A-America at Broadway Furniture
A-America, out of Algona, Washington, has a backstory unlike most other furniture stores in the Pacific Northwest. Brothers John and Fred Rohrbach — both graduates of the University of Montana (go Grizzlies!) — were smokejumpers with the U.S. Forest Service who served in Vietnam. (In fact, Fred was one of the last Americans evacuated from Saigon in April 1975.)
The origins of A-America go back to 1973 when the brothers began importing ceramics from Vietnam. Soon after, they visited Taiwan and purchased antique reproductions, including solid oak dining tables, cast iron, and nautical antiques. A-America was one of the first importers of oak furniture from Taiwan and is a pioneer in the furniture import industry.
What does this mean for Broadway Furniture in Tigard? It means we can provide our customers with beautiful, quality wood furniture from A-America, which remains family-owned and operated to this very day.
