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.”


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.



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.
