Fisher's Ethan Allen to close Rockford store

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - After nearly five decades in business, Fisher's Ethan Allen is closing.

Friday was the start to the "great $2 million store closing sale" all items in the store are on sale. Ethan Allen, located at 4720 E. State Street, will be opened until its entire inventory is gone. Employees say so far, they have had a big turn out and many customers are sad about the store closing.

"I have shopped here since 1979, so it's been fun to see how trends have emerged and Ethan Allen has always had quality furniture. Not that I can always afford it but when I can I was always really pleased. So to not have the option and to feel like I have to go into Chicago or Milwaukee, that's even more sad," said customer Elise Cadigan.

The store will still be able to special order furniture through Sunday. After that, it will only be selling floor models at discounted prices until everything is sold.
