Crate&Barrel Crate&Barrel IS LOCATED across from borders
rate&Barrel first opened its doors in 1962 as a family business. The first store was an old elevator factory on Wells St. in Chicago, IL. Because all the start up money had gone into inventory, they used the crates and barrels from the first shipments as store fixturing. “Crate and Barrel” wasn’t just a clever name, it was a name based on necessity. Speaking of necessity, the only thing forgotten on opening day was, believe it or not, a cash register. It’s an understatement to say that a lot has changed between those early days and now. While they still consider themselves to be local shopkeepers, they’re now
operating shops at over 100 stores coast to coast domestically and internationally. Crate&Barrel home stores have won architectural awards for their design and their light filled atriums create an inspiring setting for not only their popular Housewares items such as dinnerware, glassware and kitchenware but for their extensive Furniture Collection which was introduced more than 25 years ago. Crate&Barrel opened their homestore at Bridgeport Village in 2004 to a fantastic local customer who had been eagerly awaiting its arrival. They are proud to be the only store in Oregon and love being part of the local Portland community. Many of their associates have been here since the opening and are pleased to have the opportunity to assist their friends and neighbors in the Tigard store. They are experts at helping customers create and accessorize beautiful outdoor living spaces for the upcoming summer!
