Named after its three founders, Rawdon Tomlinson, Enoch “Les” Gosselin, and Raymond Young, TG&Y opened in 1936 in Oklahoma City, OK. The variety store, often referred to as a five-and-dime store for its low prices, was opened with a business philosophy of “have what people want at a price they can pay.”
At its peak, there were more than 900 TG&Y stores in 29 states. Many locations were in southern states, some in relatively rural areas. The stores had a little bit of everything, appealing to adults for their low prices and children for their variety of small toys and candy. Over the years, competitors like Walmart proved to be too much for the chain to remain afloat. The last TG&Y stores closed in 2001.
