Amergian Bros.

AmergianCross West Bayside on Oxford Street and you’re likely to spot this old sign for the former Amergian Brothers neighborhood market at the intersection with Chestnut Street. It was founded by George Amergian in 1928 in what was then the Armenian neighborhood in Portland. The market remained in business until the beginning of the 21st century and was for many year’s run by his nephew Edward Mardigan.

  1. Hi PWM – was looking for the post about Petite Jacqueline closing/moving, can’t remember the details. TIA

  2. T,

    They aren’t closing. However they are in search of a new larger space with plans to move by the end of the year.


  3. Agreed, Nick. I can’t believe that space has been derelict for so long. It’s the perfect people-watching spot and with those floor-to-ceiling windows it would be perfect for a set-up like Evo has with the bar running along the windows.

  4. I agree that that is a great spot but whoever ends up in there is going to have some very deep pockets.
