It is never easy to say goodbye to a store you shop at for a long time. Rockford shoppers are getting ready to say so long to another store. 

According to WIFR TV, MC Sports on Harrison Avenue is closing its doors. This is not the only store the sporting goods chain has closed around the area. Last year they closed the Madison Wisconsin store. There isn't much more info about it, but if you like MC Sports, you can still travel to Dekalb as that store is still open.

There is some good news though. Lowe's in Rockford and all across the country is hiring. The folks over at WREX TV say the home improvement giant is gearing up for the second busy season. The first being the holidays and the second is the Spring season.

I have been a fan of MC Sports. When living in Peoria and Bloomington, they would always have a great selection of shoes and sports apparel. It will be sad to have to travel longer.
