History of Broadway Furniture
My father, who started Broadway Furniture in 1935 in Portland, Oregon, with only $100, always said we were a “blue-collar store.” He stocked items for people who worked hard for their money and wanted to spend it on quality products.
But it wasn’t always easy to make a buck, feed a family, or start a business in 1935. Oregon, along with the rest of the nation, was mired in the Great Depression.
But when my dad, an enterprising young man named Harry Shleifer, had an idea, he followed it through to completion. Harry took that $100 and began buying furniture from local hotels. He sold that hotel furniture in his first store in downtown Portland.
Harry later opened a store on the east side of the Willamette River. Business was so good that his uncles and aunts had to help run the shop.
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Harry returned to the family business. Later, I started helping out around the store, too. You might say that I grew up in the furniture business.
You might also say that my father’s legacy lives on in our new showroom in Tigard — 84 years after he sold his first piece of used hotel furniture in downtown Portland.
Quality, Low Prices, And Style!
Broadway Furniture focuses on the details. Our friendly and helpful customer service, our sterling reputation as purveyors of quality furniture at unbeatable prices, and our ability to stay on top of the latest business trends.
The furniture business, after all, is a fashion business; it’s always changing. So we keep our showroom stocked with the most current trends in furniture — new colors, styles, technologies, themes, fabrics, and leathers, many of which can be mixed and matched to suit your own personal style.
Still, in spite of all that fashionable trendiness, our core operating principles stretch far back into the distant past.
Some things, as they say, never go out of style. At Broadway Furniture, we maintain a firm commitment to customer service, honesty, and integrity.
It’s our steadfast belief that no sale is complete until the dining room, home office, or living room furniture is in its new home and the customer has had a chance to use and enjoy it.
The Broadway Standard
Broadway Furniture won’t sell anything or deliver it to our customers’ homes until every piece of the item has been unpacked and inspected for defects. When you get that new sofa or coffee table, we want you to get exactly the item you were expecting. And we’ll only sell an item if it lives up to factory standards — and our own Broadway Standard.
Long story short: We make sure that everything is absolutely perfect.
Our warehouse (located right behind our store) features a staging area where our delivery crew puts items together and tests them to make sure they meet specifications. For instance, they’ll put a chair, outdoor furniture or a room set together to make sure that it’s good to go.
These are the kinds of customer-centric details that have driven our business since the beginning.
The little things make a big difference. We walk the floor and listen to our customers, but we never pressure them. If a customer seems to prefer browsing on their own, we leave them to it, letting them know we’re ready to answer any questions if they need us.
Customer service has been our calling card since my father first opened the doors of Broadway Furniture more than 80 years ago.
As my dad liked to say: Customer satisfaction is our success.
