Far more than just a place to shop, A. Schwab Dry Goods Store is a true Memphis landmark. Atop its characteristic battered wood floors and tables, find everything from plumbing supplies to religious paraphernalia. A trip to A. Schwab is a step back in time to the great days of general stores, offering a great selection of everything you need, and many things you might not. Browse through 44 kinds of suspenders, a wall of voodoo love potions and powders and a full kiosk of Elvis souvenirs. Discover bongo drums and crystal balls, shoeshine kits and corncob pipes, long thermal underwear and cotton petticoats, praying hands and plastic back-scratchers. When in Memphis, this is one icon not to miss.
