Small Business Saturday is almost here (Nov. 27). It’s a day to shop local and support your community.
The Illinois Office of Tourism on Monday released the annual Illinois Made Holiday Gift Guide featuring 20 small businesses around the state and their one-of-a-kind products. A Rockford business made the list!
Featured under gifts for relaxation is Rockford Roasting Company, which, according to the guide, offers a wide range of freshly roasted whole beans and a complete menu of espresso-based beverages, cocoas, gourmet teas and more. You can shop products on their website or just stop in for cup at 206 N. Main in Rockford.
“The 2021 Illinois Made Holiday Gift Guide is an invaluable resource for discovering hidden gems across the state that offer original gifts and experiences that are truly unique to Illinois,” Karla Flannery, deputy director of the Illinois Office of Tourism, said in a news release. “From sentimental memorial pieces, to natural bath and body products, to custom-made baseball bats, the holiday gift ideas in this year’s guide are an incredible reflection of the diverse people, products and experiences found at small businesses all around our state.”
