Family Owned Since 1954
Callaway’s Yard & Garden Center was opened by the Callaway family in 1954 and is still family owned and operated.
Almost seventy years ago in a small shop in Jackson, Mississippi, Robert Moody and Lorene Callaway fulfilled a long-held dream of providing healthy plants, quality garden products and old-fashioned service to their neighbors and community.
Their vision seemed to strike a chord in Jackson. Within three years, Callaway’s outgrew the small garden shop and moved and expanded into what they called a Yard & Garden Center, a full service establishment for home gardeners, and a new and innovative concept in the area.
David Callaway was in junior high when his family opened the first shop, but he was deeply involved in the business from the very beginning. His wife, Betty Callaway, later joined the family business and was primarily responsible for developing Callaway’s Christmas store. Their three children grew up working part time at Callaway’s.
David and Betty are still involved in Callaway’s along with their daughter Alison Callaway Richardson and their son Brint Callaway and his wife Annette Callaway.
Today Callaway’s serves customers from all over the state of Mississippi and throughout the South.
