The New Huntley Supermarket!!! The new 19,000 sq. ft. Huntley Supermarket is open and what a changel It's big, it's bright, it's in neon! "I'm so excitedl We've worked so long for this!" exclaimed co-owner Joyce Allen Tuesday morning when the new store opened at 7am, now one hour earlier than the old store hours. The Aliens and their sons, Len and Ken, worked well into the night Monday to make the move from the old to the new store. The one of the most impressive new features of the new grocery is the Bakery/Deli. Owners, Al and Joyce Allen, hired 12 employees to work this department alone. There are also a few tables nearby where customers can sit and enjoy a donut or sandwich. Free coffee is on hand for shoppers too. Across the aisle is the new fresh floral section, a pretty addition to the store. Continue down the aisle to a much larger and improved produce section. Other improvements include much wider aisles, bright neon signs over each department, and larger sections for frozen foods, liquor and video rentals. The Aliens visited other area grocery stores for over a year in order to find and combine all the best features for Huntley shoppers. They've come a long way since they broke ground for the construction of the new store last September 4th. In addition to the extra 11,000 sq. ft. of space and new store features, they now employ about 35 people to help run the store. "Huntley began growing in the areas around the town years ago, and we outgrew the old store then,"states Al Allen, who first opened Huntley Supermarket April 1, 1974. "We've been working toward the new store for five years. We knew we had to do something. Just like the police department must grow, the schools must grow, so must the grocery business to service the town." And so they have. Isn't it wonderful?!
