Overview

Opened in 1930, as one, small shop, Vidler's has grown to become the largest 5 & 10 store in the world! Today the third generation of the Vidler family runs the store which has become a local landmark and destination point for shoppers near and far. A great place for the entire family and out-of-town guests, we are an old fashioned five and dime store, and so much more! With 2 levels occupying 4 connected, 19th century buildings, our many counters overflow with a wide variety of merchandise. From nostalgic candy and toys, kitchen gadgets and crafts to the newest items for the recreational shopper, our distinctive shops feature gifts, home decor, jewelry, candles and seasonal decor. A one-of-a-kind shopping experience awaits you at Vidler's, located on East Aurora's historic, red-brick Main Street.

I love this store! I have visited it several times, and each time I find something new and fun. It is very nostalgic, like something out of the Andy Griffith Show......If you happen to go to East Aurora, you must go in and enjoy it.

Love this old style 5 and ten store if anyone remembers what those are. Has almost anything you can think of and a lot of old time candy and toys.

Been going to this HUGE five and dime since I was a kid. You can still get 10 cent popcorn from the old machine. Kids can ride Sandy the mechanical horse. There is a nostalgic penny-candy counter. Lots of rooms to explore.
