Boonville, IN Store Hosting 65th Anniversary Celebration
Since 1958, the town of Boonville has enjoyed shopping at Miller's 5 & 10, and this year they will be hosting their 65th Anniversary Celebration.
Miller's 5 & 10 has been a staple in my hometown of Boonville, Indiana for 65 years now. It continues to be a favorite shop for my family, as we regularly go there to get some of their delicious bottled sodas and other nick snacks. The kids love going there. It's their weekly highlight that they do with their mom after school. The store itself has been offering great service and products for generations in Warrick County to enjoy. Everything from snacks, and drinks to seasonal home decor and toys. This store has so much to offer the community, and if you have never been before, you are missing out.
