The Oldest Five And Dime Store In America Is Right Here In West Virginia

Five and Dime stores were once popular across America, bringing joy to shoppers with helpful household items, cheerful toys and penny candy. Most of the original stores from the early 1900s have been sold or torn down, making this century old store in West Virginia a special treat. A visit here feels like stepping back in time.
