Ohio Amish, Shops Open Sunday

Amish Boys Walking Home From Church
Sunday is a day of rest and worship for the Amish; thus, they close their shops for the sabbath day.  The Amish walk or drive their horses and buggies to the church service in their district.  They have church every other Sunday.  On their off Sundays they visit friends, relatives, or the elderly.

We here at the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, invite our guests to join us at our church, Gateway Fellowship, a non-denominational church where the music is contemporary and you can come as you are.

For those wishing to shop on Sundays, many stores are open in the three-block area of Historic Downtown Millersburg Ohio.  Each Sunday morning Paul and Loretta Coblentz, owners of the Barn Inn, share cultural information and inform guests about shopping and tour options.  The following Millersburg shops are open on Sunday:
Amish Country Essentials, 70 East Jackson St., sells their products over the internet and from this downtown storefront.  They specialize in selling their own handmade soaps and lotions while also featuring candles, decor items, pottery, and more.  Sun 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., Mon - Fri 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Jackson Street features their own furniture sold in national catalogs.  They carry antiques, vintage items, primitives, colonial, cottage and shabby chic decor, upcycled and repurposed items, and more.  Open Sunday 12 - 4 p.m.  Beginning May 1, 2011 hours are Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
