“all things memphis”

In 1876, Jewish immigrant Abraham Schwab opened a store on Beale Street. Over its 136-year history, A. Schwab has become a Memphis institution, beloved by many generations. A. Schwab is the only original business remaining on Beale Street. The owners are dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of the store and telling the story of the street and region through historic artifacts and relevant merchandise. An authentic mercantile experience still greets visitors from around the world. Children of all ages enjoy an assortment of old-fashioned delights. A. Schwab’s is THE place to purchase all things Memphis, from regional arts and crafts, to dry goods, to magic potions, to candies, books, magazines, to famous Memphis brands such as Sun Studio, Hi Records, Elvis, and Stax. This merchandise shares the store with artifacts and mementos of the store and city’s past. In the next several months, the store will add a turn of the century style soda fountain serving home-made southern food and drink will be added to enhance the experience. Additionally, half of the upstairs has been converted into a beautiful and unique event venue. It is perfect for your next wedding, corporate event, or party.

Like walking into a time machine. The store has the feel of an early 1900's drug store. The staff is great. Friendly and helpful. Even if you don't need to buy anything, stop in and have a shake or something.

There are some very interesting edibles for sale here. Can't wait to try the pickled watermelon rinds and corn cob jelly that I picked up. There was an old fashioned soda shop in the store, but they were pretty busy so I didn't order anything.
