17. The oldest store in Memphis is on Beale Street
Throughout the rough days of the '60s, '70s, and '80s on Beale, A. Schwab kept its doors open as a general store, soda fountain, and purveyor of curiosities. It’s still there and going strong, providing milkshakes, weird hats, local goodies, and other more curious products, like lotions, potions, and Voodoo supplies.
