Date: Wed, 7 Feb 1996 00:51:41 -0500 From: BARBARA HILL HUDSON Subject: Re: Sears & Roebuck; Montgomery Ward We always used "five-and-ten" (50's and 60's) to mean Woolworth or Kresge's and sometime we would use the whole phrase in a statement like "That looks like it came from the five and ten cent store." Perhaps we were influenced by the song lyrics. (New Jersey and Chicago) Barbara bhhudson[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
