Dennis Hiltner

I’ve been working in Five Points since August of 1977. I was in the Marine Corps – got out 1976 – then came to Columbia, and worked as a stockbroker for a year. Linda and I opened The Gourmet Shop – a lunch, brunch and dinner café, kitchen & specialties store and wine, cheese and fine foods shop – in 1979.

The first time I was brought to Columbia by the people who hired me as a stockbroker, they brought me to Five Points. This is one of my favorite parts of town. Five Points is a small community and I like that. I’ve always been a small town boy; I came from a small town.

I think that Five Points has a place in a lot of people’s hearts.

Five Points is special because of its small community aspect; it’s a little shopping and entertainment area. Our customers have a lot to do with it. There’s this interaction between customers and the shop owners and restaurant owners, so when people come here, you just know who they are.

Mark your calendars, set a reminder, tell a friend, just get down to Five Points for these upcoming events!
