing this for almost a year. Not a single person has said anything negative.

 “There’s nothing like it! My patients have found them comfortable. Some have made adjustments – took filling out, put more in – quick & easy, no issues. I feel confident that they get a good product without spending a lot of money.

 “Now, my wife and I both use Fill Station® Pillows.”
