I would recommend Affordable Pet Boarding to anyone that wants a piece of mind while they are away from their pet. Not only are they truly affordable, but the time and attention that was invested in my dog was certainly noticeable.

I am extremely impressed with the way Charles helped me find just what I want in furniture. The support has been very meaningful. I have and will continue to refer people to their store.

I had great service from a very friendly staff person named Barry. They have a good selection, and the only thing I could really find wrong with the place is how it's kind of hard to park there--which really is just something you have to deal with in the city. Anyway, I'm very happy with the futon I purchased.

Got a awesome futon from there for pretty cheap, which is good considering I'm a poor college student. The clutter isn't a huge deal, just don't expect a showroom. Nice enough place, I'd go back.

A great mom and pop shop. Lots and lots of stuff and they are willing to deliver and order things for you. Good deals and just a great family business which is what makes Chicago great!

From the scary delivery men to the laziness of waiting a month and a half for a credit of an item which came with missing paint and dents in it.

I would not recommend buying ANYthing from this store as they were rude and never called back after asking for a credit three times and then hung up on when I called frustrated from never hearing from them regarding the credit.

"I was told that one of my items ordered would be delayed because "there's a problem with the warehouse".

Fine, so we scheduled delivery for another day, where I was told "we'll call you in the morning". I waited, no calls. Called them, the shop manager said "Oh yes, it's in the delivery truck, the guys will call you when they're in your area". They never came. I wasted a whole day waiting.

I called the following Monday, and another manager said he checked and my delivery was never put on the route at all. So the other guy f***ing lied to me.

The following Thursday, I was called at work, and the delivery guy asks if I was going to be home within the hour. How absurd. I'll have to wait till the next Thursday. This is that Thursday. I've been calling them, they're still searching for my item in the warehouse. Manager keeps saying I'll call you back in 15; I've been harassing him for the past two hours. Still haven't called me back. Still lying to me.

I'm not emailing this review to the business, because frankly, I don't think they care."

I was looking for information on Chicago furniture and wanted to share my experience with Affordable Portables. The person who waited on me actually had a brain! She was also cute and very nice. I bought a couch that beat the other couch I was looking at by hundreds of dollars! The couch has had heavy use of all kind and is still going strong. It's a cool store that is unique and helps make Chicago such a great city to live in. I've read other reviews and think they do not do the store justice. Go there check it out. It's way better than a trip to Sweden.

Affordable Portables was a disaster to deal with, they had the worst customer service, I received damaged furniture, and was told contradictory information from their sales people. I was treated very rudely and will never shop there again. The items may be cheap, but it is not worth the aggravation to shop there.

I wasn't really impressed with this location in my furniture search - I had gotten quotes from about five other places in the Chicagoland area, and their quote was not comparable, especially for the quality of their furniture. When I asked them why their prices were so high, they told me they didn't know, that the catalog had set prices (but added that their prices seemed high to even them)!

On the other hand, they had a great selection of furniture that you probably couldn't find anywhere else, and some of the stuff was reasonably priced. If you decide to go - make sure you know what the price should be for the furniture you're buying.

My friend and I bought a dresser at Affordable portables in Chicago. The employees told us that their furniture is much better quality than stores like IKEA. It turns out that the dresser we bought is also sold by IKEA, but for half the price. The sides, top, and front pieces of wood are thick and somewhat sturdy. The back of the dresser is two thin pieces of cardboard and a piece of plastic holding them together. The screws provided for assembly are not typical screws. The screw driver ruined many of the screws because they are of such poor quality. It didn't become clear that the dresser is a piece of junk until I opened the boxes and began assembling it. Be careful! This store does not offer a full refund. We lost $400.00!

Although you won't find the rock-bottom prices that the name of the store would lead you to believe, this is a fairly reasonably priced store that carries very nice furniture. The layout's a bit cluttered, sometimes to the point of having absolutely no rhyme or reason, but the deals you can find make it worth your while to poke your way through mountains of wood and metal.

This place has really good deals on furniture, especially futons and dressers.. the only thing that stinks is its kind of messy so you need to weave through the furniture and step over things.. if you're adament about finding cheap furniture it could be worth the search, this place is highly recommended by lots of apartment finders!

This is a nice store to go to to get some cheap furniture. It is just standard furniture -- nothing really spectacular. I find it a great place to get bookshelfs or standard corner tables. This store is a bit crowded and hard to get around because of all the merchandise filled in the store.

PROS:
CONS: hard to find parking
