March 19--BOONVILLE, Ind. -- Miller's 5 & 10 has been a fixture on the South Side of the Boonville Square for more than a half-century.

"My great grandfather (Leonard Miller) and grandfather (Jim Miller) started it together, father and son, in '58," J.D. Campbell said.

Jim Miller kept the store going even with what seemed like insurmountable competition from Walmart. In order to stay in business, Miller made sure he had merchandise the big box stores couldn't or wouldn't carry like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts uniform accessories.

When Jim Miller, 83, died in 2013, the family had to decide what to do with the store. That's when his grandson, J.D. Campbell, and his wife, Jenny, got involved. A former U.S. Marine like his granddad before him, J.D. Campbell was hoping for a chance to return to Warrick County where he and his wife were raised.

"J.D. and his grandpa were really close," Jenny Campbell said. "We were looking to come back home and it all just fell into place. Different family members kept it running for three-days-a-week until we could get back here and actually open it full time again."

Figuring out how to run a business was a bit of a challenge according to Jenny Campbell. "Everything with Jim was in his head. He didn't have a computer. He didn't have anything written down. It was a lot of work trying to figure out where he got stuff from and who those people were and how he ordered."

With a couple of years under their belts, the couple are beginning to find their groove and are happy to be back home to raise their kids, Ella, 10, and Emmett, 6.
