Editorial Review of
Five and Dime General Store
A one stop shop for souvenirs and snacks, Five & Dime General Store is the modern day general store. Five & Dime General Stores are reminiscent of an old five and dime or five and ten cent store that exudes a feeling of warmth and comfortability upon walking in the stores. Five & Dime stores carry a vast selection of souvenirs, cold drinks, band-aids, sunglasses, snacks, novelty toys, non-prescription drugs, cosmetics, office supplies, school supplies, batteries, post cards, tote bags, hats, tourist items, clothing items, travel items and other everyday convenience store necessities. Each Five & Dime General Store values closeness, helps keep a community vital and makes the effort to connect to its customers. When a resident of one of the store's cities needs a new battery, an aspirin, an extension cord, a new tube of toothpaste or a cold remedy or any other everyday necessity, they can easily be find it at the Five & Dime General Store. Convenience is a key factor as employees of businesses in these busy areas can walk instead of driving to a store that meets their daily needs. This helps preserve the hometown feeling so many people in those areas want to maintain and protect. Each store provides jobs for over a dozen people in its community, brings local vendors and supply workers to the tourist areas and helps to keep the tourists coming back to the community. Five & Dime General Stores are open Monday thru Thursday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from Friday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
