Just as we thought too many businesses were closing in Rockford, a new company announced they're set to open in the Stateline in 2024!

With all the restaurants, retail shops, and local businesses in town, it's really nice to see another unique shop opening in Rockford.  I've been waiting for something like this for.... forever.  I'm a sucker for snacks - I used to drive an hour just to get Japanese snacks from Hello Tokyo in Niles, Illinois, but no more wasting gas when I can get it just a few miles down the road!
