Serving as a crossroad of retail traffic to eight surrounding counties, Tullahoma offers an eclectic blend of individually owned businesses, national retailers and restaurants. Everything from specialty children’s clothing, fine jewelry, gifts and shoes to home furnishings, farm and garden supplies and new or used vehicles is available here.
The presence of Arnold Air Force Base, Arnold Engineering Development Center, University of Tennessee Space Institute and a variety of industries broadens Tullahoma’s customer base to encompass national exposure.
Boasting the only enclosed mall in southern middle Tennessee, Tullahoma truly rises above surrounding areas in retail offerings. Additionally, we have several smaller outdoor malls and a lovely downtown with successful locally owned businesses. A former Coca-Cola bottling factory, which now houses a café and specialty shops, has been recognized in Southern Living and other regional magazines and on television shows.
Located only a few miles from Jack Daniel and George Dickel Distilleries and the Tennessee Walking Horse capital of the world make Tullahoma an attractive destination in itself. Our Beechcraft Hertitage Museum, Regional Fine Arts Center, Community Playhouse and South Jackson Civic Center draw additional visitors. Tullahoma’s proximity to Nashville, Chattanooga and Huntsville, Alabama, make it an ideal stopping (and shopping) point for travelers to and between these major cities.
Several lodging facilities, including nationally known motels, serve both the business and pleasure visitors to our area; and a variety of restaurants provide fine dining, southern specialties and ethnic choices. Small markets, large grocery stores, drugstores and full-service pharmacies meet the needs of both locals and persons from surrounding communities.
The hometown atmosphere isn’t lost in the hustle and bustle of big business, though. Not-for-profit organizations host frequent fundraisers, bazaars and sales; and these, along with farmers’ markets, are very well-supported.
Our large retail base is just another reason that Tullahoma is the rising star of Tennessee. Visit the Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce for more information on more retail in Tullahoma.
