Allen’s Drugs

Allen’s Drugs, 4000 South Red Road, Miami

“In the early 1950’s, John M. Allen Sr. became the pharmacy manager for the newest branch of “Breeding Drugstore” in South Miami on the corner of Bird Road and Red Road. On February 1, 1954, Mr. Allen bought the store with a promise and a handshake. He renamed the store Allen’s Drugstore and set on to build one of the greatest success stories in South Florida business history.”

One of my favorite childhood memories are of the chocolate milkshakes with my father at the diner in Allen’s Drugstore.
