Memphis has a treasure in the landmark store A. Schwab. This store has become a Memphis institution, beloved by many generations. 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 original hardwood floors, antique pine display tables (built in the alley behind Beale), old-school merchandise, and rich family history make it one of a kind. I had the privilege to be invited by Terry Saunders to take a tour and see some of the behind the scene developments and to learn what is next for this 136 year old store.
Terry and her team is doing a wonderful job reviving A. Schwab. It is a work in progress. There will soon be a soda fountain / restaurant where everyone can come to hear the Blues! It has been a treat for me to learn more about A. Schwab. This is a Memphis treasure that has to be seen! I’m going to love creating custom gifts for A.Schwab! Thank you Terry for the tour of A. Schwab.
