ROCKFORD (WREX) — A new business opens its doors in Rockford.

The furniture store chain has more than 120 locations nationwide.
Bob's Discount Furniture Store Manager Jim Colicino says the store is ready to become a big part of the community, starting by training workers who are all from the Rockford area.
"They come into our culture and then and what we do from there is that we grow," Colicino said. "Our job and my job is to coach teach and develop just to make them better."
Bob's Discount Furniture made $2,500 donations to Auburn High School and KFACT. The store is located at 199 Deane Dr., Rockford, near the corner of Perryville Road and East State Street.
