A full-service, Ace-affiliated hardware store and small engine parts retailer. We stock items that can't be found in other hardware stores with an emphasis on supplying as man American-made items as possible.

We are also proud of our historical contribution to Rock'n'Roll as the store "where Gladys bought her son his first guitar."

Yes, It's Even a Hardware Store!

And a very well stocked hardware store at that. Plus, you can even buy a guitar if you are so inclined. My son bought one for my grandson while we visited. Of course we had to... read more

Of course we had to visit the display case that housed the guitar that E's MOM (not dad) bought for him. They've even conveniently placed an X on the... More

We were lucky enough to take a tour of Tupelo that included a stop at the Tupelo Hardware Company. What an emotional experience for us! My husband is an avid Elvis fan and he was in awe as soon as we stepped through the door. Our boys, 15 and 13 were amazed at the tall shelves that seemed to stock... More

You have to stop by the Tupelo Hardware Store after your visit to Elvis' Birthplace. They sell a lot of cool Elvis t-shirts to take home as souvenirs.

Great place to visit. The layout is like a hardware store 75 years ago, rolling ladder along the walls. Curved handles for your antique scythe blade, harness for horses etc. An added bonus, this is where young Elvis's first guitar was purchased.

It is what it is.... a hardware store. The staff is super nice, but can spot tourists instantly. They will greet you and tell you the story of how Elvis wanted a rifle, but his mother convinced him a guitar would be better. You have to use your imagination to appreciate this as an attraction, but there is some merit... More

Came here alone last year, met up with Howard Hite. He brought me to his office and had coffee with him. He signed my book that I bought and we talked about Elvis. Really cool experience!!

I think if you are really into Elvis and going to Graceland, you should start in Tupelo with the birthplace and Tupelo Hardware. This really cool looking store is filled with neat stuff to look at and as many of the other commentors mention, the people in the store are very happy to tell the story of Elvis getting his...
