Just five miles from the largest town in Lamoille County is the Elmore General Store.
In continuous operation since the early 19th century, Warren and Kathy Miller have owned the Elmore Store for the past 31 years. The store, like so many in the state, has struggled to stay in business.
“We needed to mix it up and make some real changes to compete in today’s world,” said Warren Miller. “I’ve been away for a long time working out of the store and I came back and said, 'We’ve got to do something to spark some new interest.'”
