The Rosburg store has been a local icon since Mable and Leoni Olsen built it at its present location in 1951. The original store, according to to Mike Swanson, was next to the Rosburg Community Hall. He should know because he owned and operated the store for 27 years from 1981 until he sold it in 2008.

Ed and Roni Miller along with Ed's brother, Landen, have bought the store and are in the process of remodeling.

Ed and Landen's father grew up in Cathlamet. The two brothers often hunted in the county and would drive by the Rosburg Store. They saw it was for sale and began to consider the store as a family investment. These two brothers are traveling every weekend for three hours from northern Washington until the remodeling is completed and ready for their grand opening.

As one walks into the store, there is a new window on the east side of the building along with what appear to be knotty pine walls, giving an added pleasant atmosphere.

Roni, Ed's wife, will be managing the store along with Landen.

Landen graduated with a culinary degree from The Art Institute of Seattle. He has said that plans for the store include traditional American hamburgers, but occasionally he will use elk meat and venison.

The brothers hope to reopen the store by the end of May, so one will have to wait to see what else they'll have on the menu.
