ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Nearly 10 years after opening in Rockford, Monkey Joe's on East State Street will shut down Mar. 31.

Managers made the announcement on Facebook, thanking customers for supporting the business over the past decade.

The owner tells 23 News the building's landlord did not extend the lease, forcing the business to close. There are no plans to open anywhere else in Rockford.

The business will honor any jump cards and Monkey Joe's gift cards at other locations throughout the country.
