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."

If you can't find what you're looking for anywhere else, chances are Tupelo Hardware will have it. This business has been in the same location a long time. (Since I was a little kid and I am now an "older adult.") ,Check it out.

Refreshing to slow down, be reminded of shopping at hardware store when I was a kid, and have friendly chat one on one with an employee that is interested in making sure you get what you need and have a great day! Plus, I picked up a few other unexpected items. GREAT SELECTION!

We travelled here on Memorial weekend to be told the store had closed for the holiday. My very disappointed brother had his face to the window when the gentleman inside came and invited us all in. He was such a star showing us where Elvis bought his famed first guitar and letting us look around. He absolutely made our day... More

We a great place to explore, nothing better than a good old fashioned Hardware Store and not to mention the connection that is has with Elvis as this was the Hardware Store that his mum brought Elvis's 1st Guitar. The staff were all very friend and you can looks a fair bit of time just wondering around.

My second visit here - last one in 1995 with Elvis Fan Club UK. This is the shop where Gladys bought her son his first guitar and it hasn't changed much since. It is still a traditional wood floored store with counters and balconies. The staff are really lovely and helpful and you can buy T shirts with "Gladys bought... More

Always a treat to visit Tupelo Hardware -- it's a working hardware store filled floor to ceiling with everything you could possibly need from a hardware store. Super friendly staff, good prices, and ... oh, did I mention that Elvis's first guitar was from here? The staff tell cute stories about Elvis and Gladys, have a great collection of photos... More

Great old hardware store that looks almost like when it was built. This is where Elvis got his 1st guitar, the lady that was working gave us a guided tour of the store.

Great old hardware store with a huge history. Elvis's mom bought his very 1st guitar here. On the monument outside their is a barcode you can scan that tells the history and other interesting places to visit around town. Within the next 2 or 3 blocks you will find a vibrant downtown with beautiful boutiques, art gallery, antiques and home... More

This is a real working hardware store, the sales lady knew the story well and was keen to share it with us, they let me take some photos in the store and I brought some souvenirs, a nice piece of history
