Dick, Merle and Joe Allen each owned a grocery store. Joe Allen’s Market was on the corner of Gurley and Grove. Merle Allen’s Nu-Way Market was at 330 W. Gurley. The Allens had another store at 131 N. Cortez and a wholesale place next door called the Food Supply Company. Both stores closed in 1936 and moved to a large brick building in the Old Ball Park called Thrifty Wholesale.
