William and his son, George II, worked together from 1976 until William's death in 2000. Since that time the business has been owned and managed by George H Booth II. In 2014, George II's son, George III joined his father in management of Tupelo Hardware.

Tupelo Hardware Co. specializes in general retail hardware, industrial supply and small engines parts. We're also known as the store where "Gladys Presley bought her son his first guitar."

  • What a friendly little find in Tupelo MS! The overall ambiance is a throwback to the hardware stores that were the hubs of many small towns...wood floors, walls lined to the ceiling with everything.....  more »

  • If they don't have it, then you don't need it. I found toilet stoppers that even Amazon doesn't carry. Been looking for these for 2 years. However, they were out of Elvis.
  • Real hardware store with people that know what they are doing.
