Junctions 123 & 125 - Ashland, Illinois 62612

50 YEARS AND STILL GOING In 1959, Harold Allen opened up the Allen’s Eisner Food Store in downtown Ashland . He purchased the restaurant next door in 1963, operated it for a few years and eventually closed it and expanded the grocery store. After several years downtown, he built a new store at the junctions of 123 & 125. It is now known as Allen’s Market. There is also an ice cream shop and a garden shop next to the grocery, that are also owned by Harold. Harold has always been a huge supporter of the Ashland community, and employs several people, both young and old. Allen’s Market is celebrating our 50th year of business. We will be giving away $50 gift certificates each Saturday in the months of January & February, so register now! Also, watch for great specials all year.

Congratulations, Harold, on your 50th year!

Cell Phone vs. Bible What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped through it several times a day? What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it? What if we used it to receive messages from the text? What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it? What if we gave it to the kids as gifts? What if we used it when we traveled? What if we used it in case of emergency? This is something to make you go ….hmm….where is my Bible? Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don’t have to worry about our bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill. Makes you stop and think where are my priorities? And no dropped calls!
