The “bread store” (Butternut Bread discount outlet) in the front of the Rockford Meijer is down and a strip mall is on its way.
According to Rockford City Manager Michael Young, the Ten Mile Corridor planning committee has no objections to the retail shops that will occupy the mall. “It was already zoned commercial because of the bread store,” Young said.
Planned to fill the mall will be a restaurant, The Hut (formerly Pizza Hut), a coffee shop, a cell phone store and a tanning salon.
“I would expect that construction activities will commence very shortly and move at a quick pace, in that they are already behind schedule,” Young said.
