Rockford's Rural Street Schnucks is closing, and other comparable area business locations ideal for a Trader Joe's location either sit empty, or are on the verge of being so. Rockford is a city of 150,000+ citizens, and a train to Chicago is officially being re-opened, so the time is ideal for a Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's is known for its affordable and at the same time highly unique grocery offerings. Though there are other suitable locations, the Rural street (Rural and Prospect) location is near to downtown, and also sits in a neighborhood radius that would guarantee regular customers.

PLEASE, ROCKFORD NEEDS YOU!!

To:
Trader Joe's
Open a store in Rockford, Illinois.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have been wanting a Trader Joe's in Rockford to be able to purchase 100% holistic food. We have a smattering of organic here and there, but nothing like a Trader Joe's could offer.

      I would shop at Trader Joes at least once a week.

      I shop at Algonquin as often as I can, if they would be here it would be the only supermarket I would use

      As someone who grew up in Rockford, I can tell you the people of the town that I LOVE so very much will make it worth your while.

      Whatever you think you know about the town, the people or it's economy, I can honestly and objectively say that the town is not fairly represented by statistics and reports. I know a TJ's would flourish there.

      I love Trader Joe's and would shop there on a regular basis - IF there was one in town. Because the closest TJ's is about an hour away, I don't shop as frequently. While living in San Diego, I shopped at the Escondido TJ's weekly! ALL of my friends would be regular shoppers too - so please come to Rockford IL!
