Rich’s Opens Seventh Store in Tigard, Oregon

By , October 24, 2022

Since 1979, Rich’s for the Home has been helping folks design settings where they can create unforgettable memories.

Larry Chapman and his sister, Ann, opened their first tiny store in Lynnwood, Washington, in the fall of 1979. Forty-three years later, Rich’s has grown into seven superstores, selling more fireplaces, hot tubs, grills, and outdoor furniture than anyone in the country.

Rich's Expands to Portland Area

We’re delighted to announce that our seventh showroom – at Washington Square Mall in Tigard, Oregon – is open for business.

Rich’s six other stores are in Western Washington, so why did Rich’s expand to the Portland, Oregon area?

Jon Chapman, CEO of Rich’s, said, “There was a big gap in the Portland area in outdoor furniture.”

Fishels Furniture, which had been a mainstay of the Portland outdoor furniture market for 95 years, closed in 2016. Several other Portland furniture and fireplace stores shuttered soon after Fishels, leaving a void in the market.

Chapman and his team heard about some people in Portland who were experienced in the spa business and looking for a new opportunity. After bringing them on board, “We looked for a location and found a place in a recently closed JCPenney building in Tigard.”

The new Tigard showroom is a full-featured Rich’s store. Currently, the hot tub, swim spa, and outdoor furniture departments are open. Fireplaces, stoves, inserts and other hearth products are on display and available. Fireplace and insert floor models will begin burning when permits are obtained. Free in-home design services are available.

Family-Owned Business

The Chapman family has been an integral part of Rich’s since the beginning. Larry Chapman’s wife, Marianne, and their daughters, planned the yearly redesign of the showroom floors at all the stores for many years.

Larry and Marianne’s son, Jon, rose through the ranks and now holds the position of CEO. Some of the grandkids are also involved in the business.

The opening of the Tigard store begins a new chapter in the lives of the Chapman family. “We have a great team in Tigard who has a lot of experience opening stores in that area,” said Jon Chapman. “We are excited to share our high-quality products made specifically for Northwest living with the people who call the Portland area their home.”

The Tigard showroom is located at Washington Square mall, located at the corner of SW Palmblad Rd & SW Blum Rd., across from Dick's Sporting Goods.
