Della's was closed for renovation in February. Not sure when they reopened. What a welcome change! Della's looks cleaner and brighter. Importantly, gone is the stench of old hot dogs that was pervasive. I can now run my errand and gather sundries without holding my...More

Margie D's Soda Fountain, located in the back of Dellas 5&10, is a classic 1950's era soda fountain right down to the paper hats on the soda jerks. We offer 11 fixed stools at our counter and two booths to serve our customers. The fountain serves all of the classic american favorites along with a wide variety of classic dessert offerings. Meanwhile, Dellas 5&10 sells everything you would expect in a five and dime store including candy and gum, paper goods, daily newspapers, lottery tickets, health and beauty aids, party supplies, beach gear, clothing, souvenirs, toys and games, hardware items, cleaning supplies, cigarettes, greeting cards, etc. The Dellas family welcomes and encourages folks to browse and relax. Feel free to take a soda fountain menu home as a souvenir!
