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.

When walking into Vidler's from Main Street one would expect to run into Andy and Opey Taylor and the others from The Andy Griffith Show. East Aurora has always been reminiscent of Mayberry and Vidler's is one of the main reasons. Vidler's not only has old fashioned candy, retro games and toys, it has nearly every gift, craft and kitchen... More

Everyone loves Vidler's, don't they? Fun place to visit. They have a little bit of everything. We live nearby and this is our go-to place when we need something unique or not found in most department stores... we automatically think, "Vidler's will have it!" and they usually do! Kids love the penny candy & the vintage popcorn machine. Something for... More

Everything to purchase you can imagine and then some. You want to buy just one of anything - check Vidler's - they probably have it. Friendly people...no hype.

Vidler's 5 & 10 should be on everyone's Buffalo (and surrounding areas) Bucket List. Walking up to Vidler's feels like time traveling back to simpler days. The classic window decorations and the style of the building are so cute! The inside is equally adorable. This place seems to have EVERYTHING you could possibly imagine in a craft shop, drug store,... More
