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."

A full fledged hardware store and a going concern. Nice display of the similar guitar Elvis bought for $6.95. Staff are very friendly and they have everything you need. Store has been in the same family for generations. Neat place to visit.

Tupelo Hardware had been around with good service forever! A pleasure to go there and get the good service and friendly conversation. If they don't have it you probably don't need it. You will love this place!

Even a casual hardware store junkie would enjoy this busy but well-staffed family run business. If your town has lost the charm of having it's own place to buy nails, but and bolts, or lightning rod, this will bring back those fond memories... Oh yeah....they also sold Elvis his first guitar (but NOT the bike he WANTED). The young lady... More

They are the sweetest in this store. They will tell you the story of Elvis and Gladys and the day he was bought his first guitar. The store carries great products and gives you the hometown feeling.

A friend who lives in Tupelo kept saying she wanted to take us to the hardware store. We tried several times to politely decline - I've never been one to browse through hardware stores for fun. It finally came down to a choice between going into the store or waiting in the car in the July heat. So glad we... More

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.
