FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1879
Values like honesty, integrity, accountability, and a strong sense of community continue to be the foundation stones of Chown Hardware. The Chown family instills upon their team and their customers a sense of belonging as an extension of that family and those values that have sustained the Chown legacy for more than 140 years.
Our Core Values
Chown is inspired by a strong belief in community. We are motivated by our trust in the core values of our founding family members. We treat our fellow employees and customers with consideration, dignity, and respect and create safety and purpose for our employees, customers and neighbors. We are empowered to provide solutions and are continually committed to improving our knowledge and abilities.
And we just happen to sell beautifully designed and intelligently crafted products for your home and business.
Chown Hardware was founded in Portland, OR on Sept. 15th, 1879. In 1971, Eleanor Chown saw her vision of a boutique design showroom to come to fruition as the Chown Showcase continues to carry her reputation for excellence, quality service, and premium products.
In 2001 Chown Hardware honored their matriarch Eleanor Chown’s passion to see quality interior products become more accessible to the Pacific Northwest and expanded to Bellevue, Washington. In September of 2019 Chown will launch their third location in Seattle’s SoDo district.
