This weekend is the Rayne Frog Festival but there is another place worth visiting while you are enjoying the festival.

Worthmore 5 & 10 store is located in downtown Rayne and offers customers the feel of walking back in time.

The store opened in 1936 by Dave Rosenbaum and has remained exactly the same through all these years.

Even the register is the same one from when the store opened more than 80 years ago.

Worthmore sells many of the original merchandise from when it opened including yo-yos, jacks, and other household knick-knacks.

According to the current manager Norman Faulk their flowers are the most popular items.

“We sell a tremendous amount of flowers and the ladies who make the flowers do beautiful work,” Faulk said.

And Faulk says the owners plan to keep the store going for future generations to experience.
