- About Us
Appliance City is a three generation family business established in Portland, Oregon in 1962. Edward Robert Usselman started out as Ed Usselman’s Appliance out of a garage after gaining experience from Powers Furniture and Appliances, a hard-working war veteran, Ed established strong roots and an honest reputation that is still with us to this very day.
In the 1970’s, Steve Usselman had gained experience working with his father Ed. Steve started “Appliance City” in 1976 (ie Rip City, city of Portland) during the Blazer-mania era. He kept it at Ed’s location at 4046 Cully Blvd. and Ed Usselman’s Appliance took another location on Glisan Street, eventually moving to 42nd Ave. where he remained less than a mile from the original location. Ed retired in 1991 but Appliance City kept his name and phone number current.
For many years being on the smaller scale of the sales and service industry Appliance City remained a 2-3 person shop later expanding to repair technicians specializing in specific fields and also generalizing to a broader scope of repair and restoration. All use units sold are reconditioned, serviced, cleaned, and tested with 100 days guarantee on parts and labor.
The third generation owner is Steve’s son, and Ed’s grandson Mike Usselman. He strives to keep customers happy providing an alternative to inflated new prices and financing giants. They keep it down-to-earth with really nice people working for non-commission pay.
