(Portland, OR)  --  A building that housed a Portland furniture store for 80 years will become a shelter for the homeless, temporarily.  The old Shleifer furniture store closed in 2015, and the developer who plans to turn the property into a hotel has agreed to shelter homeless people there for six months.  The Columbia shelter, located on the corner of Southwest 4th Avenue and Washington Street, will be moved to the Shleifer building on Southeast Grand.  Officials say the new Columbia shelter will provide overnight accommodations for up to 100 people, including men, women, and couples.
