I remember Five and Dime stores from when I was very young. I think Woolworths actually started out as a Five and Dime. I'm sure here on the East Coast there was a store by the name of JJ Newbury, which I'm sure was a Five and Dime. You don't see either anymore. This one looks like it still does a good business.
I get a chuckle out of this pair. I have never heard of Dad's money what ever they are. We never had the five and dime although therewas a store we called the five and dime.
Dad's money? Haven't seen a five and dime for many years although they were popular hangouts when I was a kid. Especially the ones that included a fountain.
Lowell, we must be about the same age. Our Woolworth's Store was a Fine and Dime, and yes, they had lots of stuff for sale for 5 and 10 cents. I think the sign in this picture is an antique as the store sells mostly tourist stuff where one needs at least $20 to buy something.
Long time since I've seen a five and dime store.
I like Dad's Money, I didn't know of it...
