LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Visitor disappointed with closed shops on Sunday

Dear Editor,

On Sunday, May 22, after a casual breakfast at Arnie’s with a group of out-of-town friends, the Great Northern shop and a resale store were the only two shops open at 11:00 a.m. Our plan was to spend the day there while our husbands golfed. The ladies and I were very disappointed in the fact that shops didn’t have Sunday hours of operation for visitors to Squires Street. I hope shop owners will reconsider their Sunday hours to accommodate visitors to downtown Rockford.
