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!!
