ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A new business in Rockford is going retro and showing off a nostalgic side of the Forest City.
Our viewers on Facebook wanted to see a story about Bygone Brand, a new t-shirt company that’s highlighting the logos of old businesses from the Rockford area, like the Game Factory which was an old arcade and Geri’s Hamburgers, which had several restaurants around the area.
The company was founded by Rockford residents Keith and Amy Watson and they say it’s great to take a trip down memory lane.
Everybody’s got a great story about these different places and it's great to hear them and suggestions for new places that they loves to see for a t-shirt and then tell us their story on that and we love to hear it and write it down and hopefully in the future we can make them all happen,” said Keith Watson, owner of Bygone Brand T-Shirts.
If you want to get your hands on one of the shirts, you can do so by checking out Bygone Brand’s website here.
