Standard TV & Appliance has been a Portland landmark since 1947, when it was founded as Standard Refrigeration by Clement and Hazel Gander. In 1952, they opened the well-known storefront on SE Woodstock and lived in a small house attached to the business. After many expansions and remodels, Standard out-grew the Woodstock store and relocated. It is now on SE 82nd Avenue and bears the distinction of being the largest appliance showroom in the Northwest.
Since its inception, the company has grown to over 350 employees and currently has locations in Portland, Beaverton, Tigard and Bend. To this day, it remains Oregon-based and family-owned.
Standard sells appliances by top manufacturers, along with mattresses, electronics, big screens, home theaters and more. Standard’s mission is to provide customers with the highest level of service at the lowest price as fast and efficiently as possible in hopes of providing total satisfaction.
