What is a 5 & 10?
In A Favor Returned, the fictional town of Collins Heights is modeled, rather closely, on the actual town of Haddon Heights, New Jersey.
Today, there are Dollar Stores, 99Cent Stores, and many variations on the same theme in virtually every shopping plaza around the country. Today’s question is one that residents of Collins Heights in A Favor Returned would be able to answer easily. What is a 5 & 10 or a 5 & Dime store and what was the name of such a store in downtown Haddon Heights in the late forties and early fifties?
A Favor Returned has a release date of July 15 but Amazon now has the e-book version available for download.
