Downtown Rockford dwellers will finally have somewhere to grab a gallon of milk.

Whenever I move somewhere new, I forget to check for the closest grocery store.

You can blame this on my Suburban upbringing maybe? I never thought about worrying about finding a grocery store.

Then, you're in downtown Rockford and boom, no grocery store.

But, things are changing!

According to the Rock River Times, next summer we will have a grocery store on North Main Street in Rockford.

The store will be called, Capital Foods and yep, that sounds familiar for a reason, because that new coffee house we're getting over there is called, Capital House.

Both are coming thanks to the Young family in Rockford and I could not be more excited.
