SE Portland Location
In 1947, Clement Gander started Standard Refrigeration out of his garage in SE Portland. As his home-grown enterprise grew, he opened a little shop on SE Woodstock Ave and changed the name to Standard Appliance. Clement’s mission to provide the best customer service and the lowest price was a winning formula. In 1981, Clement retired and his son, Bill, took over the company. Bill continued to grow the business including adding "TV" to its name and in 1997, relocating the flagship store to its current location on SE 82nd Ave—just blocks away from its original Woodstock Ave storefront.
Today, the SE Portland location serves as the Corporate Headquarters for Standard TV and Appliance as well as home base for our Parts and Service Department. The 30,000 square foot showroom is one of the largest appliance showrooms on the West Coast. We display product from over 40 top brands, with live kitchens where you can try before you buy, and a mattress gallery where you can test the best Beautyrest mattresses.
Since Standard is still based in the community where it first started, we like to support many local charities and events. We are the proud Main Stage Sponsor of the SW Washington/Portland Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Presenting Sponsor of the One More Time Around Again Marching Band, and a Presenting Sponsor of the NW Natural Street of Dreams. We also partner every year with the SE Portland Police Sunshine Division and their annual holiday food drive as well as many local sports teams including the Trail Blazers, the Winterhawks, the University of Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers.
