Aldermen work to find a buyer for the vacant Schnucks building on Rural Street
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- After sitting vacant for more than three years Rockford aldermen are working to find a buyer for the old Schnucks building on Rural Street.
The more than 30,000 square foot building located in the 1700 block of Rural Street is located in alderman Logemann's ward.
While campaigning he said filling the empty store was one of the top concerns he heard about from people who lived nearby.
Logemann believes the high cost of the property was one of the reasons it was hard to attract a buyer. He says the price of the building has since come down to just under $1 million.
Logemann says the city has two prospective buyers it plans to meet with in the next few weeks. The 2nd ward alderman hopes to see action with the building within the next six months.
