South Pittsburg, TN
The very first Lodge Factory Store sits right next to our cast iron foundries in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.
Our South Pittsburg, TN factory store is now open. We are continuing to follow CDC recommendations to keep employees and customers safe. Here is what you need to know for your next visit:
-Check our Facebook page for up-to-date store hour information before your visit.
- We are practicing enhanced cleaning procedures in all areas.
- Although masks are not required in our store, social distancing is still strongly encouraged.
Founded in 1994 to exclusively sell factory seconds (cookware that doesn't quite meet our rigorous standards), our Factory Store has since expanded to include the full line of Lodge products. Find everything from our classic cast iron skillets to specialty items like the cast iron Fluted Cake Pan, Wedge Pan, and the tried-and-true camp Dutch ovens. Discover our colorful enameled cast iron Dutch ovens, our professional-grade carbon steel cookware, and vibrant stoneware baking dishes. Browse through our vast selection of Lodge accessories and additional products.
Our friendly staff will answer any and all questions you may have about Lodge products. We'll help you find the perfect pan, give you tips how to clean and season your cookware, and suggest delicious recipes you can try right when you get home.
Located 30 minutes outside of Chattanooga, TN, the original Lodge Factory Store sits on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau. Take advantage of the spectacular scenery with a hike on Lookout Mountain or a boat ride on Nickajack Lake.
