Alpine Flea Market Goes Out of Business

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Our next story comes straight from a viewer. Frank sent us a message wondering why the Alpine Flea Market closed. Well here's what we found out.

Mary Britches, the wife of the former owner tells us the market shut down about two weeks ago and the reason there was just not enough business. Britches says her husband Frank, passed away about three years ago and left the market to his daughter. The Alpine Flea market first opened about 13 years ago.
