Bunk Beds Canada History:


A cute little store is at the corner of Main Street and 29th Ave. We opened our doors there in the summer of 2003. Back then, the area was called Antique Row due to the many antique dealers clustered there. However, our neighbourhood has been gentrified to hip boutiques, restaurants, and artisan clothing stores today.

When we started, and ‘we’ was just ‘me,’ my focus was new and used bedroom furniture in retail and e-commerce settings. Proud to say that my company was one of the first furniture stores in Canada with an e-commerce platform. Even Sears did not have e-commerce at that point in time.

Slowly and surely, with trial and error, experience, market demand, a little luck and a lot of work, reading books and taking classes, Bunk Beds Canada evolved. First got rid of used, then brought in all bedroom-related products. From duvets and pillows, cribs and nursery products, mattresses and frames, and sofa beds to futons. The idea was ‘furniture and furnishings for your bedroom’.


We opened our second location in a warehouse/showroom setting that year. A year later got hit by the financial crisis - a few large furniture stores closed in our city that year - then the Olympic boom followed by its hangover, then American companies rushing north reminiscent of the gold rush era - Target anyone? - made me re-evaluate and reinvent the business.


Started working with factories overseas and brought products directly. This was to lower the cost of our products, have our in-house design, and increase delivery time.


We pruned our suppliers and product lines to be able to focus on one thing: Bunk Beds. And to make it very clear that this is not a foreign-owned company, we added Canada to our name, thus, Bunk Beds Canada.


As of 2019, we are a team of 4 people, running from the same spot I started years ago and keeping it simple. Very happy and grateful for our colourful community and our beloved city and for surviving many ups and downs.


We managed to survive the pandemic! With most of our team now working remotely, we are still standing. This coming August will be 20 years in business.
