While many companies across Rockford are closed for the freezing temps today, there are plenty of places that are open if you need them.

We wanted to collect this list for a few reasons.

To thank the first responders who (unless their scheduled scored them the day off) will ALWAYS been working to make sure we're all safe in this awful weather, and also to give us all a heads up for places we may need to visit.

I mean, sometimes you need to stop at CVS or Culver's no matter what! We all need cold meds and we all need to eat.

We'll be hanging out with you too, so make sure to give us a call and let us know how you're dealing with the cold, 815-229-5100.
