ROCHELLE (WIFR) -- A new shopping center will open this summer in Rochelle.
Local business leaders in the Hub City broke ground Wednesday on the $1.5 million shopping center. It's being built right next to the Wal-Mart on Route 38. The 10 square foot strip mall will have seven storefronts, including a Radio Shack and U.S. Cellular Store. The project is expected to create a number of construction and retail jobs.
