Sissy’s Log Cabin broke ground Friday (April 15) on a new location in Memphis. The store will be located in Laurelwood Shopping Center, and Sissy’s will become the official jeweler of the Memphis Grizzlies and FedExForum.

Sissy’s said it is re-establishing its Memphis presence two-fold. As the official jeweler for the Memphis Grizzlies, Sissy’s will become the presenting partner of the floor seat experience with a lounge for Grizzlies’ games.

The new Sissy’s Log Cabin announced its plans to relocate in the spring of 2023 to a new storefront at 4542 Poplar Avenue, remaining part of the Laurelwood Shopping Center. Construction of the new, free-standing structure is set to begin later this year and will wrap up before summer of next year. The new store will be a 9,000 sq. ft. store.

“This is an exciting time for our family-owned company, and we are eager to grow and expand our selection and services for our Memphis clients,” said Bill Jones, CEO of Sissy’s Log Cabin. “The support we have received from our friends and partners here in Memphis has been critical to our business, and we look forward to bolstering our investment in this community with a state-of-the-art storefront and a new partnership with Memphis’ professional sports franchise.”

“We are so grateful for the support from Sissy’s and so happy to see them increase their presence in Memphis. By enhancing the Grizzlies fan experience, both for floor seat holders through the lounge and through custom branded jewelry they will design and produce, Sissy’s has demonstrated their commitment to the city and the region. We look forward to growing our partnership together,” said Anthony Macri, Vice President of Partnership Marketing for the Memphis Grizzlies.

“Laurelwood Shopping Center prides itself on providing the best local retail experience in our great city,” said Cory Prewitt, President of Laurelwood Shopping Center. “Sissy’s Log Cabin has made an immediate impact on the retail landscape in a short time, and we are thrilled to continue this long-lasting relationship. Sissy’s commitment to excellence, customer service, and community involvement make it a perfect fit for Laurelwood.”

Founded in 1970, Sissy’s Log Cabin is a family-owned and -operated jewelry store with six locations across Arkansas and Tennessee in Pine Bluff, Little Rock, Jonesboro, Conway and Memphis.
