Allen’s closes doors

Serve Daily - - INSIDE - By Megan Wall­gren for Serve Daily

Allen’s Su­per Save Mar­kets of Provo and Springville, Utah will close its doors for the last time on Tues­day, Jan­uary 23, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.

Allen’s was started by Or­lando Smith Allen and his wife Ellen in 1944 with a small store in cen­tral Provo. Mr. Steve Allen, Or­lando and Ellen’s son, op­er­ated the busi­ness af­ter his par­ents’ pass­ing.

The Allen Fam­ily had hoped to con­tinue to im­prove their stores through up­grades and open their new bak­eries, named Ellen’s Bak­ery in honor of Steve’s Mother, but un­for­tu­nately, due to health con­cerns, this was not a pos­si­bil­ity. As a re­sult, Mr. Allen has de­cided to close his fam­ily’s busi­ness.

“It was a plea­sure to serve the peo­ple of Utah County for many years. We greatly ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port of our loyal cus­tomers. We thank our team for their years of ser­vice. Our team is filled with kind, hon­est, and hard­work­ing peo­ple. We hope that peo­ple will con­tinue to shop lo­cally with other re­tail­ers. Small, lo­cally owned busi­nesses need the com­mu­nity's sup­port,” Allen said.
