I saw a post on Rockford Register Star's Facebook page this morning that hit me in the gut a little bit, and now we need your help to verify the truth.

UPDATE: A LISTENER CALLED TO SAY THE LITTLE CAESARS ON 11th STREET IS ONLY CLOSED FOR REMODELING, AND THAT THEY SHOULD BE REOPENED FOR THIS WEEKEND.  Whew! Looks like the pizza crisis has been averted.

Here's the post we saw from a Rockford Register Star reader:

 

I will admit it has been years since I have been to this Little Caesars location, or eaten the pizza at all, since it's not really in my neck of the woods, but I tell my husband all the time that I want it. I swear I ate it on a daily basis during my high school years at Jefferson when we got to leave campus for lunch.

Anywho, JB Love and I used some of our best sleuthing skills, short of driving there ourselves,  to find out if this news was true. We came up blank?

The location is still listed on LIttle Caesars' website.

The Little Caesars' Rockford Facebook page is still active. (Although it seems like the recent posts on it are nationally posted items.)

We called the 11th Steet location's phone number and received no answer. Yes, the website lists that they don't open until 10:30 a.m., but wouldn't they still have an answering machine or service that reports their hours of operation?

Do you know for a fact that the Little Caesars location on 11th Street in Rockford has closed? Please provide us proof so we can pass on the sad, sad news to Stateline area pizza lovers.
