UPDATE: UPDATE: ROCKFORD (WIFR) – We told you first last night that Lundgren’s Camera and Video is closing and now we are learning more about why.
Owner Brad Lundgren says everything went downhill when people went digital and stopped using film.
The company first opened in Rockford in May 1913 on 7th Street. The store closing sale starts Thursday.
Lundgren says he plans to rent or sell the building after everything is sold.
ROCKFORD (WIFR) – A business with deep roots in the Forest City is going out of business.
Lundgren’s Camera and Video is closing later this week at their location on Perryville Road. When we stopped by this afternoon you can see the signs saying their store closing sales should start Thursday.
We called the company to figure out why it’s going out of business, but our voicemail hasn’t been returned.
