Balich 5 & 10
Drag box to select area
In operation since 1954, this 5 & 10 in Arlington Heights was taken over by the Balich family in 1972. Joe Balich, the current owner, acquired the store from his father in 1992, though his parents still work there few days a week, making it a true family run business. The store is a "Woolworths" sort of establishment, full of unique and hard to find items. Customers go here for anything from greeting cards to office supplies to pots and pans to toys or socks. The fans are numerous and loyal and keep coming back for the old style shopping of the neighborhood five and dime. Watch for the store soon on Facebook!
