Hamlin Fountain and Gifts is celebrating its anniversary.

And the magic number is 59.

To mark the occasion, today and tomorrow you can get 59-cent coke floats, 59-cent single scoop ice cream cones...even 59 percent off some items in the gift shop.

And what keeps Hamlin’s customers coming back?

“I like the hamburgers and the sandwiches,” said Tony Sanchez Sr., a long-time customer. “And get that cheap ice cream cone. It’s really good.”

One customer tells us they've got the best chicken salad in town.

The celebration continues tomorrow with a sock-hop costume contest, bubble gum blowing contest and 1960s trivia games.
