The popular restaurant and bistro in the Quad Cities opened its doors in Rock Island back in 2017 but the owners are closing the doors to do something different and do it on their own accord. Before they do, they need to get rid of their Halloween decorations which you can benefit from.

In a social media video on Sunday, owners of Igor's Bistro (3055 38th St.) in Rock Island revealed that after much thought and consideration, Rick and Kathy Lopez will be closing the restaurant this spring.

"Rick and I put a lot of time, care, and love into this place for the past 7 years," said Kathy in the Facebook live video on Sunday. "It's time for us to do some downsizing and take a different route with our product. We have some exciting plans in the works, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for those updates."

"Finally, we want to thank all of our loyal customers for their patronage and continued support," continued Kathy in the video. "We truly really appreciate it, more than you know. A special thank you to everyone who helped us through [COVID-19] and Rick's battle with it. That was really hard, and you guys did awesome... you really did a lot for us. We appreciate it. We couldn't have gotten through it without you. We love ya'll. Thank you."

In Sunday's social media video, Kathy mentioned that there would be a cash-only memorabilia sale. We now know when that is going to happen and what the menu looks like as they near the closing date.

Thursday and Friday (Feb. 29 and March 1), Igor's Bistro will be holding its cash-only memorabilia sale both days from 11-6 p.m. in the dining room. They have collected a lot of Halloween decorations over the years so if you need to add to your collection, this would be the time to do so.
