'Five and Ten' stores (sometimes known as 'nickel and dime' or 'five and dime', stores) were American shops where everything cost either five or ten cents.
One of the earliest examples of a 'five and dime' store was Woolworths (which first opened in 1878). Others included S.H. Kress & Co, McLellans, and Ben Franklin Stores.
Fixed price stores of this type are often known as 'variety stores'.
