Shelby Farms has a general store of sorts (Innova for sure, I think some Gateway), just overlooking the lake.
Outdoors, Inc. has Innova
Of course, Dick's and Sport's Authority have some basics
There's one really good shop in Mississippi... don't remember exactly where but let me know if interested, I can find out

Um.. I think that's it - def not much Discraft on the list

Definitely interested.
I have a GPS, so if you can get the address, I can get there.
Thanks.

Yep. The Wall Doxey store is phenomenal, and all discs are also tax-free. They have a great selection of Innova and Discraft, as they carry every disc that is currently in production, in every plastic, and just about every weight. The prices are a little more than you can find online, so it usually will just come out in a wash. The 2 courses are pretty good as well; the front, shorter course is great, and then there is the other one, which is called Turkey Hollow. It is probably one of the toughest wooded courses that you will find anywhere. It will either make your day, or you'll want to burn the park to the ground....

There is another pretty good store out in Millington called the Shelby Forrest General Store. They have a pretty good selection of Innova, and minimal of the other brands. All the DX and Pro plastic is on the wall, and the Star/Champ plastic is behind the register. All you have to do is ask, and they'll let you come behind the counter to see all that they have. While you're there, try one of their cheeseburgers....they are absolutely amazing. In addition, you'll need to play the two Shelby Forrest courses since they're only a mile down the road. Both are great wooded courses with multiple pin positions that will definitely show you where your game is lacking.

Since you'll be close if you go to this store, go to Bud Hill. This is the absolute best course in the Memphis area, and the best course I personally have ever played. Make sure you contact Danny (the owner) prior to going out there since it is a private course; he'll usually arrange to have someone play the course with you and show you around.

If you'd like, I'll be available to show you some of the courses and stores, including Bud Hill, the Forrest, etc. since I live here in Memphis. Just PM me if you're interested.

The store at Wall Doxey was amazing. Discraft, Innova, DGA, Millenium and even a little Discmania. Huge selection. Prices were good on some things, but with no tax and no S&H, they were a bargain.
Highly recommended.

Did you get a chance to play the courses while you were down there?

I haven't been down there for a couple months; do you remember if they have any Discmania PDs available?

I remember only one Discmania disc at Wall Doxey, but I do not remember what it was.
I was unable to play any of the courses, but our time was tight and the wife was not giving up our time with the kids.
