At Miller’s, we take the health of our staff, customers and community very seriously, and we wanted to share with you the steps we’re taking to ensure that everyone has the information they need to protect themselves from and prevent the spread of the COVID-19. We are actively following the CDC guidelines for workplace and commercial business and we are sharing those guidelines with you as well.

Normal Operating Schedules

All Miller’s locations are open and making deliveries on a normal schedule. While some sanitizing product is very limited, we are working hard and looking at all product sources to make sure you have the items you need. We thank you for your continued business and patience as we work with our partners to bring in additional inventory.
