ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Dozens of Stateline business owners get together to celebrate National Ice Cream day while also promoting the shop local movement.
The group Winnebago Buy Local hosted a totally ice cream social on Sunday at Rockford’s Lombardi Club. For a small donation, families could enjoy a sweet treat of ice cream from the Dairyhaus of Rockton, plus select from toppings handed out by other local business owners. The event provided shoppers a unique introduction to dozens of small businesses in the area.
"We probably double the attendance of what we were expecting. Everyone has been really excited to see why buying local is supportive for our community,” says Winnebago Buy Local Director Lauren Davis.
