A. Schwab Tours
Read MoreShow Less
A. Schwab is a dry goods store that has become a local landmark and Memphis institution. Since being opened in 1876, the store has transformed from a men’s clothing and goods shop to a collection of seemingly every item imaginable. It is the only remaining original business on Beale Street.
With two floors of displays filled with everything from regional arts and crafts to historic books, records, and artifacts, it is only fitting that the Beale Street Museum, located on a small balcony above the first floor, is also housed here. A. Schwab even has quirky memorabilia such as love potions and corn cob pipes. The store’s creaky wooden floors, dim lighting and original architectural details keep the building’s historic feel, making a visit feel like a step back in time. Their motto is “if you can’t find it at Schwab’s, you’re better off without it.”
A. Schwab’s Dry Goods Store is located at 163 Beale Street and is open Monday to Thursday from 12 to 8 pm, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 10 pm, and from 11 am to 6 pm on Sundays. It is closed on major holidays.
Address: 163 Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee 38103, USA
