'There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.'

Another day, another business closing in Rockford.

Last night on Facebook, Monkey Joe's in Rockford announced it will be closing up shop after ten years in Rockford on March 31.

In a very sweet note, the Monkey Joe's family expressed their love for Rockford and the families that have been a part of the Monkey Joe family for the past ten years.

We grew as your children grew and together we made memories that will last a lifetime.'


While the location will close at the end of March, any Monkey Joe's gift cards or Frequent Jump cards will be usable at other Monkey Joe's locations across the country after the stores closes.

The original closing post on Facebook has garnered hundreds of comments and shares, most of which sharing sadness because of the fun their kids always had a Monkey Joe's in Rockford.
