LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Driver grateful for Kimberly’s

Dear Editor,

I wanted to encourage your readers to try the local shops and bring business here to Rockford. I am a Rockford resident and try very hard to give our local businesses an opportunity to get those hard-to-find gifts, etc., but really wanted to sing the praises Kimberly’s.

I was going to be competing with my horse in my very first carriage-driving competition and needed a show outfit. I had no idea where I was going to get an appropriate outfit and thought I was going to have to spend huge dollars on custom-made equestrian apparel. On a whim, I stopped in Kimberly’s to look at their scarves and ended up getting a lovely outfit there with the help of an employee I neglected to get the name of. I told her I needed to look like I was a lady heading to church in a buggy, hat, scarf, skirt, etc.

What came of my chance drop-in to a local store was praise from the judge at the horse show for our turnout, driving terminology for how my outfit complimented my horse’s harness and cart. So I wanted to thank Kimberly’s and the wonderful woman who helped me, while also encouraging others to give our local shops an opportunity to provide products many wouldn’t think they would have. Kudos to Rockford merchants.

Jane Williamson and Sophie the Clydesdale
