Another Rockford business will be shutting down within the next 2 weeks.

Half Price Books has lost their lease and will shut down March 26th. The discount bookstore which opened in 2013 at 6593 E. State St. has been a popular destination for local book worms looking for a good deal.

I called the store to ask about their current inventory and if the "everything under $1" claim is true and it was confirmed. The employee I spoke to said they were still stocking the shelves with "new" inventory and absolutely everything in the store was under a buck.

While it's sad to see another local business go under this is a unique chance to stock up on some reading material at a cheap price. So head on over and see if you can score a hidden treasure at a bargain price.
