|America's Oldest Five and Dime Store
"One Giant Leap Back in Time"
Welcome to Berdine's Five and Dime, a small, special corner of “Almost Heaven” West Virginia.
Berdine's Five and Dime has been in continuous operation in Harrisville, West Virginia since 1908. We are pleased
as we complete a century of service to our community, neighbors and patrons from afar. We continue to celebrate
the simpler times, slower pace and nostalgia for a time gone by.
We are America's Oldest Dime store. With our pressed tin ceilings, bins of novelties, tin toys, bulk candies, and
almost anything we provide the same friendly service decade after decade. Since 1908 we are where generations
have come for gifts and practical items. Called one of West Virginia's “Best Treasures” by one of our state’s
Charleston newspapers, Berdine's continues to evoke memories while providing practical and purely nonsensical
merchandise. Bulk candy from our antique oak case, bins of old time and inexpensive toys that you remember from
your childhood, gifts for special occasions that you will not find elsewhere. We also carry unique books and old time
remedies along with kitchen gadgets and soaps and cleaning products that have been used for generations. If you
cannot find it anywhere else - try Berdine's! Your grandparents did!
Visiting us is not a step back in time, it is like taking a giant leap back in time! Back to
the days when going to the Five and Dime meant getting supplies as well as the
neighborly news and maybe a spool of thread. Life was perhaps a little easier back
then, certainly a little slower. Visiting our store brings back the feel and experience of
those bygone times when a friendly visit was assured and it still is! We are always
glad to welcome and assist you at Berdine's.
While our store is only 1,500 square feet in size, we are packed with thousands upon
thousand of the unusual, unique and hard to find. When you visit it is impossible not
to stay for a while to browse our shelves, sample our candy, and try out our toys. You
will be taking a "Giant Leap Back in Time."
