Despite the eastward movement of many of Rockford’s big-box stores, many locally-owned businesses continue to make their homes in the downtown River District. Among those moving from their previous locations to new spots in downtown Rockford this past summer was Minglewood.

Minglewood expanded, opening a new store on Seventh Street and converting its previous location on Jefferson Street to a cafe and boutique, featuring local bands.

For more information about Minglewood, call 961-1795 or visit
