For over half a century, Dick’s 5 and 10 has been a cornerstone of Downtown Branson and shopping in Southwest Missouri. With unique gifts you won’t find anywhere else, one-of-a-kind collections spanning generations, toys from yesteryear, items for the home, games, hobby supplies, sewing, an aisle of the quirky and fun and so much, Dick’s 5 and 10 is must-visit during your Branson vacation or day-trip.
Dick’s first collection was the Carl Taylor White River Arrowhead Collection. He then added over 100 signed WWII Aviation Prints, a Baseball Wall of Frame and G Scale Trains that includes two that run overhead. Other collection include old-time Cap Guns, 1900-1940 washing machines, Green Handled Kitchen Utensil and Native American items.
Dick’s 5 & 10 opened in downtown Branson in 1961, and while the city has changed in monumental ways in the 55 years since, the store remains a fixture in Branson shopping. It has changed locations only once, in 1970 when founder Dick Hartley was able to upgrade from his original 1500 sq ft store to the 10,000 sq ft location on Main Street that you see today.
Dick’s vision for a variety store stocked with a little bit of everything lives on, as does his idea to make the store more interesting by decorating with one of a kind collections and antiques. Dick was the store’s sole employee for the first few years of operation and he continued working at Dick’s 5 & 10 until he passed away in 2006 at the age of 80. It continues to be a family business, with Dick’s wife and son still instrumental in the store’s operation today.
