Portland Luggage History
It was 1916 when Robert Ganapole began manufacturing custom packing trunks in a small corner of the bustling Portland Waterfront. Exceeding customer's expectations in both quality & price was the cornerstone that built & maintained his thriving business.
In 1943 Robert's son-in-law, Bill Simon, opened a retail enterprise, which provided the best selection of luggage & travel trunks in the entire Northwest. Over the next 56 years, Portland Luggage Company established the standard for quality brand names, the latest styles & designs, and the highest level of customer service. In addition, Portland Luggage offered the most competitive-pricing of any luggage store in the country.
Bill's children, third-generation family members Wendy & Gregg, next maintained their grandfather & father's tradition. Since Wendy's retirement, Gregg continued to operate Oregon's largest luggage, business case & travel goods store, featuring the West Coast's most complete selection of brands, products & services.
And now, 99 years later, Portland Luggage Company offers our customers Free Shipping on most luggage purchases. Additionally, because we are solely located in Oregon, we do not charge Sales Tax.
