Ok, so I know what you're thinking. When you see that the Rockford area is getting another Starbucks it's like, really? Do we seriously need another Starbucks?

You can never really have too many Starbucks; but this is so much more than that.

For months we've been reading about all of these retail stores closing their doors for good, including Target.

Two of them in Illinois are set to close and thankfully, the Rockford and Machesney Park store aren't being effected; in fact, we have a pretty good sign that one of those stores will be around for a while.

According to MyStateline.com, the Machesney Park location is getting a facelift, which includes an upgrade of both the interior, exterior; and the addition of a Starbucks.

Construction is set to begin in April.
