The old building that once housed American TV and Appliances has a new tenant with longtime Rockford ties.
Gustafson's Furniture will open up at the location on E. State in November.
American TV announced it was going out of business in Feb. 2014, but it sat empty until Gustafson's rented out the space.
This new store is an addition to the current store on Riverside Boulevard, and the owner says two locations means double the service, not just to Rockford but beyond.
"This [Riverside location] serves the West side really well, all the way to the river, Rockton Roscoe, but there's East side business that we're missing, as well as business we do in the western suburbs of Chicago so we can better serve the East side," Gustafson's owner Dale Gustafson says.
The company says the new location will mean about 25 new professional jobs for the area.
