As of Saturday night, Monkey Joe's has closed it's doors for the final time.

After 10 years here in the Rockford, the owner of Monkey Joe's told wifr.com that the building's landlord didn't extend their lease. This decision forced the business to close it's doors forever, having no plans to move to another location here in Rockford.

In the space vacated by Monkey Joe's, Gustafson's Furniture and Mattress will now be expanding their business. Gustafson's plan is to move it's Riverside location, in hopes to have their entire company under one roof within a year.

Vice President of Gustafson's Furniture and Mattress David Gustafson said:

"Our idea is that we'll expand our showroom a little bit and we're going to expand our warehouse operations over here so you can get your furniture faster than ever before."

Currently Gustafson's Riverside location is having a moving and expanding sale with items on sale up to 50% off.

The managing staff at Monkey Joe's would like to thank their customers here in Rockford for their support of the business over the last decade.
