A Closer Place to Shop

By  | 

Construction continues for a Wal-Mart on Rockford's northwest side, but for one woman, that's too far to shop.

You might notice some signs like this up at local gas stations. The push to get a Wal-Mart in or around South Main is a new mission for Alice Veroni. Saturday she spent the day going door-to-door and at local businesses gathering petitions.

Mobile gas stations on South Main and Sandy Hollow both have petitions for anyone who wants to add their signature.
