"five & dime"

Posted by Scottamus on January 03, 2007

Hi,

I couldn't find the phrase "five & dime" store in your list.
My understanding is the term refers to stores adopting a strategy of giving back a nickel and or dime in change to make the customer feel like he is getting extra money in return.

Also couldn't find "nickel and dime"ing someone.
