Overview
More
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.

This store has so many unique items. It is fun to just walk around and browse for hours. My favorite section is the Christmas section and the kitchen section.

There were hundreds of rooms of “stuff”. Ok, maybe an exaggeration, but the store did seem to go on forever! From toys to candy to collectibles to home goods to housewares! You could probably spend 1/2 a day in here and still not see everything....More

A classic 5 and dime store that is much larger than it appears. Kitchen items to games to Star Wars posters, this place has it all.
