City of Rockford: Choice Furniture files permits to begin building inside old hhgregg store

By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – New life could be coming to an east side Rockford retail location as permits are filed to begin work inside the former hhgregg store.

The electronics store near the intersection of East State and Perryville closed back in April, after the company shut down stores nationwide.

Now, the city of Rockford says the owners of Choice Furniture who have a location on South Alpine in Rockford have filed permits to begin building inside the former hhgregg store.

The city also granted permits for new signs for the new store once it moves in.

We tried to reach out to the owners of Choice Furniture to see if they plan to keep their South Alpine location open, however our calls were not returned.
