The 5 & Dime

Woolworths, Newberrys, etc. For a kid they were a fairly land. Plus for adults they had a bit of so MUCH.

Oh, Woolworth's... I miss that store, too! lol That's where I remember buying my little Star Wars action figures, and a handcuff set that I took out of the store to show my mom... the alarm went off of course. lol

McCrory's was another one in our town. That's where I used to get my baseball cards.

I forget them. I've been to a McCrory's, but not sure if it was where I grew up or where I went to college.

We had Fuston's five & dime. Three stories of pure heaven for a kid. Nothing better then being turned loose to explore all areas while my Mom shopped for whatever it was she needed that trip.

And there wasn't any worries about someone snatching you up and carrying you off either.

Never heard of a Fuston's.

It was owned by one of the bigger families in the town I grew up in. I'm sure you wouldn't find another one any where else. :-D

We had them both right in the next town. I remember the wonderful Woolworths lunch counter, and it seemed like they both had just anything you could want. I miss them.
