We had McLellan’s and McCrory’s. I can’t recall which, but one had a little ice cream counter in it. Good memories of being dragged to those stores by my mom. I vaguely remember the turtles. I got a goldfish from one...it died.Nope. Dime store. Probably an archaic term by now; do they even have dime stores any more?
- W.T. Grant (A.k.a. Grant's)
- Ben Franklin (Actually, there is still one of these not too far from me)
- McCrory's (McCrorey had an "e" in his last name, but took it out because he didn't want to pay for an extra letter on his store signs.) Cheap barstad.
- J.J. Newberry
- S.H. Kress
And perhaps my favorite—and most aptly—named...
- TG&Y (Turtles, Girdles and Yoyos)
I guess now the dollar stores and 5 Below are the replacements.
