About Us

About Us:
Affordable Portables is a Chicago family owned independent furniture retailer. We are one of the oldest furniture stores in Chicago and Evanston. Our name comes from the fact that we were one of the first to bring unassembled “Portable” furniture to Chicago. However, not all the furniture we sell is unassembled.
Our stores might not have the most fancy decor but we like to think we have some of the most knowledgeable staff that can help you find the right furniture at the best price. We should have the best price. If you find a better price before purchase please contact us so we can match. Our staff does not work on commission so there is no pressure. We want you to relax and find what will work best for you.
We have 2 stores and 1 warehouse and have been open in Chicago since 1977.
Our business philosophy is to limit cost so we can pass the best prices on to you.
We offer delivery and setup in the greater Chicago area and can also ship to the Lower 48 states. Shipping depends on the item weight, size, and your location. For this reason the cost for shipping is not included in the price. We will work to get you the best possible freight delivery rate. Please contact our Evanston store at (847)866-8124 to find the delivery charge.
