It's been that kind of month in Rockford. Earlier in April, electronics retailer hhgregg announced they were seeking bankruptcy protection in the hopes of finding a buyer for their 220 stores. A few days later, they announced that a buyer couldn't be found.
A couple of weeks back, Joe Dredge and I were discussing businesses and restaurants in and around Rockford that while no longer here, still hold a fond place in our memories. A bunch of callers weighed in on some of their "gone but not forgotten" favorites, too.
