Welcome to Bull’s Gap, Tennessee

Bulls Gap was settled in 1794. The town was named for the famous gunsmith, John Bull, who made his home in the gap of the mountains.

During its time, the town has been called Rogersville Junction and Bulls Gap Junction. Eventually, the town — an important railroad junction fought over during the Civil War — was allowed to keep its traditional name, Bulls Gap.

  • • Health Checks: Our store associates are required to conduct health checks before every shift and must stay home if they are feeling unwell.
  • • Employee Training: All store associates will take training courses dedicated to COVID-19 safety protocols.
  • • Social Distancing: Our associates and guests must maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others.
  • • Cleaning & Disinfecting: High-touch surfaces will be disinfected after every use, and we will continue to conduct additional cleanings and provide hand sanitizer in all of our stores.
  • • Face Coverings: For everyone’s health and safety, face coverings are required for our employees and customers.
