Stay away and do not spend your $ here – I was referred here by a very reputable fabric store in inner Portland. I went in on a weekend to pick up/order foam. Not being the expert the guy behind the counter sold be a High Density (ended up being way too high for seat cushions) foam. I paid cash and had the upholstery sewn for the new foam cushions. When I got them back it was like sitting on hard boat cushions. Not the lofty chair cushions I was expecting. I then called the store, A1 Foam and the owner told me to come in and he would see what we could do. Next day: Took all the cushions to the store and one from another chair to compare. The owner was rude, unhelpful and proceeding to take 30 minutes to look in his office and then take out the foam from a cushion, all this and then he said that there was nothing he could do that I would have to call on Sat when the employee that sold it to me was there. Wait a minute, I thought the benefit of being an owner of a store was that you got to make these decisions not pawn it off on your employee. Needless to say the owner should sell his biz if he does not care to treat customers with customer service. I am very unhappy and the fact that the owner did not give a damn makes me even more upset. I have chosen to just eat my $120 I spent there, order new foam from a place that wants to help and can advise me on the best cushion for the job.
If you're a fan of foam... – Then this is the place is the place to be. If you are a foam/ rubber connoisseur living in the Portland area, such as myself, then you know very well that there aren't many places to turn for your foam needs. But A-1 is truly the answer to all of our prayers. It wasn't until a few days ago that a close friend of mind pointed out this little gem, and since then I've been hooked. When I entered those doors I was simply blown away, never in my life had I seen so much foam/rubber in one room. And it's not that low quality stuff you find some places this is grade A top notch foam. Sometimes I feel as if there is too much foam to choose from!
