Since 1959, Richardson’s has been a household name in these parts, a name synonymous with great quality, great value, and great customer service. It all began rather sensibly when Lowell Richardson did some upholstery work on his daughter’s car. She was so impressed by the quality of the work that she spread the word amongst her friends, and before long the Richardsons’ basement was transformed into an upholstery shop. In the following years, production grew to such an extent that they had to keep relocating to ever larger properties to accommodate the demand. Finally, in 1964, they landed at 2015 Columbia Blvd in Saint Helens, a 22,000 sq. ft. space they transformed into a full-service retail outlet furniture store. And that’s where they’re still doing business today!

So how did Richardson’s survive and thrive for over 60 years? After all, the industry typically sees its purveyors coming and going with far greater frequency. There are a multitude of reasons, but mainly it comes down to their undying commitment to you, the buying public. Customer service is and has always been priority one. Whether it’s shopping and stocking their showroom with only the highest quality products, keeping those products on-hand for quick and easy delivery, or following up to rectify any problems and ensure complete satisfaction, their dedication to excellence has never waivered.

In addition, Richardson’s is a paragon of the family-owned business. Although established by Lowell and Martha Richardson, they were joined by their daughter Eileen and her husband Chris Kirby in 1970. Chris and Eileen’s daughter Annie then joined with her husband Joe Davis in 1998, and now their son Zach has come into the fray. So that’s four generations who have run this business and provided the kind of consistent quality, care of service, and genuine value that’s almost unheard of in today’s market.

They have always followed the credo established by Lowell on day one, to provide “furniture with a future.” That means working tirelessly to provide you with only the most timeless high-quality brands and products available, products immune from fad and fashion and built to last. Brands you know and love like: Simmons, Sealy, Tempur-Pedic, Flexsteel, and Ashley. They are also proud to carry local, made-in-Oregon brands like Stanton, Englander, and NW Furniture Mfg. All fantastic brands, all with impeccable reputations.

There is really no reason to shop anywhere else. The best products, sold at the most competitive prices, with the best service around. And the cheapest delivery rates, not to mention full-service set-up and removal of the furniture piece being replaced. Come down to Richardson’s today and become an extended member of the family! And in October, wish them a happy 64th anniversary!
