Star Snap Featured Location: Dick’s 5 & 10 

With an adventure around every corner, it's hard not to find something to take home at Dicks 5 & 10! Thanks to our Instagram friend @jdboyn for sharing a picture of this wild candy aisle! 

It’s not that often in life that you can say that a single place has everything and actually mean it.  In the case of Dick’s 5 & 10 they mean it and actually live up to it.  Dick’s is one of the last of a dying breed of “five and dime” stores in the country.  They’ve been in business for over 50 years and are prominently (really, you can’t miss it) located on Main Street in downtown Branson.   

You can find almost anything you need (or don’t need) at Dick’s 5 & 10. Need some unique gifts? Dick’s got them. How about some cool old toys? Dick’s got them. Board games? Yup, they have those too and probably more than you’ve ever seen in one place in your life. How about old-time candy? They’ve got so much old-time candy that your dentist will cry the next time they see you.  When we say they have pretty much everything…we mean it. We could go on with this list for days but instead just go check out their website for a look at what they have to offer

This store is one of the best kept secrets of Branson. Every time I wander into it, I am greeted with something that I've never seen in person before. This is truly like an old general store and its offerings are full of laughter, love, and surprises. By far my favorite spot to shop for Christmas gifts and Stocking Stuffers.”
