The Milan story began in February 1912, when J. H. Milan, Sr. opened a small shop on Jefferson Street in Roanoke, Virginia. Soon outgrowing the original shop, J. H. and his newly acquired partner, A.H. Milan, expanded into additional space at the same location.

Upon the death of A.H. Milan in 1938, J.H. Milan again became sole owner of the business, and three of the six Milan sons made their careers in this family business. In 1956, after 44 years of continuous operation, the business moved into a new 2,400 square-foot building on Jefferson Street, where the shop remained for over 50 years. In 1994, after decades of running the family business it passed to new owners Don and Myriam Roy. In the year 2000 their daughter and son in law Renée and David Meyer took over and run it today. Their shop is still going and available online at
