About Us

The Unexpected in Tombstone

Many people have visited our stores over the years, and have said the following, “ We did not expect to find these stores in Tombstone!” Thus, we have adopted that phrase in our advertising! We are proud, and grateful, to hear those comments about our stores on a daily basis. Our customers say this because of our commitment to quality, unique selection of merchandise, and customer service and satisfaction.

In business since 1978

Arlene’s opened in 1978 in the “Town Too Tough To Die”, Tombstone, Arizona. Two more locations were opened in Tombstone the early 1980’s. Today, we have 3 Arlene’s locations on historic Allen Street to serve you. In addition, we have a western wear shop, The Branding Iron, at 503 E. Allen Street.
