Tunica Farm Supply celebrates 40 years in business
David Klimek, a native of Helena, Arkansas, came to Tunica Farm Supply in 1976, fresh out of the service, and never left. Now he is celebrating that business’s 40th year with another milestone – a move to a new home in Tunica County.
“W.M. ‘Sugar’ Durham opened the store in 1974,” Klimek explains, “encouraged by local customers like Lloyd Ryals, Dutch Parker and Paul Battle who were tired of driving (35 miles) to Durham’s store in Clarksdale, Mid-South Farm Supply.
“I got out of the Air Force in 1975 and came here in April 1976. I’ve tried to run the business according to Sugar’s rule of thumb: ‘If output exceeds input, then upkeep will be your downfall.’”
